Learn about thread milling.
[Instructor] In this movie, we're…going to be doing some thread milling.…As you can see here, I've added a secondary vice,…and I've taken my first part, and I've flipped…it on its ends, so I have the ability…to get to this hole here at the end.…So now, let's go ahead and start…doing some threading operations.…First things first, head up here to 2D milling.…Come down here to thread, and I'm going to go ahead…and select a library tool, notice I don't have…a thread mill, so let's go ahead and create one…under new mill tool, click on that one there.…As far as general, let's go ahead…and make this tool number 14.…
And generally, I would fill out this information…over here on the right, but for this example,…let's just go ahead and leave it off.…As far as the cutter, I want to come down here…to the very bottom and choose thread mill.…I want a diameter of half an inch looks fine.…I want a thread pitch of .1, and I'm going to go ahead…and use 60 degrees, everything else looks fine here.…Now you'd generally create this thread mill…
