I would like to 3D print something that fits into this threading:

pipe

For that I would need the exact measurements of that thread, but without knowing what the standard is called it's hard to look them up.

Edit: As requested in the comments, I have measured the pitch, it is about 2.3 mm.

    Then you also need to measure the pitch ie how far from 1 thread to the next...

    @SolarMike I could probably manage that, but is it really necessary? If I go to the PVC pipe fittings aisle in the hardware store they only have one pitch and it always fits.

  • Is it metric or NPS (national pipe thread) ? It could be 2" NPS. "Taper" is another critical dimension. I believe NPS is in ASTM A450 also in ANSI but I don'e know the section. An EU document would be needed for metric. Mar 28 '20 at 20:15
