Creating Machine threads in a part

Recommended Posts

I am using a Tazbot5 printer (sorry that I didn't know of your Ultimaker system) and want to create a threaded part that also has overhangs. What is the best settings to get fine threads and still allow for good quality on my overhangs? What nozzle size would be best? Speed, temps??

I am using HIPS material but could change to a ABS.

My nozzle is a .5mm using 2.85 filament. 5a33204c9d11a_ThreadedPart1.jpeg.8aab055aef6e1ad3beae33dae06ddde3.jpeg

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
