Threaded Hole Diameter

I was wondering if there was a way that when I created a threaded hole that the system modelled the major diameter of the threads instead of modelling the Tap Drill Diameter. If so, how to I change it? What happens is when I go to manufacture the part and have you tap the workpiece, I sometimes get gouging error because the tap appears to be in cutting into the part and not just cutting up to the surface of the part.

You can edit the nxXX_Threaded_Hole_Standard.xml to match your Manufacturing standards.

I don't know if I want to edit that because I use it to give me drill sizes that I have not yet memorized for given taps. I was hoping for a quick fix here but I might have to ask the manufacturing forum why with the correct drills and taps that when tapping I frequently get gouge errors.

Or, would just changing one of those columns still give me a reference for correct drill size but model in the major diameter of the threads?
