Cura isnt printing screw threads

Posted · Cura isnt printing screw threads

I am printing some pieces for a school project in inventor, for some reason the screw thread isnt printing of the model, Instead its prinintg a circle. When i save the ipt file and change it into stl, the model in cura doesnt show the screw thread anymore. I made the screw thread with the hole tool in inventor. What do i do?

    Hey there.

    It doesn't look like it has modeled the screw in inventor and it's only showing an indicator that it's a threaded hole. 

    You may need to get the thread modeller add in for inventor so it actually creates a threaded model.
