    Make female port for NPT thread

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to make the two ports on the left of the top face of this device:

      fit this part:

      It is a plastic tubing fitting that ends in a male NPT threaded pipe. These are the dimensions:Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 7.08.49 PM.png

       

      So there are some videos on YouTube on how to make internal NPT thread, but I do not really have experience with this industry. I can find information like this:Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 7.14.07 PM.png

      But I am unclear on certain aspects of how I would design a female end for this. What diameter should the cylindrical female end be? How deep does the thread go in the radial direction? It seems that all of these specs means something too specific for me to guess. Could anyone give me a walk-through on how to do this?
