Andrea, your question reminds me of something else I've wished for in Pro/e for a
while ~ a cosmetic knurl, like a cosmetic thread. Maybe you could create a
cosmetic thread and change the note in the drawing, delete the parameters you
don't need, keep pitch, maybe add something about style (straight, angled,
diamond) and depth. In lieu, you could create a cosmetic sketch which hatches
itself to show location in a view that will be parallel to the sketch plane, than
add a note about style, pitch and depth.
I tried something else which didn't work very well ~ creating a diamond shaped
sketched curve, then patterning it. That went alright, but it gives you nothing
more than a cosmetic sketch. Then I tried projecting the curves onto the outer
surface of head. Bad, couldn't get it to project to both halves and selecting the
curves abominable because each is a separate chain. If it had been simply
crisscrossed lines, it might have worked. But still when you are showing these in
a drawing view, you'll see no more than if you put the hatch pattern on a plane
through the middle.
Just some ideas. But, really, don't go overboard. It's just knurling and it takes
only two or three key pieces of information to get it made.
