    custom thread

    hi, does anyone know how I can get NX10 to simulate a custom thread?
    when in Manufacturing section, the thread options are just standard e.g, depth, angle etc, but I am trying to programme a butress thread using a dnmg tip

    I have written several programmes like this by hand, and just thought it would be quicker to get the software to do it instead as it takes a good few hours working out all the co-ordinates

    thanks in advance

    I don't think you understand what i'm asking
    I have 25 years experience programming all different machines
    I can programme custom threads manually
    I am purely asking if there is a way i can do the same thing
    Using NX10, and if there is, can somebody tell me how
