External Thread of a internal thread

Good day,
I have created a thread. Now I want to create the corresponding external thread from it.
However, I would like to create it in another window "Part Studio".

E.g. I made this:

Now I want to create the external Thread (I know how it works with Boolean) in another Window called "Aussengewinde".
Innengewinde = Internal Thread
Aussengewinde = external Thread

How can I import the object but only use it as a reference for the dimensions?

In Freecad it is called "external geometry"

Kind Regards
