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.
