ThreadModeler

ThreadModeler

Win32 and 64, English

Autodesk, Inc.
Thread Modeler automates the generation of modeled threads based on Inventor's 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.
