Continuing the discussion from Screw like or threaded part:
I am new to this forum, this being my first appearance as a Shapr3D user.
The video shows the making of a non tapered thread.
It lacks the possibility to accurately set the defined number of threads per inch (TPI) making the tread more for show.
I have tried more or less successfully to produce an inner thread 1/2”.
A 1/2” thread has 13 or 14 treads an inch normally depending on the kind of thread used. I used the following numbers to get to my result,
Angle 4680, height 25.4.
The NPT, tapered thread is a feature I would suggest to implement.
But taking in to consideration that Shapr3D is not a full featured CAD program, I’ll take what is available as features.
Added the final result,
Thank you, Carel.
