Tapped hole symbol not displaying in idw (2015)


Recommended Posts

I recently updated to Inventor 2015 and since then tapped holes are not displaying correctly in idw. They only show the core drill. My custom hole chart identifies them as tapped holes correctly but I want them to display correctly in the drawing also.

Any ideas? Is there a simple setting I have overlooked?

OK, looks like nobody else knows...

I found the solution anyway; in the display options there is a tickbox 'Thread Features' which needs to be ticked. It must have been on by default in previous versions as I never needed to do this before?



I have attached a jpeg for reference.

Thanks for Replying to your own thread with a good explanation.

My tick box was unchecked too.

The picture is worth, well you know 1,000 words.

So much better than "Never mind I figured it out"
