|Summary||0001181: Adding an option to fill a the surface with image or other methods to show a thread-like shape|
|Description||I saw in other applications that it's common to fill the surface with an image that looks like a thread on parts.|
That simplifies the object since there will be much less details than modeling the threads on a bolt or nut.
Other ideas to use an image on a part is to apply a material on it.
I think I saw somewhere that material is one of the big features for FreeCad, so I'm sure there will be much more work done in that direction, but the threading appearance is not related to that, so I hope you could add at least that property to the part designer.

||Do you talk about texture mapping?|
Yes, I think that's how it's called.
But I'm talking about one specific case for the threading and not every possible image to be used as a texture.
||This could be useful for knurling as well.|
There is a need to mark holes or bolts, which have a thread, in some way. Because if we want to have a drawing of a part with a thread, we also want the thread shown on the drawing with its characteristic drawing style.
This method is named "cosmetic thread" in solidworks. It is shown for example at this page: http://help.solidworks.com/2013/English/SolidWorks/sldworks/c_cosmetic_threads.htm
I think there should also a way to have this in a step file, but I could not find any useful information.
