3D printed threads in Nylon 12
August 13, 2020 12:34AM
I'm getting a few parts printed (SLA) for a pick and place machine in Nylon 12 (PA 2200) and I was hoping someone can tell me if printed threads are a viable option. Thread size is mostly M3 with the exception of M4 and M5 in a few places. I specifically want to know if the threads hold good over time and since this is a machine, there'll be plenty of vibrations and transient mechanical stresses though not on the threads directly. Load on the parts being held with the threads is also not a lot. Just a few NEMA 8 motors and a tiny camera. Any insight would be appreciated!
