I am modeling a series of bottles with threaded necks and I need to create corresponding Cap designs.
I was wondering if anyone had any tutorials or sample files they might be able to share; I have done these
types of designs several times before but on this occasion have had some issues with the 3D printed parts
not aligning properly; Im not sure if my tolerances are too small and causing part interference or if my approach
should be a bit different.
I have the bottle design as a dumb solid and when creating the cap I am using the thread data from the bottle (with a surface offset)
to create the cap threads. I took this approach as I don't have the pitch or thread information from the bottle so I wanted to see
if anyone had any experience with this type of application.
Thank you -
