our fastener library is full of screws and bolts that have no cosmetic threads. Never saw the need for 'em. We made these fasteners down through the years as we went on our merry way, and I think about all of 'em exhibit a solid cylinder that is the same size as the major diameter of whatever thread they were supposed to be. In other words,1/4-20 screws always had the main threading body be 0.25 inches. Not the tap diameter of 0.201.
As such, in an assembly drawing cross-section, one ends up with the crosshatching of the base part coming right over the solid edge of our fasteners. And as it's a cross-section usually with no-hidden-line removal happening, we don't show the inner edge (major diameter) of the base part (the hole) which leaves the base part's crosshatching hanging in space inside our fasteners . . .
PLEEEEASE don't tell me to go back and fix our fasteners. There's only ten bazillion of the things . . .
I've tried messing with dtl-file parameters like hlr_for_threads and thread_standard and others, too. None seem to have any effect on where the crosshatching stops. Is there a way to do this? Or should I just bite the mascara and start applying cosmetics to the ten bazillion ...
help, please? t'anks, thalia
p.s in case you're wondering, we never had a problem before 'cause no one ever went over our drawings with a bloody magnifying glass before! some people . . . .
