    Default Inventor 2011 IGES Thread Export Problem

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    When exporting to an IGES format the threads are missing.

    Why?

    Thanks,

    Victor

    Cosmetic threads or modeled threads?

    My guess is cosmetic (picture texture that sort of looks like threads). Zoom in and see if you have real threads (v-notch geometry).

    Default Missing Threads on Export

    The threads were made by drilling a hole in a solid and specifying the thread type.

    Those threads are just an image map that Inventor applies to give the appearance of threads. They're not really there - it's just a smooth face of the appropriate diameter, as far as exporting goes. If you take a look in the Autodesk exchange, though, you can download an app - made by Autodesk - that will convert your threaded hole features into actual modeled threads. You can export those as actual geometry.

    Problem solved thanks to PhilippeLeefsma Senior Developer Consultant.

    He sent a link to the correct version for 2011.

    Note: This tool converts a Thread Festure not a Hole Feature using a thread.

    Thanks Philippe!!
