About This On-Demand Webinar

Watch our webinar as TriMech Application Engineer, Sarah Taylor, divulges her favorite three ways to generate threads. She teaches two different ways to create physical threads, which are represented by solid material and will lead to more complex model files and accurate calculations of mass properties. Then, she shows you how to form cosmetic threads, which are represented by an image mapped to a cylindrical surface but have no impact on the mass of the part. 

In this webinar, Sarah covers:

  • Thread feature
  • Cosmetic threads
  • Sweep feature
  • Thread profiles
  • Helix features
