Missing External Thread Callout with interrupted threads

    I tried to find this among the other topics without much success and I've had this problem for a couple of years now. Surely, I'm not the only one.

    If I make an external thread using the tool in part modeling and then add some feature on the thread, like a keyway, the 2D drawing application will not recognize the threaded feature. In turn, it won't display the cosmetic thread lines nor will it provide the thread callout. Any suggestions?

    The slot mucks it up. Suppress the slot and it will work. Obviously that's not acceptable so ideally you need to submit this to Support so they can fix this.

    I think you could cheat that view it if you make your slot actually be added material hovering above the threads. Of course this would mess up the 3d model in assemblies and also any other views - so you would have to do it as a separate configuration just for that view.

    This is just a workaround for that view. Please also send it to support for them to fix it.

    It is a known bug. Just untick "Create chamfer on edge" in the external thread dialog and update drawing (remember to "insert cosmetic thread" again).

    And when is it going to be corrected? It's still present in v23 beta.

    Thanks. I can work with that.

    I've been resorting to manually noting the threads as opposed to the automatic callouts.

    Hope the bug will be resolved soon.
