Machine Screws


Recommended Posts

Use the sweep command.

Quick example in v2010 attached.

In 2012 the object is more stable and the drawing faster after you add the threads to a core. (for some reason the sweep cannot be converted to a generic solid). I can't remember if the solid engine switch happened before or after 2010 so it may behave better (or worse) for you.

If you double click the threads in design layer-1 it will be clear how the sweep is created.

Design layer-2 adds a solid core to the threads and is easier to deal with.
