Title: Allthread Script
Post by: NickE on October 18, 2014, 11:56:54 pm
Attached is a parametric script to generate allthread.  The thread profile is based on the ISO Metric Thread Standard.  You can edit the script to give other thread profiles.

Enjoy.

Just a note NickE: cannot get it to run in 0.98 unexpected Token, However it runs in Latest build 1115!

So assume it written for later builds, when I try to add a head to the thread unable to merge faces, but this may be a bug in the 1115 build.#

Great script though been waiting for something like this for ages, been using the spring script to create threads for some time now

Kreator,

I have attached an updated version to support v98.  I forgot about the "//' comments only being added in the latest builds.

As far as merging faces: it will work (even in build 1115) if you are careful about not selecting the very thin faces on the underside of the top.

What kind of head are you wanting to add?  I actually made this script from paring down another script that makes standard ISO metric socket cap screws and accompanying nut.  Is there types of screws you would like to see?
