Thanks ultiarjan, nice nozzle box :-)
I remember Fusion before it became 360, now I can't see that there is a free version anymore? Are you running it as a trial or student... or have a link to the free version? .... or would it be possible to make me the M12 1.5 thread ;-)
Free for students, enthusiasts, hobbyists, and startups
Full use of Fusion 360 for as long as you need it
Start by downloading the 30-day trial
Once you’re in, simply register for free use
Fusion 360 is free for us Hobbyist Makers. See here:
Scroll about halfway down the page where it says "Free for students, enthusiasts, hobbyists, and startups" (right hand side)
You download the demo, then create an an account and register for the free subscription. Initially its good for one year and will get extended (unless Autodesk changes their minds later down the road)
EDIT: Lol, I am way too slow ;-)Edited by Guest
I tried printing a few threads before, but they didn't work well, and I had to cut them anyway afterwards. So now I just design round holes and cut threads afterwards. You sometimes find complete thread cutting sets for 20 euro in the Aldi (in Europe).
Just be very carefull when cutting threads in PLA: it heats up so fast that the model deforms and the thread gets liquid. So that would be another option to make a thread: take an M12 inbus screw and force it into the opening, so it *melts* the material into shape.
You can use the free autodesk fusion 360.... it has thread creation.
