Tapped Hole Depth

Hi



im a newbie just started using ProE2001 at uni. Can anybody explain how a tapped hole depth is specified? For example If i want to produce a 7/16-14 UNC hole i can only seem to pick the default 1.10 as depth. If I change this it always reverts back to 1.10.



Thanks

As a rule of thumb, you can determine thread depth as a one dia depth, one and a half dia depths, two dia thread depths and so on and so forth. 1.10 looks closer to 2.5 dia depth. Are you sure that the 1.10 is Thread Depths?
