Symbolic thread


New member
Hello guys and gals.
I'm new to SolidWorks and got stuck on one thing:when I section view my part, I get a view of a real thread as you can see in the bottom left picture, but I need to make a symbolic view of a thread when I do a section view. On the right side of the picture attached I made a view with MS paint to show how I want it to look like. How do I do that in SolidWorks? Is it somewhere in the options?
Sorry if there was a thread like this before.
