Printing threads with Cura and Inventor

Recommended Posts

Hi. We seem to have found the cause of the problem. In Inventor it will model a thread really easily in a 3D design but when you output it it does not work. You have to go back to the old long way of drawing a spiral along with the shape of the thread and combine the two to form a 3D thread. It quick way of doing it is just for design purposes. It will show up on designs and drawings but does not print out as a thread. This is a real shame as this was the main reason we chose to use Inventor as it was simpler for kids at the school to use. Seems there is not an easy answer.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
