Hi guys, I'm trying to create a nut to be printed with 3D printer.
My nut is 5/8" - 11 - UNC.
I followed some videos found on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEFf1niKHEA (there were some missing features I supposed I had to seitch to Sketchup-Pro, but onse done many features were still missing, I don't know if just missing plugins or else...).
I create some helix (using arc or curve maker plugin), then I draw central cylinder, then I lift it up until top.
Then I select helix and I explode helix.
Result is this:
I set circle to 64 segments because sometimes circle and curve (for helix) having same diameter, but in fact after rotation helix is bigger than cylinder.....
