Modeling a R1/4 thread

Modeling a R1/4 thread

Modeling a R1/4 thread

I need to put a male R1/4 thread on a cylinder. My problem is G and R 1/4 both have a major diameter of 13.157, so when I try to put threads on there it defaults to G1/4.

How do I change this?

RE: Modeling a R1/4 thread

Click on the thread, then its call-out. Go to the hole properties and select "tapered pipe thread" and pick the right size. The only weird thing is that picking R 1/4 it seems to think the thread diameter for R 1/4 is 13.8 rather than 13.157. The G 1/4 thread is properly 13.157. That's probably why it defaults to G. But it seems to me there's a problem with the hole table in that it wants to assign 13.8 to the R 1/4 thread. As you and thread tables say, it's supposed to be 13.157. I don't know where 13.8 comes from. I tried a few sizes and the nominal ODs don't match the thread tables so I suspect a problem with SE's settings.

FYI: I submitted an IR - 8860581

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
