Threads G1/2

Hello you Pro-E users

Is it possible to make a hole with Gassthreads G1/2 (14/")

I work with Pro-E windchill 5 and have no  colleges to ask it to.

Greetings from Belgium

Chris

    Hello Chris (from Belgium)

        Have you made regular machine threads in Pro-e? If so you would build the Gas Threads the same way except you would angle the SWP PROFILE to match that of the Gas Thread specification.

      Chris,

         What version of Pro-e are you running?

          Chris,

            Attached is the basic pipe thread roughed in around the G1/2 standard NPT dimensions. Use "insert mode" to step through it's construction.

          I went to this web site just for the basic dimensions (  http://http://www.webtec.co.uk/tech/connections  )

            You will need to finish it's construction based on NPT standards!

           

            Have fun!

            Best regards,

            Bob Barker

    Christiaan,

     

    Two general choices with threads: Cosmetic Threads or actual helical geometry.  If you want to create the real geometry, you use Helical Sweep/Cut.  There are a few ways to do this.  Although it's not necessary, I prefer to create a hole first.  It provides a good reference, and you can put in a chamfer before creating the cut.  If you want more details, let me know.

    Hi Christiaan,

    On WF3 the thread and holes are defined in the .hol file.

    you can either remake your own or look for the correct one on the net.

    Hope this help.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Nicolas

    PS See bellow are a few thread I've found on the net.

        Re: Threads G1/2

        This files have to be placed in the same directory as iso.hol and unc.hol.

        You then need to restart proe. you should see different choice of thread in the hole tool.

        If you want to create your own thread you need to edit this files with pro-table.
