Creating Threads in Rhino

Hi All,

I wanted to mate two objects together via a screw mechanism. I’m not sure how to do this through Rhino though. The object in question is a cup I am making and a saucer/bottom portion that screws onto the cup.

Any help would be awesome.

you can use the plugin boltgen for that

my favorite way to make threads is to go to macmaster-carr and find the bolt or nut you want to use for threads, go the the part, and click the info, then go to the 3d part and go to the product detail, you can download the part and then just use it as a boolean- works amazing ans way faster than building them…
