It will be great if you include English instruction in pictures. Looks like something important but I cannot translate it :)

Nice object... but... There is a bit of a problem.
The way you designed the threads is a bit of an issue. Instead of the thread coming out of the outer wall of the cylinder diagonally, there is a channel behind the diagonal and a small space to the wall which causes issues with the extrusions leaving unsupported threads. If you could remove these completely unnecessary channels behind diagonals of the threads, both the lower half AND the upper, then the cylinders would print a HECKALOT cleaner and without any supports needed at all. As it is it causes crashes using Cura on an Ender 3. Simplify 3D can handle it without the nozzle crashes on the same printer, but not Cura. Either way the thing would print a LOT cleaner if the threads are fixed.

Hello, Andy,
thank you very much for your constructive criticism! :-)
To be honest, I also noticed this problem, but when my slicer (Slic3r_Prusa) processed everything without any error, and my printer (AM8) printed it well, I ingorated it.
I solved the problem today and tested the thread with a test print.
Best regards, hardy
