I needed a few M3*40 screws, but unfortunately it was past 20:00 and the hardware store had closed.

So I thought about making my own screws with the wire printer, which actually is just an advanced spot welder.

The "screws" are made of stainless steel threaded rods and galvanized steel nuts.

In the video I carefully increased the intensity what took a bit longer, because I tried it before with high intensity and it almost instantaneous melted the M3 Nut.

So if you are interested in welding together or heating small metal parts you can use this printer for it.
