A short tutorial on how I designed a simple threaded container with Autodesk Fusion 360.

The container dimensions used in this model were for a specific application requiring the use of M55x4 threads. However, I've included Autodesk Fusion 360 .F3D file "Container, Threaded v2.f3d" and in conjunction with the video, the dimensions and thread sizes may be altered to suit your own requirements.

And if you simply want to print the container and lid, I've include the files "Container.stl" and "Lid.stl".

As usual, I probably forgot a file or two or who knows what else, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask as I do make plenty of mistakes.

Designed using Autodesk Fusion 360, sliced using Cura 4.1, and printed in PLA on both an Ultimaker 2+ Extended and an Ultimaker 3 Extended.

How did you determine the separation (spacial tolerance) needed so the lid screws on easily?

Trial and error, best guess, rule of thumb? Measuring the model it appears there is a separation of 0.382 mm on both sides (0.764 mm total)
