I just want to ask if anyone has successfully printed a screw (M3 or M4). Is the printed output usable as a screw? What printer is capable of printing screws? I am using an M3D printer - is there a configuration to successfully print a screw that is usable?
Can anyone share a picture of the best 3D printed screw?
Not very likely unfortunately.
M3D nozzle diameter is too wide to be able to print something that would print reliably, not to mention any FDM machine won't have the precision to build good threads. even 0.05mm layer heights won't run very well.
I've tried on a Form1 (SLA style printer) and even that set at it's max resolution wasn't able to print clean threads.
