  • brill just need some tweaks
    Amatris1996 Amatris1996 | June 05, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    this is really good, but how do i make it "molded"? and also how do i change the pitch?

  • trotzdem Danke
    Denis Schönberger | June 02, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Bei der Freeversion vom 2024 Fusion360 weisen alle Tutorials zur Schrauben erstellung auf aktionen die kostenplfichtig sind, ohne die die Schraube kein Gewinde hat.

    Danke dass dies Addon for free ist.

    Mir gefällt nicht (oder ich bin zu doof)

    - die Auswahl der Schraubengröße ist unübersichtlich

    - die Ausgewählte Schraube wird in den Einstellungen niht angezeigt

    - nach Fertigstellung der Schraube muss das Gewinde mit einigen Klicks erst modeliert werde (nicht intuitiv / Anleitung nötig)

    - abschließend muss oben bei jeder Schraube noch ein Überstand entfernt werden.

    Für jemand der mal eben eine Schraube 3D drucken möchte ist das ohne Tutorials nicht möglich.

    Trotzdem 3 Sterne, weil ich nicht weiß woran es liegt und auch nix besser gefunden habe. (außer Freecad > umsonst > einfach > funktioniert)

  • Missing manual thread adjustment
    Rohan Khan | October 08, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great for creating a screw, but cannot adjust thread manually.

    No TPI adjustment options.

  • does not add value to 360
    Art Lieberman | February 13, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.

  • Need more customization options
    Ethan C | October 13, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.

    Thank you!

  • Looks good but won't open in Fusion 360?
    Samuel Husband | June 26, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have downloaded it but it won't load when i select it in Fusion 360? 

    Art Lieberman | February 13, 2021

    (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"

  • Unable to start plug-in
    Michael Smolek | June 02, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.

    Sascha B. | June 11, 2020

    same here, I am installing the Plug, find it and press run. But nothing happen

  • I have installed successfully, but can not run

    I am using the education version, is it missing the relevant documents?

  • still cant define a size of thread
    Paul Elliott | January 24, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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 

    David Segal | February 01, 2021

    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

  • Does not run...

  • Plug-In not working
    Mathias Kern | January 23, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.

  • Addon will not run after 2019 September update

    Mathias Kern | January 23, 2020

    Same here. Would be nice to use it but it looks like it is not. @Support Any help?

    Fabian Schurig (Publisher) | January 23, 2020

    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 Thanks in advance! Best Fabian

  • nice
    Zoltán Tolmács | January 31, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.

    Fabian Schurig (Publisher) | August 01, 2018

    Thanks for your comment! First screw now gets hidden.

    Die App ist einfach strukturiert und kann leicht bedient werden. Achtung: keine Parameter per maus ändern, da sonst massenweise Fehlermeldung kommen!

    Fabian Schurig (Publisher) | August 01, 2018

    Vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Mit dem neuen Update sollten fast alle Fehler behoben sein.
