Designing threads in Fusion360 is very easy until we need only standard single start threads. But if we need some custom threads (custom profile, very big lead, multi start thread etc.), designing is not that simple. This video will explain how to design custom threads using Coil tool. If I have metallic version of designed screw or nut, I will 3D print it and test with that standard version.
