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.

  • Great tool!
    Lars Van Der Wal | 一月 07, 2018 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Use it for 3D printing. Thanks :-)

  • worked for small threads
    Fra H | 十二月 06, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

    yeah its great

  • Excellent Plug-in for 3d Prints
    Sotiris Katsikis | 十一月 19, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Great for 3d printing
    Michael Berna | 十月 23, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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.

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

  • Thread annotation
    Katarina Goreta | 九月 25, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • WOW! Works Great
    Dan Murphy | 八月 17, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 八月 16, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Perfect!!!
    Johann Hepp | 八月 10, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Great tool
    Brad Headlam | 八月 08, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 八月 04, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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.

  • Super

    Hi there, As others have already thanked I also want to do: Thank you guys!

  • easy app to use
    Julian Shepherd | 七月 13, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    really easy to use great results .

  • Works good
    Ben Vinck | 六月 26, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Excelente!
    Luis Carlos Vega Renteria | 六月 25, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 六月 12, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Straightforward and Effective
    Jonathan Bazak | 六月 09, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 六月 06, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Absolutely amazing
    Giacomo Brugnolo | 五月 24, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Awesome

    Works perfectly! Thank you!

  • Can't be used with .idw callouts
    Douglas Reiland | 五月 14, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 四月 30, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

    Cool Orange (發佈者) | 五月 03, 2017

    Hallo Daniel, we are currently working on the version for Inventor 2018. We are planning to release it until May 12. Best regards Markus

  • Worked perfect so far
    Simon Roth | 四月 27, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

  • Very Useful
    Jordan Coquoz | 四月 18, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 四月 12, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    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 | 四月 10, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    No hassle, as advertised

  • Great app needs a few tweeks
    ROGER HOOKER | 三月 29, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

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

    Albert Eurich | 六月 20, 2017

    When using the thread modeler you create a second volume (thread). Now turning or extruding on that element you need to click on "select volume" and then select the thread itself to add it to the process. Was also wondering in the beginning :)

  • Awesome

    Very good tool. It saves a lot of time =)

  • Worked perfectly

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

  • very cool thankyou
    Robert Barrett | 一月 28, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    massive time saver I 3d printed a 10 mm nut and screw on our fortus 450 and as far as I can see its perfect . Robb

  • Must have app
    Michael Hanimann | 一月 27, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Realy important app if solids for 3d-print should generated.

  • Time Saver
    Jason Wells | 一月 17, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Very useful tool. Adds to the wow factor when showing off your work and for rendering. Works great for 3D printing. To get the chamfer, you need to edit the sketch of the second revolution. Remove the corner where you want the chamfer to be. Great add-on!

  • Excellent App
    John Hackney | 一月 14, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    This application will save you tremendous time if you need fully modeled threads in your model. If you do rapid prototyping of threaded parts, it is a life saver.

  • OK
    Tomas Popelka | 一月 12, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    good tool for real thread

  • Excellent, where applicable
    Ulrich Bahners | 一月 11, 2017 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Download: was simple. Installation into IV2017: was easy. Be sure to enable Auto-load and disable blocking! First use: is intuitively easy. Limitations from my p.o.v.: 1. Do use where applicable: only when thread gear display is needed. 2. It´s a makro, not an Inventor Feature => no thread info on drawing with the (dynamic) thread note command, and no subsequent change of thread Features. My Résumé: Great tool, I am a fan, thank your very much coolOrange!

  • Great app
    Kaan Demirtas | 十二月 12, 2016 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Works fine and enough for my needs. Real threads are a sometimes a fine details sometimes a necessity. Works as both for me. Thanks and keep up the good work!

  • Works well few small issues but overall pretty good
    Phil Brodie | 十二月 12, 2016 驗證下載 (這是什麼?)

    Great tool looks good and works well only really used to create standard metric threads so far with good results did encounter a problem with chamfering the bolt edge though to finish did not work to well with the leading edge of the thread when mating up to hole also could not lose the opening dialogue box after using a glitch that I had a bit annoying having that on the screen all the time. That said it was impressive in showing a proper cut thread although the file size increases dramatically so it would not be good for a large assembly model with lots of bolts in it.

    Jason Wells | 一月 24, 2017

    If you edit the sketch of the second revolution, chamfer the corner where you want it to be. finish sketch and it should work. Since the sketch is not constrained, fixing a couple of the lines will keep you from accidentally moving one and jacking stuff up.
