The Part Design workbench's Hole feature can now model a true thread. Both metric and UTS thread profiles are available, with detailed options. Very cool!

Beware that this makes the feature heavier and much longer to compute.

@normandc Does it slow down FreeCAD much when panning and stuff? Or just when rebuilding?

Just when rebuilding the Hole feature. Unless you make a whole array of them... FreeCAD's graphics viewport isn't as optimized as the big commercial programs, so very complex geometry (large assemblies for example) will slow rotating and panning the view down.

Is not that useful most of the time, but man, that threads are beautiful. Nice feature!
