If you ever get a chance to use “cosmetic thread” function on a model, you may also want to display the callout in 2D drawing.
First, create a cosmetic thread display on the model by going to “insert” -> “annotations” -> “cosmetic thread”.
In the dialog box, specify a standard if you want (type & size as well). In the thread callout section, that’s what you will see when the callout is displayed in the 2D drawing. The field is grayed out because a standard is utilized. If it is switched to none, you can manually change the callout.
If you already have a drawing, the callout needs to be activated by right clicking on the cosmetic thread in the 2D drawing, and select “insert callout”.
The callout here is nothing but a note. You can manually change the text in 2D drawing, but the change won’t propagate back to the model level. Also, if you change the callout text at the model level, the text in 2D drawing will update accordingly.
