1/4'' UNC
one is 3mm unthreaded then 6mm threaded
the other is 25mm threaded

I made a test-print with a crazy outer layer height of 25 micron -yes- 0.025mm. The print worked but there was some waving reducing resolution and making the surface rough. Nevertheless it turned out very usable and especially sturdy against breakage through sideward bending.


Use the ancestor thing to generate alternate versions.

The commands to generate this two screws where:
hex_screw(25.41/4,25.4/20,30, 25,0.5,2,25.47/16-0.15,4,3, -1);
hex_screw(25.41/4,25.4/20,30, 6,0.5,2,25.47/16-0.15,4,0, 0);

So I'm guessing this is the standard size fitting for SLR Camera's? As in the same as a tripod..

Correct. There are also 3/8'' screws for really really big cameras but 1/4'' is the most common size.

its just when i printed this. it was absolutely tiny. as in less then 10mm entirely.

The threads outer diameter is 1/4'' = 6.35mm

okay yes. i was just confused as my Rep2 isn't printing them right and keeps failing just before the thread and therefor it seems too small. Great work btw, sorry to waste your time complaining :P

The small one should be 4+3+6 = 13mm tall.
And the head 7/16'' = 10.98125 mm side to side.

so its not a 1/4" at all? but they are all the same size..
