    One last problem. I cannot use this on o.125" plate with any thread size. I get an error message

    Attach your part here, we'll have a look at it.

    Done. I was able to use the tool on a part with only 0.100" thickness.

    Thanks,

    Huh. That's ... interesting.

    I think it's got something to do with the sketch that's getting used as a template for the coil feature, but I'm not positive.

    I was just told that the plugin does not work with sheet metal parts. Does not make sense.

    Looks to be the case.

    As soon as I turned it back into a standard part, Thread Modeler worked out just fine.

    That part though, it doesn't really need to use any of Inventor's sheet metal tools, so there's no need to make it as a sheet metal part.

    Agree on that part. I do have a sheet metal part that requires bening that has holes. Does not make sense.

    You can always convert a standard part to sheet metal (or the other way around).

    Once you've used Thread Modeler you can't convert back to sheet metal, JD. Features are incompatible, unfortunately. Although ... this brings up another point: when you convert to .IGS, you're going to be losing all the tooling stuff that Inventor builds into the sheet metal parts. Your flat pattern, bend angles, etc., aren't going to come through. You'll just get a model, so you're really not giving away anything to just make the sheet metal part, then convert to a standard part and do the threads afterwards.

    Thanks. I made a backup then converted and threaded. 5 years later ready to send the design for production pricing.
