### steep thread how to create?

a screw for medical issue has to be designed. The thread is not like a M...something.

Using the helix with sweep a thread is designed, but the angle of the shoulder has 13°, should be 22°.

Cannot find a parameter or workaround to create this thread.

Any ideas?

thank´s a lot

### Re: steep thread how to create?

M ... is not only used for a "normal" thread but also in all cases where the principle is respected: nominal diameter of the "rod" of the screw and external thread at this diameter
If you must have a precise thread profile you must orient the "normal" profile to the helix
To find this angle: either you use your maths knowledge with sine and cosine,
either like me more laughable, you make a small right triangle one side = pi X D other side = pitch and measure the angle

Create a single thread with pitch = distance between 1 and 3 thread teeth and then polar patter that with 2 occurrences.

### Re: steep thread how to create?

thank you for the tips.

I have to be more exact what the target to achieve.

its not a double thread. One is Freecad, the other is a picture.

Using the helix parameters pitch 1,7 height 19 and radius 1,75 the angle becomes 13°.

question is how to reach another angle, for example 23° with the same pitch of 1,7 mm

May be what I want is wrong? but it is existing.

You may calculate such values as papyblaise suggested or you use Sketcher to perform the calculations. You have it already in your screenshots. Add appropriate construction lines and measure them with a so called driven dimension (they come in blue).

Here is an example. Note the red surface and how this looks as two independent threads?

Hi, the angle of 13 degrees is in my design defined in sketch001

### Re: steep thread how to create?

Hello again,

thanks a lot for all these tips.

kisolre: this is a very interesting solution, two starts and double lead. I am not sure to use it in bones because the self-friction is smaller as in single threads.

Willem: yes, the 13° are not needed in the geometrie of the thread. The helix shoud be stronger. It has 13° and should have 23° or something else.

chrisb: I understood papyblaise, but I am not able to reach 23° in the helix like the screenshot,

maybe I am now in a tunnel and its time to have a break.

self-retention not self-friction, sorry

We dont know what you want to achieve in the end. I assumed you want to recreate the thread in the background image and what I proposed is one way to do so. If this is not the case please rephrase the question and give some extra info.
