ProE help needed
How do you cut threads in ProE ?
I'm weaning myself off of AutoCAD, and I'm very new to ProE, so please give as detailed a reply as possible.
PS : I can think of one way to do this, using the "helical sweep" tool, but I'm sure there must be a better way.

Nevermind...I just found out that ProE does not have e tool for drawing threads because the additional surface area results in giant file sizes. So it only has a "cosmetic thread" display - showing the min and max diameters, just like in AutoCAD.
Anyway, the helical sweep tool works reasonably well (you actually have to trick ProE by introducing a tiny mismatch) for drawing threads, but it takes a little time, and there are problems at the start and end of the threads. Thius can, in most circumstances, be overcome by threading a greater length and taking off the excess, by either slicing or subtracting.
