I also tried to use threaded fittings. The shape is converted to structure and replicated correctly.
The complicated thing is align the shapes without using Assembly

No way to create a csv file for threaded fittings? Can I join a small piece of tube with an elbow?

TODO+=1 ;)
Anyway there is a lot of work to make for this tool to work without exceptions before... you probably have experienced some errors arising when laying down pipes on complex paths.

In the meantime I suggest to import fittings from external files, because there are moltitudes of them to be coded with a dedicated FeaturePython.

:? That's right... it began like a feature announcement but now it may be continued under another subject.
Let me just end-up this.

Dear All,
Thank You for your support. Your interest in this set of tools, though it's less than one year I'm developing it, is a pleasant surprise.
Unfortunately I'm not going to merge pull requests at the moment because I'm not full familiar with github and I shall know what I'm doing before to do that.
Also for a matter of time I would not be able to review in detail pull requests, so I prefer to collect suggestions and bug reports and introduce them in the code by myself, at least for now. In this regard I still invite you to continue to send any suggestion or to report bugs on the forum (in discussion/development! :D ).
No need to say: let me know also the hacks you'll likely make to that module.

Do you have an account in Patreon? I would like to thank and contribute in the development of this workbench. It's similar (better) to Sketchup 3skeng extension. A good integration with BIM and Arch modules it would be great!

This looks great. I'm a mechanical engineer working to ASME B31.X standards. I always though it woukd be cool to do piping work in FreeCAD.

Thanks for sharing.
