Thread indicator in Isometric

Is there a way I can show the dashed thread indicator in an Isometric view as shown in the PDF.  The PDF drawing was done is SolidWorks.  Looking for Solid Edge's version of doing this.

 

Please help.

that thread was physically modeled.  

 

If you model the feature then yes you can show it just liek that...

 

but most eveyone only represents threads... to save PC resources.

Re: Thread indicator in Isometric

I see what you are referring to, I don't mean the actual modeled thread. I mean the dashed elipses at the two holes on the body.  Those are pipe ports for air lines.  I need those dashed lines to represent the cosmetic thread without changing the view shading

Hello,

 

Can you project a dashed circle onto the countersunk surfaces in the model and then show the sketches in the draft?
