THANK YOU.

This is perfect. openSCAD was really straight forward to use for my first time. Generated the Tap and Die of many threads so far. Excellent work. Thank you very much!!

hi!
i am not familiar with openSCAD, can you please make a screw with 1/4-40 threads
i need it to print for my rc transmitter Taranis. thank you very much
my mail is [email protected]

Thanks DaveGadgeteer - I modified your source to create a 7/8X14NF - thanks for the good code comments that enabled me to achieve success.

Hi, I stumbled across this while doing a bit of research on pipe threads. I think you might be interested in https://github.com/hyperair/MCAD/blob/master/fasteners/threads.scad, which generates a cross-section of the thread and then linear_extrude's it upwards with a twist. This has the benefit of allowing almost instantaneous high-poly renders ($fn=30 is the default, and can go up to $fn=100 with no problem).

The module I've implemented, trapezoidal_thread(), allows for generating trapezoidal thread forms -- I've implemented the metric, Acme, and buttress thread forms, but am looking for more that I can add to this library.
