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. This plug-in was first published as an ADN Plugin of the Month:


The plug-in has been provided with the complete source code needed to build the application, with the intention of encouraging users of Autodesk software to use programming to tailor the products they use to their specific business needs.

  • sehr gut

  • Not a good real world application for the industry.. more a visual tool
    Nicholas Tinney | March 26, 2013

    Really nice tool for visual applications... I was very hopeful that it would allow me to easily put threaded features in a printed part. The pitch offset with the percentage adder throws the pitch off and will cause binding... had to model a real ANSI. Any way of getting the source code to play?

  • Don't know
    Morris Humphreys | November 14, 2012

    Can't find any documentation on how it works....

  • Thanks

  • Not for standard threads
    Wayne White | November 01, 2012

    WARNING: Does NOT do standard ANSI or ISO threads. It looks like I will have to go back to generating the threads the hard way or else redo the source code to handle standard threads.

  • Very Good App. Works well.

    Thank you!!!

  • Very highly recommended
    Alistar Dean | August 27, 2012

    Been working on some old British motorcycle components and this has been invaluable in building physical thread forms for Whitworth threads.

  • Does not work for me on R2013
    Rob Veer | August 22, 2012

    Have tried multiple sizes/pitch offsets but dialog box continues to say: Failed to create CoildFeature... Try with a bigger Pitch Offset value.

    I get the same ... It fails on an M4 .. works on an M10 tho ..

  • Good, but cant do threaded holes
    Deepak Maini | August 20, 2012

    This plugin has been around for a while and does a great job for threads created using the Thread command. However, it does not work on tapped holes created using the Hole command. This means that we have to first create a simple hole and then add a thread on it using the Thread command. Would have been good if it could handle the tapped holes as well.

  • Que buena herramienta!!!!! Muchas gracias!!

    Very useful for details on views

  • Nice Tool

    nice tool for my job :)

  • Simple but Efficient
    Jingyi Liu | July 31, 2012

    Now it only support thread feature, can't recognize the thread in hole feature.

  • Great!
    Martijn Visser | June 14, 2012

    It's very simple to use and does the job well. I was looking for this kind of thing earlier this week, and now I have it, thank you!! :)
