Simplify Cosmetic Thread Callouts with SOLIDWORKS 2020

Article by John Lee, CSWE updated December 17, 2019


New in SOLIDWORKS 2020 are simplified callouts to cosmetic threads.  In prior years, the callout would automatically include the type of thread.

With checkbox enabled, thread type is shown

Thread type display is now optional in the callout, thanks to a control checkbox that is available from the Cosmetic Thread Property Manager:

With checkbox cleared, callout does not include thread type

This is but one of many updates and improvements in SOLIDWORKS 2020.  Stay current with some of the more impactful updates to SOLIDWORKS in our Advanced Update Training Class!
