Anybody get this plugin to work with 2013?  I keep getting the dialog saying: Failed to create CoilFeature... Try with a bigger Pitch Offset value. 

 

I have tried the suggestion but it still does not work for me.

 

Thanks,

Tried it on a 1/4" bolt and it works so not sure what parameters keep it from working on random threaded features.

I just got it to work with a #4 screw. Are you picking the thread feature in the browser?

The app may not run on sheet metal parts.  I was experimenting on a  sheet metal part and decided to convert to standard part and now it works.

I see why. It converts it to a multibody solid. I knew I had run into it before. You can work around it but it's a pain.
