Support for thread cutting (by Jaap)
Somewere in the reference section there is a line about thread cutting (as in right-hand thread becomes left-hand thread when multiplied with -1).

Now how can I mark a hole as being threaded? Is this possible and did I miss it or am I looking for ghosts..

BTW. I love this way of drawing! Attached my work-peace that is supposed to be threaded M8.

Are you just trying to note in a human-readable fashion that the hole should be threaded, so that you or a machinist knows to tap it? Or do you want threads in the solid model, like so that you could 3d-print them, or otherwise manufacture them from the surfaces in the file? I'm afraid that with SolveSpace's current surface operations, there's no good way to do the latter.
