I’m making a model in parts that is assembled. I want to use screw in parts for better reliability. Making the screw is easy enough from the Shapr3D tutorials. What I need advice on is the marching nut part.
I took the screw I made and did a Transform / Subtract to get the nut to match the screw. Seems like a good way to do this. When printed it’s really too tight of a fit to be useful. My question is what is the best way to get a matching nut to my custom screws so they are not super hard to put together?
I thought about doing the Subtraction method to get my exact nut again but then expanding the nut on the X and Y by .2 mm. But I thought I’d ask in case I’m missing a better way to do this.
