Thread Tool

Please follow the format below for requesting a feature.

The problem that this feature will solve:

A quick and easy tool for threads

Brief description of the outcomes that you expect from this feature:

I would expect this feature to allow for a hole to be quickly threaded with just a few taps and specs provided

What can’t you achieve without this feature?

Currently the only way to create threads would be to import a thread negative and use the subtract tool, or even more cumbersome, to use the helix tool which is an unnecessary complication to something that should be as simple as adding threads to a hole in a body. I would like the ability to tap on a given hole, select the threads I would use such as m6 or 1/4-20 and have threads generated.

Is this a workflow blocker for you? Is this why you can’t use Shapr3D for work? Is this slowing you down?

This is a feature inventor has and it would be a welcome feature to Shapr3Ds friendly UI

+1 as well, having a simple way to generate threads (maybe free form generator and from DIN/ISO selection) for 3d printed part that should fit together or threads for metal screws/metal inserts would be hugely appreciated! :+1:
