Digitally signed app




The threadModeler tool has been developed to allow  Autodesk® 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.


Please watch this short video for an overview of the threadModeler.

    Perfektní appka :) .... Perfect app. THANK YOU very much :)

  • Exactly what I wanted from Inventor.
    Perrin Zahn | January 21, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Amazing. The app is small, making it easy to download just about anywhere, the installation takes seconds, and the thread-converting process is intuitive and easy to do. I literally can't think of anything else I'd want from this add-on.

  • Great tool!
    Lars Van Der Wal | January 07, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Use it for 3D printing. Thanks :-)

  • worked for small threads
    Fra H | December 06, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It actually worked great for a 3/8" nc thread, but did not work for a 7/16" nc thread.

  • Excellent Plug-in for 3d Prints
    Sotiris Katsikis | November 19, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is an excellent plugin to enable 3D printing of threads.

  • Great for 3d printing
    Michael Berna | October 23, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use this for converting the built in thread representations to 3d printable objects. This saves me a lot of time and ensures an accurate thread.

  • Perfect idea and very decent plug-in.
    臧 晓晗 | October 13, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I like it and I support your plug-in and YouTube channel. By the way, I'm Chinese. LoL

  • Thread annotation
    Katarina Goreta | September 25, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    how to annotate this thread in drawing for machine operator, I tried but wont let me to annotate!?

  • WOW! Works Great
    Dan Murphy | August 17, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Click on the tool. Click on the tread file and boom! Saved me a lot of time instead of doing it manually.

  • 3d Printing
    Iain Mcmurray | August 16, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Amazing and simple to use. Perfect for setting up my models for 3d Printing when I need threads.

  • Perfect!!!
    Johann Hepp | August 10, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works better than expected. Relieve the work. Thank you!

  • Great tool
    Brad Headlam | August 08, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Time saver if you need to fully model the thread. Only downside is creates large file size, but still great.

  • Works good, a few issues
    Frank Okipnak | August 04, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    As everyone else is saying, great for the most part, just needs to be refined so can do more thread styles as well as holes properly. Otherwise, very handy and cool. The error I get the most is "Failed, try with a bigger pitch offset value", no matter what I try, does not work.

    Sule Wad | August 01, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    A great Tool

  • easy app to use
    Julian Shepherd | July 13, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    really easy to use great results .

  • Works good
    Ben Vinck | June 26, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It does what's supposeed to do. Nothing more. Nothing less.

  • Excelente!
    Luis Carlos Vega Renteria | June 25, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Muy buena aplicacion! Yo te sugiero que hagas un pequeño tutorial de como hacer roscas para NPT ya que creo que nadie sabe como hacerlo. Gracias

  • good
    谢 凡 | June 12, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    it works very good,especially for 3D print.Thank you!

  • Straightforward and Effective
    Jonathan Bazak | June 09, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Does exactly what I needed it to do: make matching 3d-printable threads on holes and surfaces with just a handful of clicks. Support for more non-standard ISO metric threads would be cool, but there are plenty here as-is. Very handy extension to have!

  • good
    Waiman Liu | June 06, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    very good. i can 3d print many gears now !!

  • Absolutely amazing
    Giacomo Brugnolo | May 24, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful for 3d printing and making your components look absolutely better!

  • Awesome
    Ricardo Fernandez Saavedra | May 15, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works perfectly! Thank you!

  • Can't be used with .idw callouts
    Douglas Reiland | May 14, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The downloading and aesthetics of threadModeler are fine, but, unfortunately, this application is not compatible with .idw drawings. Inventor does not recognize the threadModeler modifications to the .ipt, therefore they cannot be called out with hole/thread specifications on drawings. I submitted this to coolOrange tech support. They acknowledged that this was a problem and acted as though this was the first time anyone raised this issue with them.

    Daniel Gamarra | April 30, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I downloaded the plugin. The installation was successful but i can't see the app in the ribbon. Is it working in version 2018??

  • Worked perfect so far
    Simon Roth | April 27, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Had no problems with it, created perfect threads for 3d printing. Thank you

  • Very Useful
    Jordan Coquoz | April 18, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I don"t normally rate things but I wanted to give this five stars because of how amazingly useful this is. Huge thanks to the developers of this tool.

  • Cool so far
    Engineer Draft | April 12, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Have used it once where I wanted to really expose thread on a drawing, so that immediate clarification would happen. Worked well and was happy, good in context of time saving for those one off type jobs.

  • Works well for me
    Jonathan Colella | April 10, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    No hassle, as advertised

  • Great app needs a few tweeks
    ROGER HOOKER | March 29, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    it's very responsive, however it's difficult to champher and seemingly impossible to extrude through.

  • Awesome
    Michel Varjao | March 08, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

  • Worked perfectly
    Nick Pound | February 13, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Easy to use and the thread came out perfectly on the 3D model

  • Version 2018
