threadModeler automates the generation of modeled threads based on Autodesk® Inventor® thread feature.

General Usage Instructions

The threadModeler tool has been developed to allow Inventor users to generate a realistic modeled equivalent thread based on an existing Inventor thread feature.

Users are able to select an existing thread feature in the model, which the threadModeler then converts to a realistic 3D modeled thread based on the underlying thread feature properties.

Modeled threads are accurately generated saving a lot of time and effort for the user when compared with a manual approach, bringing a higher degree of realism to your models.




The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the app/plug-in.

You can unload the plugin without uninstalling it by unchecking the "Loaded/Unloaded" check box associated with the plugin in the Inventor Add-In Manager.

You may have to restart Inventor to completely unload the application.

To remove the plugin completely, Right Mouse Button click and uninstall the application using the Autodesk App Manager tool, located on the Ribbons Tools tab > Options Panel.

OR, you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 7/8/8.1/10), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.
