    Bottle Design - Neck Threads and matching Cap Threads - correct approach

    Lenny Dichiara

      Good Evening -
      I was wondering if anyone had any resources or tutorials on the best approach to model a bottle neck finish (thread details) along with the corresponding threads that would go on the matching cap design.



      I know how to design threads - but I would like to get more familiar with the proper approach to model corresponding caps that would properly fit and screw onto my bottles. I know that some of these profiles and information can be found in machinist handbooks; I am looking for guidance on best practice as well as how to build in proper thread tolerances, etc...


      Any help or resource material would be greatly appreciated.
