[WANT] We recently merged an experimental feature for thread milling. I've never done thread milling in my shop and don't have the mills so I can't test this feature. If someone has thread mills in a range of sizes either to donate or to test the feature, please let me know.
+1 I would love this feature. I have thread mills and will give it a go when I have time.

@sliptonic I'm running the latest git version of FC. I see the toolbit but do not see the operation. I didn't see anything in the wiki on this feature either. Can you point me to a doc so I can test this?

I have split this from https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 85#p458279 . Feel free to rename the topic by editing the subject of the first post.
Of course you are very welcome to post to the other topic if you can offer a machine to sliptonic :mrgreen: .

This is an experimental feature so you have to have those enabled
