I wanted to have an accurate 3D model of the Taig MicroMill DSLS 3000 X-Nut but the versions
I found on the web lacked resolution and I could not trust them so I disassembled the machine
and carefully measured the different features of the X-nut.
The nut is manufactured to inch measurements but I prefer to work in millimeters so the CAD model is in mm. Actually, I carefully measured the nut in inches and then, if applicable, I rounded the dimensions to the nominal inch values.
In all cases the rounding was only a couple of thousands of an inch. For example 0.802" was rounded to 0.800" and 0.626" was rounded to 0.625"= 5/8". The rounded numbers were then converted to metric and used for the model.
The thread is 1/2"-20 regular right hand, and the little preload screws are 4-40.
As time or requirement arise I will add more parts to this area of the website.
The X-Nut is saved in three formats:
Solid Edge: .par
The files can be downloaded here in all three formats.
FTP site: Vinland.com
Pass Word: Public
File name: Taig_X_Nut.zip
I believe the part is accurate but no guarantees or liability accepted for usage of the information.
