Hej,


I have a shaft with Metric Thick Pitch, and when I change shaft diameter I lost Laterar Face all the time. Is there any way the Laterar face following shaft diameter.

Best Regards

Amnon,

As you know, by changing the diameter of the Shaft/Hole, the Thread size must also be changed to match.

You could use the Hole command to add a threaded hole in one step.

But, I don't know anyway to do external threads in one step (without a Macro or Powercopy). It would be nice to specify a thread size, and have the Shaft automatically sized.

You could setup a formula; the Thread Diameter = shaft diameter

After trying different options, I did notice that re-selecting the Thread Type would automatically change the thread size when I had the exact shaft diameter.

Thanks

I did forula the Thread Diameter = shaft diameter, but the problem is that thread diameter do not recognize thread surface
