How to add tolerance to a thread?

lid - back is expected to be screwed into body. I created the connection by
  • creating an in-thread to main
  • substracting main from lid - back
This is great - I now have thread matching exactly.

This "exactly" is my problem: I will need some tolerance for imperfections when I print the parts, so I would like to add a tiny gap between the threads. Is there a way to do that?

    Use the "offset" option in the boolean.
