Be respectful, on topic and if you see a problem, Flag it. February edited February in General. I was playing around with trying to make a bolt on my 3d printer and came up with template of sorts for making both Bolts and Nuts. I'm not an engineer and most of this was done with just a few hours of research on the web. For those of you who maybe know a bit more than me fell free to correct any terminology I may have wrong. To use; duplicate the parts studio, and edit the values for "Whole Word" variables only.
Editing them will most likely break things. I developed this to create and print nuts and bolts on my 3D printer. As such the Tolerances have to be much greater than real machined threads.
The bolts and nuts I have produced with this work with a machined thread checker I purchased from Home Depot. Tagged: Nut bolt thread. February This is very cool! June I like this.BoltGen creates accurate Metric and English machine bolts of any length. Download, unzip, and place in Rhinoceros Plugin Folder. Rhino command is BoltGen.
To Create Threads
More Rhino utilities from McVan Aerospace. Jacob-Jan, In BoltGen there are a few thread sizes that I could not find head data for, so the bolts are created as threads only. Try using a standard thread size.
Or if you absolutely need a head on the threads-only creation, you can create the next size bolt with a head, cut the threads off leaving the head, and Boolean-union with the threads to create a complete bolt.
Note that the head size may be a bit off from what you expect, but can be re-scaled before the Boolean Union. Regards, Ray. It should be noted that BoltGen v1.

Follow the embroidery guidelines to a tee. Or the quality of your embroidery orders will suffer. When editing embroidery files, work within the actual embroidery area dimensions. Our embroidery file templates will ensure that designs stay within the maximum permitted area.
Print product graphics will often not work for embroidery. Avoid using very small letters because the embroidered text might not be legible. Keep the text at least 0. The minimum recommended line thickness for the regular satin stitch is 0.
You can measure the text in Illustrator either by using the measuring tool, or by converting the font point size to inches. But this depends on the font. We recommend using simple fonts like Arial, Helvetica, Myriad pro.
With distressed or textured graphics many details might be lost during embroidery depending on the texture size. This can cause several problems. Avoid these issues by filling the negative spaces with another color. We can only embroider solid shapes and colors. Graphics that cover a large part of the embroidery area will likely exceed the maximum stitch count of 15, Remove all backgrounds from your files to make sure they don't exceed this count.
Photographic images have to be recreated to include solid shapes and colors. Use bold shapes and text. The area for side embroidery is smaller than in the front. Include up to 10 characters in your text to make sure that the final result looks great. Our digitizers decide on the types of stitches that will be the best for each design. Make sure to follow the guidelines because ultimately the type of stitch used will depend on your graphic.
If you have any preferences for stitches, include them in the embroidery notes section. This is because we have multiple digitizers who manually process the files, and each of them could digitize the graphic differently.
The stitch density and direction differ in hat and apparel embroidery. Get in touch with our in-house design team!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. Works great and is easy to use. I use this feature primairly to display threads on my stl files for 3D printing instead of manually making my threads. Definitley a time saver. It's very nice program.
Works great with metric profile but I needed to make ISO trapezoidal tread and didn't recognise it. Tried using this to easily 3D print something with male and female threads. Their modeler doesn't have any tolerance for male to female and did not work. This does work but you have to add in your own clearance, allow 0. For example if your external thread is on a shaft of 25mm, the internal hole for the thread diameter needs to begin at Today I tried it in Inventor It function.
For interior thread it is necessary to make the hole and thread have you make extra. I also use Inventor At first i build the hole and after that the thread. What is my mistake? Do you have a solution? Regards Stefan. Thanks for this useful app To bad Inventor does not give us the option to model the threads like Fusion A few things could make it better, like Also, don't add the coil feature to a seperate solid.
It will give the correct thread model. This is the one improvement I can think of making. Except there is no support for ACME threads. I would love to see that added in a future release. The app is small, making it easy to download just about anywhere, the installation takes seconds, and the thread-converting process is intuitive and easy to do. I literally can't think of anything else I'd want from this add-on.

I have just used Thread Creator for the first time and it was a good experience, but I am interested in other thread forms such as BSP british standard pipe based on a Whitworth form, I am searching a solution to providing this form as thread creator does not presently have it an an option.
Any ideas or advice please. Best Answer. March Accepted Answer. I've added this to my to-do list. There is already a new improved version of thread creator in development. It's way better than the current one, and I've added this request to the list.Many of us are unaware about the brilliance of fractal art or animation for that matter.
You can use this art for beautifying images and videos with unique elements. A fractal art consists of mathematical calculations of the fractal object and showing the result in the form of animations, still images and media.
Being an integral part of digital art and computer art, fractal generators are taking the market by storm. You can make use of them and create breathtaking images that are otherwise very complex to design, if fractal generators are not there to lend you support. We have rounded up a list of fractal generators for you.
Among the free fractal generators, Mandelbulb 3D is a popular choice. It can carry out 3D fractal imaging to form fractal objects out of numerous nonlinear equations. Lighting, specularity, color, shadow-and-glow effects, as well as depth-of-field are included for the 3D rendering, so that you can have precise control over the imaging effects.
It is available for Windows and Mac Wineskin. This fractal generator supports color button images on Windows theme. You get grid-options for preview and have more than holons with an option to see selected holons only.
Powerful texture editors for background image, depth-of-field filter, stereo post processing, are few of the animation controls you will love. You can even import, sample and ease up the gradients. Soft shadows, point cloud export, as well as mesh export improvements are available. It offers tools for quickly generating pictures with a wide range of fractals. QFractalNow is Qt library based enabling fractal exploration for picture generation. Advanced algorithms and heuristics help these multi-threaded tools compute fast and they have leading formulas like Julia, Mandelbrot, Rudy etc.
Among 2D fractal generators, Ultra Fractal is unique with thousands of fractal types and coloring algorithms, bit support with superfast deep zooming, application of multiple layers for collating multiple fractals into one image, and gradients for adding color. This is an amazing collection of fractal arts and provides you more information about the top fractal software in the market.
It consists of their tutorials as well as their high and low points for allowing you to know them better. While discussing free fractal generators, Fractal Fr0st should never be ignored. With a brilliant GUI it offers you a lot in fractal art.
