Cheap and dirty threads on ID

I was thinking for just a quick sketch, is it possible to space circles uniformly apart along the inside wall of a cylindrical 3d subtract hole and have all the circles show?

I can see the circles in wireframe -  but when I turn on hidden line mode they dis appear, and when I increase line thickness via adding thickness to 3d properties, I can see the first circle but I can't see the threads (circles) behind the first facet that the first thread (circle) creates...also tried increasing line pen width, circles don't show...

Yes I have and know how to use it - just want to try the circles on this one part - I got the id wrong and would have to re draw the part thought it would be quicker just to draw circles.

When you assign a Thickness to a circle, it becomes a disk. So your approach will work if you enable "Show hidden lines as dashed."

If all fails and another work option could be a avenue.This suggestion may work what you do if you did this in Deluxe.And if you’re using the trail Pro version open the file in Pro and use the Facet Edit on the ID and Delete it will close the ID up and than establish the new ID size. But if you did it in Pro omit the Deluxe suggestion and use the facet edit tool and delete it..

Yes when I set the camera properties to "Draw Hidden Line as Dashed" after adding a thickness to the circles in the 3d properties, the circles show -  but the problem is all the other hidden lines of the drawing show through the surface as well, which I don't want.

The Facet edit tool will not allow me to select the facet of the circles, whether or not I assign a thickness to them in the 3d properties of the circles.  I can however select other facets on the same object though.

Hopefully you had the Part Tree activated if did you could modify Threaded hole to a Plain hole via the Selection Palette than use Facet Edit Tool to delete the hole than will work.
