Looking for a source of thread profile drawings for ansi and iso where I can use standard profiles for helical profiles to generate "true to life" threaded parts. Yes I know it is data intensive but my customers like to see threads and not some sort of shaded line thing. I have found many copies of standards for thread profiles but no actual drawings of proflies and I am hoping to save a little time here by not having to draw these.

Hi cutter

There is a tooth profile in ReadySketch, 2nd button from the left, 3rd button down.

Hi Chris,
I had moused over this before but "radiused equilateral triangle" did not translate to "thread profile" in my literal mind. Thanks

....No idea where that hint came from, it had a meaningful name in the original program You are probably not the only one that can't find it.
