    I have a design and need printed threds on both the male and the female part. Size of the thread is 2.00 in in Dia. What would be a sutable thread for this? I was thinking of a very course one. Does anyone have any experance with this or any insight.

    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.

    I printed this one recently in WSF - worked great.
