Description

The plugin creates knurl patterns on cylindrical, conical, toroidal, and NURBS surfaces. The attached videos explain and show examples of how to use it.

 

Available features:

  • straight, crossed (only for cylindrical), diagonal and diamond patterns for cylinders, cones, toruses, NURBS,
  • selecting multiple faces,
  • custom length of knurl,
  • swapping start-end side (for non-cylindrical faces),
  • TPI (from 8 - coarse to 80 - fine),
  • knurl angle (70, 80 or 90 degrees),
  • grooves number (for crossed pattern),
  • helix angle (10° - 45°, for diagonal and diamond patterns),
  • teeth direction (for diagonal and diamond patterns),
  • tip flattening factor (0 - 1, height = factor * half of tooth's depth)
  • fillet factor for grooves and tips (0 - 0.2, fillet radius = factor * tooth's height),
  • showing preview,
  • showing progress,
  • canceling process.

 

Execution of the plugin takes less than a half of a minute on i7/8GB RAM/512GB SSD computer for 20mm diameter cylinder and medium TPI. For a large number of teeth, faces with complicated geometry (torus, NURBS), diagonal and diamond patterns it can take a few minutes per face. During the operation a progress bar with the current step is visible.

  • Great tool

    Work really well.

    Would be very nice if it would work inside a base feature.

    Hello Andreas. Base feature is tested not only for this plugin. When there will be no problems it should be updated in this or next month.
