Hello all - I'm new to Solid Edge, and am using ST4.
I have created a couple 3D models using synchronous tech, and from those created 2D drawings. Both parts have cut views.
In one part, the threaded holes are displayed correctly on one end, but on the other end the major diameter lines end before the champfer. (See attachment "champfer end") Is there any way to fix that?
In my other part, the minor diameter isn't showing at all (see attachment "missing minor diameter") - it looks instead like a regular hole, even though the top view clearly shows the thread designation. Is there a setting somewhere that I don't have selected in order to show this as a threaded hole in a section view?
Hi there @JLMA,
In regards to the chamfer end, it looks to me [hard to say for sure, without eyeballing the model] like the thread extent is not set "To Hole Extent", which should give the result you're looking for.
For the second issue, it'd be the nominal diameter that is not displayed here, yeah?, as the actual hole in the material is shown correctly.....I'm thinking back to ST4 [even yesterday was a long time ago for me ] there was a setting in SE-Options, or the section view properties for this.
What ST4 maintenance pack are you on? [find this info like my picture below... mine is 108.00.03.004 x64]
Try these two settings. I found in order to change the view appearance after change the mode setting I had to go to advanced view settings in view props, turn on process intersections, update the view, then turn off again.
Give it a shot.
Edit: You can also toggle "show" of the affected part in the display tab of view properties instead of using the advanced tab. Apparently anything that causes a serious regen.
Or: none of this helps you at all.
Spot on @JB......I have always just placed such relations on my cutting plane geometry, but going back & editing it to be off center, indeed makes the thread nolonger display in the section view.
EDIT: actually, it matters which side you are offset to also.....when the cutting plane passes through the circular break side it fails, but go to the other side, and it works as expected. I'd say it's a reportable bug.
Thanks for the quick replies!
Thanks for the quick replies!My maintenance pack is 104.00.00.082, and I'm running the university module, and just to add spice to my life it's in German....
HI there @JLMA,
Ah, OK....the Student Editition is typically devoid of any "maintenance packs", as they become available to download, and only to those commercial customers on active [paid] maintenance.
Is there anything at your end stopping you from upgrading to the latest version of Student Edition, being ST8?
The reason I ask, is many of the feature stability & enhancements are bundled into the successive releases. Obviously, some bugs still creep in, as the program [as does the system platform] evolves in new directions the developers & users alike, push it towards.

Did you update view after each setting change? You can't just toggle the setting back and forth.
