This is a HUGE feature for people who do 3D printing.

It always used to be that actually modeling threads (in lieu of using cosmetic threads) was a waste of resources. Took too long, added extra surfaces with little value add to the model.

But if you're printing? Those extra surfaces have a value add, since you can directly print the thread. To be able to do that in a feature that's as simple as the cosmetic thread tool is a very nice enhancement.
