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 will start installing the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin.
You can unload the plugin without uninstalling it by unchecking the "Loaded/Unloaded" check box associated with the plugin in the Autodesk® Inventor® Add-In Manager. You may have to restart Inventor to completely unload the application.
To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button. OR, you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel/Programs and Features' (Windows 7/8.1/10), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.
IMPORTANT: coolOrange will not further develop the app or provide new versions for newer Inventor versions. The threadModeler for Inventor 2020 is the last version, which is published here. We reserve the right to remove the App from the Autodesk App Store at any time.
You can find the source code for the threadModeler on a public GitHub repository: https://github.com/coolOrangeLabs/inventor-thread-modeler
