Creating threads in sketchup


#1

Hi All,
I’m looking to create a drawing in Sketchup 2016 with the intention of later using it to 3d print.
The piece I need to create will need a thread arrangement, but it will need to be of a large size.
It won’t prove economical to buy a tap to tap out the plastic for a piece that I’m likely to only run 2 or 3 prints of.

Does anyone know how to create threads in sketchup with any degree of accuracy?

Sorry if this has already been covered, but if it has can someone point me to the thread?

See what I did there :rofl:

You can start with these…

There have been a few discussions about this on this forum, specifically as it relates to 3D printing… which should be found easily enough via a forum search.
