Cosmetic Thread means?

    In many design softwares,like solidworks and inventor, rather than actually physically alter the object, it changes the image of the surface to look like a thread instead. The thread will still appropriately appear in drawings though. Its just easier than having to make complex sketches to fully create the thread.

    thanks, I was wondering the same. So if i use Solidworks and put on matching male/female threads and print, will it print working threads from the thread command or do I have to manually make threads with sketches and following path?
