A heat-set threaded insert has two important features. The inside of the brass piece of hardware has a nice, threaded thru the hole.
The exterior has ridges, so when installed using heat, the plastic can easily flow around and then solidify. Once solidified, the insert is in place, making it resist torque and pull-out.

Use the soldering iron on a low setting to preheat the threaded insert using a shallow tapered soldering iron tip.
The Brass Heat Set Threaded Round Insert Nuts is used every day for assemblies and components that need to be joined together. When fasteners are used in traditional manufacturing, bolts are often tapped straight into the metal substrates.
3D printed parts are unique from a material and robustness standpoint, therefore threaded holes can wear easily if the fasteners are taken on and off multiple times. Brass heat nut inserts are your method for success for these types of assemblies.
The Brass heat Nut has been designed for post-mould installation into notch-sensitive thermoplastics using heat. It features very high pull-out and torque resistance.
