I made (in Blender) these bolts as gadgets to be shared during a meeting.

I gave each printed bolt screwed into a real (commercial) metal nut, perfectly mating each other.

More info here: http://bit.ly/XEztcr

The full video of the speech (in italian) is also here:

The part of the video that shows my Huxley printing two bolts:

Printed in Silver PLA - nice! - from Reprapworld using my ReprapPro Huxley.

UPDATE (2013/08/01): Actually the printed bolts are M10x16. I forgot I reduced the dimension to speed up printing. So I uploaded also the M10x16 file.

UPDATE (2013/05/05): M10 nut added.
UPDATE (2013/05/05): Nut's hexagon dimensions updated (Thanks to Balthazar)

screw ok,, but nuts thread depth and thread minor diameter are not enough ,,i used M10 tap for nut

I would like to be able to modify the bolt. I am not changing any of the standard specs. I need an M10 bolt with a drain hole. So a hole up the axis, and a second hole to drain at a lower level, so thru the flats. Unfortunately after converting your bolt into a solid, it will not allow me to make any mods ? I am using FreeCAD, any advice ?

I'm not high-skilled at FreeCAD, but I think that you can work with meshes (adding the hole, as a shape, then converting it to mesh and using Meshes/Boolean to cut the hole from the bolt.

i get problem with thread of bolt as you can see i meed one

I answered there.
Really I don't know what happened in your print...

Did you ever see such a big nut and bolt?
It happened at MakerFaire Rome 2014! http://bit.ly/1yED9Ol

Realize one and am very well! excellent! its very strong.

This would be good where metal screws could cause electrical shorts.

What settings did you print with if you don't mind sharing?
I'm not sure if you said it in the video but I don't speak Italian lol

This is my Slic3r settings:

wow... i wonder if i can print #10 threads... that would make my assemblies so much simpler...
