I have a lot of machines screws I need to sort and couldn't find a Gauge that was a good price and did what i wanted. So I designed this and ordered a bunch of screws/nuts.
So far I have only designed Metric M1-3 but I want to eventually do 4-8 as well as an imperial version. Also I am only accounting for 1 thread type, I eventually might just print two (fine/course) but in my practice most just use the common course thread anyways.
Here is the design on Fusion 360 if you want to add more nuts/sizes before I do:
If you do, please share.
I use 4 walls for some extra strength.
I set a filament pause after the last surface layer of text and switch to a lighter colour to make the text nice and readable.
I found the screws and nuts fit fairly snug from the few I have to test at the moment. If two tight a bit of heat will coax them into a nice solid fit.
