Garden Hose

I am trying to design a piece that will go on the end of a garden hose. My piece should have a female garden hose thread, but Inventor 2012 does not appear to have that thread in it. How can I make a custom thread to make this work?

Do you want a physical thread or a cosmetic representation?

I am also having this issue with my part.  I need my piece to attach to a garden hose and cannot find the right thread.  What did you do to fix the problem.

dirk -

 

a hose thread is not an NPT.
I think I would model the thread.

but first

I would start over on your part and do it differently - you are doing wayyyy too much work.
You might start here http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/skillsusa%20university.pdf

your Sketch1 is not constrained.
