library feature

Hey all, was just wondering Is it possible to make a swept feature such as threaded neck for a bottle and use it as a library feature Im trying my best, but with no luck. if not what are my option for reusing the part and combining it with a different one in the future. thanks from advance,

Piece of cake!

'insert part' is the command you'll want to use.

You can either start a new model and use 'insert part' to bring in the swept threading and build your geometry from there, or you can build some geometry first and 'insert part' later to place the threads where you want them. They come into the new part as a 'feature' so if you need to make updates to the thread, you'll need to switch over to that model, make the changes, and then come back.
