New FeatureScript: Cosmetic Threads

Hello Everyone,

I'm releasing my first FeatureScript!

Now you can create Cosmetic Threads in Part Studios:

These threads are two helix edges which were created with sweep and split commands. 

  • Specify the pitch and the direction of the thread!
  • Shows in Part-Studios, Assembly and Drawing Tab!
  • Much faster than a real 3D thread!
  • You can set a custom name for the thread (for example: "M12x1.75 - 6g")
  • Change pitch, direction and thread name with configurations!
Some limitations:
Only works with cylinders and cones!
The ends of the selected surfaces have to be circles!

Here is the link:
