    Taper Lock thread

    I believe it's a C.A.T. design the studs have a taper at the end to seat into the bottom of the thread can't find much info on the web about it. We are still waiting on final prints to better define the internal thread

    create a surface from the solid, offset the edge curves and trim the surface where you want it and create new edge curves then use the standard tool settings in morph . Dont always try and use the solid as a drive that will get you in trouble almost every time
