Fully working printable M8 hex nuts with standard dimensions. They are derived from the wonderful ISO Metric thread library by Trevor Moseley.

The printable nuts are not only functional and cool. They can also be taken off very easily from the heatbed using a Wrench!! :-D

The hex nut and washer with standard dimensiones are the files: Hex_nut_M8.stl and washer_M8.stl.
But these parts are also parametric (designed with OpenScad), so that the user can easily change the height and outer diameters. I have created some STLs as an example:
- Hex_nut_M8_higher.stl : An M8 hex nut 13mm in height
- Hex_nut_M8_wider.slt : An M8 hex nut with an outer diameter of 20mm
- washer_M8_extra.slt: A M8 washer with an outer diameter of 20mm
