Nut and bolt.skp (221.0 KB)
Hello justcheckinm8, I have followed the instructions in your video and made my screw. Thank you. I then used the TRIM tool to make the corresponding nut. First I insert just the flat head of the screw, at its widest point, in the top of the solid that I am using to make the nut. I then use the TRIM tool to make that first impression. Then I insert just enough of the screw so the flat head of screw emerges out the other end, up to its widest point. I again use the TRIM tool to complete the threaded nut. I went through this process to ensure that entry point of the nut would be wide enough for the screw. (see attachment). My question now is, how do I ensure that the screw will actually work with the nut before doing an actual 3D printout? I am using SU2018
Thanks to you all on this support channel, for the work that you do.
