    Hi all,

    I'm looking at getting a uni project 3d printed not sure what material yet, and was wondering what materilas (if any) can succesfully hold a screw thread, either

    a self taping screw


    a tapped thread

    both would only be a max of M3

    any advice would be great :)

    Thanks alex

    You can tap a screw into the nylon 'white strong and flexible' but it would of course depend on the stress on the part.

    Stainless steel could be tapped, machined, milled etc etc.

    I found that the white strong and flexible worked quite well. I'm sure the other colours would work well too, but I haven't tested them.
