Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

Putting the 2 parts together in Simplify 3D even show they now fit, so got it right this time around.

Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

Setting on Screw Tap is not possible, as you say they have different threads, but what is missing from the Fastner collection is a threaded rod, which can be gotten, as i did, through cutting top and bottom off a bolt. Sadly not all bolts can do M42, and some are even missing some of the ScrewTap si...

Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

When using the 3D printed mode, this "screw tap" is getting wider, creating the necessary space tolerance similar to nuts. It can have arbitrary length. shai First, Fantast...

Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

Look at the settings of fasteners, you have two settings for inner and outer threads. If you want to cut a thread yourself you first have to create a tool with the counterpart. Where do i find out how to do a tool with a counterpart? I have this exact problem, i've wasted 2 parts printed twice, wit...
