    Your machinery handbook (and various online resources) will have the major and minor values for your thread (unless they are really oddballs).

    Yes you can edit the settings in the toolpath wizard or you can update the thread library so your 1" 20 settings can be used in the future.

    This blog post will answer other questions that you may have able thread milling with BobCAD.

    11 Important Questions About Thread Milling | BobCAD-CAM

    These questions are based on a thread milling webinar for the V29. You'll find V6's interface to be slightly different but all the same options are available for either BobCAD CAM or BobCAM for Solidworks.

    If there is anything else I can help with, please let me know.
