Need a threaded rod detail that is adjustable. 1/4"-1 1/2" width and whatever length.

I thought that a hatch might work, but didn't have any luck.

 

Thanks

You say "Detail". Are you looking for a 2D detail of a threaded rod? If you have one AutoCAD just import it, explode it and convert everything to your BIM standard linetypes, fonts etc.

 

Or are you asking for a 3D rod that has a 3D thread showing? If so then I would say you should avoid using one as it would be too much 3D detail. Simply model the rod as solid tube extrusion and when you need to see the thread in plan or elevaiton or section, just use 2d lines and masking regions to show the thread on top of the 3d view of the rod.

Thanks for the reply.  I need a 2d component that has an adjustable length. Will what you suggested work for that?

Why not just edit one of the standard detail components to what you need..... Like this bolt detail component:

Because, and correct me if I'm wrong, the threaded part does not adjust.  I want a completely threaded rod that can be whatever length I need.

That is a different question and will take you awhile to learn.  You can create an adjustible family that has an arrayed thread which adjusts with length or maybe a line based nested family.  You can learn some of what you need by reading about line based families and by deconstructing one of the line based families in the downloads.

I'd make the adjusting rod linework in the detail family then insert a nested detail family of just the threads and lock that nested family to the ends on the rod so it just follows the rod length.

 

ie: Nest the threads family into the main family.

My suggestion above would not stretch the the threaded part. Theres a couple ways to make that adjust But I'd create a dynamic array in the nested family with a manually controlled parameter and carry that nested parameter forward to the main family and just adjust the length of the treads manually via that nested parameter.

eh...I got one to *work* it has the adjustable length I wanted but was kicking back errors when I changed the diameter.  I originally made it the Ø I needed so I left it alone and never fixed it, no time. I attached it so if you want to use it as is, or throw some improvements on it, go ahead.
