MScrew generator

MScrew generator by maximumiq Mar 2, 2013


OpenSCAD program to generate screws following the metric standard. Various screw head types and slots. Real thread. Create threaded nuts also. Can generate screws without thread for modelling.
M2 though M14 can be created. Its really easy to add new screw sizes to the array of existing definitions.

Hey, thanks, will do!

im not sure. it did that on my gs3 case as well

Try the newest file. I've adjusted the thread generator so a screw and a nut fit nicely together.

Use openSCAD to load the codefile. At the bottom of the file the samles as shown here are generated by a single call per item.

Have just updated the library. An error was discovered which made the threads slimmer at the end of the screw.

After succes with the m4's I tried m3's - didn't work on first attempt. The tolerances are very tight, And I added an m4 nut to a project but (metal) but m4's didn't fit it - m3's did. Interesting.

This is the most useful set of models I've seen. Many thanks. Printing an M4 right now.

I successfully printed a quad of M4x8mm's SHCP's which were spaced 20mm apart in a square pattern, on a Replicator2 using fill=100%, shells=1, layer size=0.125. All four successfully threaded into the VESA mount on the back of my HP monitor on the first time and they grab just fine. They'll be used to hold a Raspberry Pi mounting plate. Well done, thank you.
