Double angle custom thread.

Double Angle threads.pngDouble Angle threads.pngI would like to define some custom threads that have two different angles. not the 60/2 or 29. I need something like 60 on one side of the thread and 30 on the other side of the thread.


I am familiar with the xml editing, but will fusion require special syntax to define two angles?


The obvious choices did not work.

I think you'll have better luck posting this question in the Fusion design forum since this is a question about how a design-related function works.  This forum is specific to the programming interface so someone on the other forum is more likely to know the answer and see your question.

I think it is in the right forum,


Does the application have a way of interpreting XML  to use top angle and bottom angle, rather than a single angle?

Hi @alingreceaEGKV7 .


In the past, I have only tried a little, but I remember that the XML file for custom thread was defined with three settings: "Major diameter", "Pitch diameter", and "Minor diameter".


I used this site. 


I don't think it is possible to create uneven custom thread, probably because of the above reasons.
If you want to create a shape, I think the only way is to create it by sweeping.

I was trying by sweeping but then Is not reusable or repeatable,

I feel autodesk should introduce this functionality that can be done with
xml editing.

Thanks for the response.
