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.
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!
What you posted is very nice indeed. Thank you for that.
But what I want is much simpeler, I only have to see the hole in my part, but the thread in a drawing if posseble with anotations like what thread it is. Like Pro e 5 does with simple Metric threads. I think I have to write a new config-file. Do you know what I mean?
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.
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.
PS See bellow are a few thread I've found on the net.
I suppose you are close to have given the right answer but...
I can not open the files you send along (hol) the pc seems to think it's a kind of file like "holidays of microsoft office outlook".
Is it possible you did something wrong or did I? I send one unzipped back.
I should say or you try it again or you tell me what i've been doing wrong.
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.
This was what I wanted.
It works perfect I'll have to find out if The DIN ISO 228-1 is in those files you send me.
Thank you again now I know where I can change all the threads I want.
To bad no they are not. Are you or any of you readers of this discussion, holder of those thread files according to ISO228-1?
I did allready look it up and have not enough specifications to make my own.
I told it before this is something for PTC. They should bring ProE up to date with all ISO specifications.
I think to open a new discussion about that.
