I'm attempting to create in internal thread to an imported part and I keep getting an error message that saids "boolean operation failed to return a valid part". I created an external thread and that worked on a new part. I've tried removing and adding material, as well as tweeking the sweep face with no avail. Your suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I would suggest creating a support ticket and sharing the document with support. Without seeing the document it may have something to do with the imported part. Is the import being seen as a solid component? Also might be good to do a quick check on the scaling of things as that gets me every once in a while.

    I adjusted my pitch and that fixed it. I was over complicating the solution. Just needed a fresh perspective.Thanks.
