What does Cosmetic Thread means?
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?
