Tapered thread in Fusion360


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Tapered thread in Fusion360

I want to print a collar with a thread that follows through the chamfer as below. If I cut the thread and the add the chamfer I get the required end result.


This is fine but I would like to add the chamfer first (so that I can use the chamfer as a cutting tool for the nut) and then add the thread. However, when I do it in the order of chamfer then thread I get this


Note, the thread stops at the top of the chamfer which means the nut won't go on.

Is there a way to get to what I want by adding the thread after the chamfer?

    Hi clinton,


    This is a right triangle that's rotated 360 deg around the coiled rods "center axe" forming a cone.

    It can cut material outside or inside.

    (Find some tutorials about this issue in the help section.)
