What kind of Screws are use?

Hi
Sorry for the stupid Question I never build anything and I need some Screws, Nuts and Bolts. I want buy the same as the Printer use since the are nice and working good. But what are the "Buzz Word" to find them in a Local Shop?
Thanks

The easy way is to take some with you and ask them to match your samples.   They are 'M' metric sizes, eg M3x20 = 3 mm by 20mm and are available with a wide range of heads and materials.

Cheerio,

For example my USB Hub have screwholes for USB Cable to screw in. Sadly the Company dont provide then with USB-A to USB-B so why not Print some sleve and screw the sleve in. The Screws I have for spare work to screw in. So that mean I need more M2? M3? ... Screws?!

I dont know what the Printer use for size sine the fit...

Can someone recommend a Video who explane an noob how to design something from scratch in Blender?
For the start I would like make an Custom Adapter for my (upcomming) Fans to my Pc. The Pc use a small 50x50 I guess and I will use 2x silent 80x80 for. Maybe make an Round Adapter to put an "old" Airfilter on Top who I blow clean with compressed Air so its quite ok for that useage.

You did not even write what printer you have. 😑

For technical construction CAD software (like Fusion360) is better suited than modelling software like Blender.

Fusion does contain CAD/E-CAD/CAM and modelling, Blender does contain modelling, sculpting, posing and animation.

Here is a good tutorial series for Blender. And here is a quick intro to Fusion.

I don't know if this is the current state, but roughly it should be correct:

And Fusion360 is free for personal and educational use. There is also FreeCAD and other free CAD programs.

Plain old generic metric hex screws and nuts.

If you're in the States, few hardware stores stock a wide variety of these in the smaller (as in m3) sizes, but Amazon and the other usual suspect dealers will have low-cost assortments of metric fasteners.

Minor correction to my previous post: The picture shows an external hexagon head screw (DIN933), but only internal hexagon head screws (DIN912) are used.
