nice,but would be better with more features
Great for creating a screw, but cannot adjust thread manually.
No TPI adjustment options.
It's easy enough to create a bolt by creating a cylinder and then apply a thread to it.
What I really want is to be able to declare threads-per-inch.
Would it be possible to add options to customize the screw (ie. pitch, thread angle, minor diameter)? Currently it seems we can only set the screw's height, width and the size of the head.
I have downloaded it but it won't load when i select it in Fusion 360?
(1) exit from Fusion 360 (2) install the .msi file that you downloaded (double-click it) (3) start Fusion 360 (4) type the letter "S", which brings up the shortcut menu (5) type "create screw"
It is listed in the Plug-Ins drop-down menu, but nothing happens when the run button is enabled. Also, there is no start button listed under the Insert or Create menus. Enabling run at startup seems to do nothing.
same here, I am installing the Plug, find it and press run. But nothing happen
I am using the education version, is it missing the relevant documents?
hi am i missing something as looking at the plugin you can still only pick a define thread from the section IE 10mm 4mm 6mm i need to make a thread that is 19mm so being able to put that value in or select it would help more thanks
Hello Paul, did you ever solve this? I need 19mm too. I wonder why it is not a standard thread in Fusion, when most switches I find on the market are 16mm or 19mm? Thank you
Hi, I read that the plugin has beed updated, but, I still can't run it.
There is updated version here, but it still does not run, could u help me?
Tried to download it but it is not working.
Would be great to design your own threads.
The "Spiral" mode is not helpfull to make exact threads.
Title says it all: at least for me I am unable to run the addon. https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/fusion-360/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Scripts-and-Add-Ins-do-not-run-after-the-September-update-of-Fusion-360.html
Same here. Would be nice to use it but it looks like it is not. @Support Any help?
Hello Aaron and Mathias Thanks for the review. I did an update and it was already sent in for submission on 05-01-2020. Currently the status is pending and I am waiting for Autodesk to finally publish it. Since this process seems to be outsourced to India on the Autodesk end it is a tedious process. You can get the latest version on GitHub https://github.com/Bitfroest/CustomScrews/releases Thanks in advance! Best Fabian
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Thank you !
:D Muchas gracias.
Please, make it for macos
I would like to sugest adding in American Standard thread sizes. it would also be nice to chane the cap to philips head. and an option to model the threads on the compnent.
Great creator ! Thanks !!!
Good job! Is there any way to delete the center screw before the others are created? If I have material in the center, it cuts the first screw into my design.
Thanks for your comment! First screw now gets hidden.
Great plug in
Die App ist einfach strukturiert und kann leicht bedient werden. Achtung: keine Parameter per maus ändern, da sonst massenweise Fehlermeldung kommen!
Vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Mit dem neuen Update sollten fast alle Fehler behoben sein.
