It’s fairly easy to add threaded functionality to our quote system. Our software detects holes that might have threading and prompt you to specify the type of threaded gear you want to utilize there. This example quotation demonstrates how simple it is to include threaded elements in your parts once you have determined the design requirements. You can choose to give all of the holes in your CAD the same threading treatment in UNC, UNF, or metric, which could potentially save you time, or you can select each one separately.
In our system, choosing between internal and external threads on a part feature is simple. You can choose which threaded features are provided by using the fully interactive model on the thread assignment page of your quote. Each trait that qualifies is underlined, and you can choose individual threads by hand. You might need to double-check the diameter of your features to make sure they are within the threading specifications if the thread you desire isn’t an option.
It should be noted that you can switch between the milled and turned options inside each page to check the availability of threads for each ᴍᴀɴufacturing technique while Pᴇʀᴜsing our threading charts. Before starting an order, all threads must be chosen and saved. Please check the thread assignment tab again if you ever alter your ᴍᴀɴufacturing procedure or material because the choices there might have changed.
ᴍᴀɴy CAD packages allow you to display threaded features in a few different ways including tap drill, cosmetic thread, or by the major diameter of the thread. We suggest selecting the pilot diameter as long as it is designed at approximately 75% of the thread diameter. The CAD file should then be submitted in a file format other than STL, we discourage uploading. STL file formats for machined parts because our software is unable to recognize features like pilot holes in that format. You should use a neutral file format such as IGES or step if possible.
ᴍᴀɴy CAD programs let you represent threaded features in a variety of ways, such as by the thread’s main diameter, cosmetic thread, or tap drill. As long as the pilot diameter is planned to be roughly 75% of the thread diameter, we advise choosing it. The CAD file should then be sent in a different file type than STL; uploading is not recommended. Our program is unable to recognize features like pilot holes in STL file formats for machined items. If at all possible, utilize a neutral file format, such IGES or step.
