Machinery's Handbook is a great resource for thread forms. At the 2-inch size you have a wide range of choices: Vee thread (common bolts use this type), Square thread, Acme thread, Stub Acme thread, Buttress thread, Hose coupling thread, and Pipe thread - both straight and tapered.

Seeing as how you're printing this, you could also make your own thread form - even something impossible to make with conventional methods.


Creativity - sometimes by the brute force method.
