Helicoil representation in 3D model

Re: Helicoil representation in 3D model

Hi Paul,

I created these hole charts long time ago. I cannot remember where I crab the diameter 7.3 from. You are right. It seems like this diameter might not be correct.

I think this diameter depends on a lot of different things.

  • The material
  • The helicoil tool
  • The length of the insert

I recommend to contact the producer of the inserts to get the correct values.

Of course you can modify the hole chart I have uploaded to your needs. This should only be a example on how we use the inserts in our tool.

Re: Helicoil representation in 3D model

Could have come from another standard but ASME B18.29.2M list the minimum major diameter for STI threaded hole data for a M6x1 insert as 7.300.

Re: Helicoil representation in 3D model

Hi Kevin,

this might be possible. I have double checked this.

In the Machinery Handbock the "Min. Major Diam./All Classes" is "7.300".

I think I have taken the value from there.

Thanks.

OK, makes sense; thank you for the explanation.

Oliver,

Heavy duty offering. Thanks! Sorry I got pulled away from this stuff.

I am looking thru all your information.

Is IFX on standard loads? I'm wondering if we have the ability to use it.

Hi Wayne,

a free version of IFX is shipped with Creo since version 3.0.

This document shows the difference between the free and the paid version:

IFX License comparison


The inserts stuff cannot be used with the free version. But if you want I can send you a demo version for IFX so you can test the functionality.
