|Pendant w/ Thread - Need Help [message #46943] Fri, 13 April 2012 14:24 UTC
What im doing:
So I am designing a pendant to give to my girl friend. It will be the first thing I print on shapeways. The idea is the pendant will hold a message on a piece of paper wrapped around a pin inside. The pendant will be two parts and made of sterling silver. My CAD skills are more then adequate to produce the pendant, Im using solidworks.
Im not sure what specs I should give the screw thread. So i wanted anyone's advice on the pitch, clearance and size of the thread. The nominal diameter is 4mm. The pendant is pictured both with a cross section and with out. I have read the material data sheet, but the minimum detail of 0.6mm isn't as much clarification as i would like.
Any help or feedback would be appreciated as im looking forward to doing more projects through shapeways.
