Threaded hole assembly features!

I wish to add some threaded holes to an item as assembly features.  Unfortunately in the Hole Options dialog box you have every type of hole under the sun as an option EXCEPT for threaded!

 

Can somebody (maybe somebody from Siemens) please tell me why threaded holes cannot be added as assembly features?  Was it too difficult to code?

Hi @chrisstandring,

 

I'm able to add threaded holes to an assembly......

Chris,

I believe you need to select one std (like ISO mm), and 'save as default'.

A tooltip informs you of this if you hover over the 'threaded hole' button.

Can't provide screenshot right now since I have set the std.

 

Then the threaded hole becomes available.

 

Good luck!

@Ulf_Eriksson, Well that was subtle!  No tooltip at all.  The thing was set to "mm".  Once I set it to something other than "mm" or "inch" the threaded option came to life.

 

Thanks for that!

Hmm, I see the tooltip but I'm little astonished that mm isn't accepted.

Hi @Ulf_Eriksson

 

 

there must be a "hole table" which holds all the threads and bore informations.

And man must select one of those common tables (excel files) to let SE know which one You want to use.

When you install Solid Edge one of the things you define in the installation wizard is what standard (e.g. ISO Metric, ANSI Inch, etc.) you want to use as a default in Solid Edge.

 

In my case I set the standard to ISO Metric when I installed Solid Edge.

 

Then when I put a threaded hole into a part (in the part environment) that Standard (ISO Metric) is already set and I don't have to explicitly set it to enable the thread option.

 

Why, then, is the standard set to mm and not ISO Metric in the assembly environment?  Thus requiring me to explicitly choose (for my case) ISO Metric.  That makes no sense to me!

Hi @chrisstandring,

 

I did the same thing on install, and have not had this happen.  I wonder if it might've been an accidental scroll wheel motion while the cursor was passing over that selection box?
