Creating a Matching Cosmetic Threads Folder

You can filter components with matching cosmetic threads from Interference Detection results and place them in a separate folder. Interferences due to mismatched threads, misaligned threads, or other interfering geometry are still listed as interferences.

To segregate interferences between matching cosmetic threads:

  1. Click Interference Detection (Assembly toolbar) or Tools > Interference Detection.
  2. In the PropertyManager, under Options, select Create matching cosmetic threads folder.
  3. Click Calculate.

    Interferences due to properly matched cosmetic threads are filtered out of the main results and listed in the Matching cosmetic threads folder.

    Interferences not moved to the folder are due to other problems and those interferences need to be investigated.

    Examples: Cosmetic Thread Interferences
