I have a revolved part where i have added a thread to a cylindrical surface. 

 

when ive sectioned that part on my drawing i cant see the thread. 

 

i have gone into properties of the view (and parent view) and selected - Show threads in Section Only section views. but this has made no difference

Hi @MagRiz 

 

 

 

I remember, that there was a bug in SE2019 without MP, but this already is fixed since months, and You signature shows that You are using ST9

 

There is a single situation where a thread is not shown in a draft section and that is, when the section does not go exactly through the center.

 

This always is a good indicator to check the section line position and to always use a relation to fix it there.

Hi @hawcad 

 

unfortunately i cant upload the draft file, but what i might do is create a new part/ drawing and try it on there and send that if it doesnt work.

 

im confident the section goes through the centre

Hi @MagRiz 

 

 

OK, immedeatelly seen.

This can not work.

 

You have a 12mm core hole and put a M12 thread on it!

 

For inner threads I allways recommend to use a hole feature.

You even can create the counter bore hole with thread and chamfers in one step

 

See images:

Hi @MagRiz 

 

 

 

the only point I would like to claim here is, that IMHo Solid Edge must not allow to create such a feature at all!

This must be prevented by the system and may not depend on a users choice.

So from that point of view, it is not You failure, it more is a weak functionality and control mechanism of SE.

Hi @MagRiz 

 

 

and another information I hav eto give to YOu is how to "repair" it for Your existing part.

 

I would reduce the inner diamter of that revolution to e.g. 8mm and would add a thread hole afterwards.

 

See images:
