I - Parts

I am having a problem with my I - Parts
when I want to turn the shaft in to a smaller shaft through the use of I-Parts I am getting an error with the thread being the wrong size. I don't know if I will need to do anything with the parameters of the model for this to work right without the error appearing any help would be very much appreciated. I have added a few screen shots on the model and the problem when it occurs. Thank you in advance for any help with this matter.

Hey Will!

The problem with this is that the thread feature only works when the thread designation matches de the diameter of the cylinder. When you change the diameter with the ipart, the thread feature doesn't update automatically... It doesn't even update when you change the diameter manually by editing the sketch...

I think you found a loophole in the system hahaha...

HOWEVERRRRRR!!! I think I found a way to get around it. It´s using the Suppress/compute option within the ipart table. I'll upload the file so you can check it out and reverse engineer it. (It's a simple cylinder with 3 different diameter options)

Let me know if you have any questions... hope it helps

Cheers friend!!
