How many people would be interested in Viktor incorporating a screw and nut generator such as Quickbolt built into LWCAD?

I think Viktor's time would be better spent on other features.

Generator as you type in values and it creates mesh or choose several predefined types from presets and clone them on mesh (like widows/doors/fences/shingles... he has now)?

Blender has one in python; that one can be interpolated for LW.

As you type in values it create the mesh, much like Quickbolt.

I don't think this is necessary. You can add them as presets if you want.

Right, a bolt/nut/threading preset library is really all that's needed. I'd much rather Viktor spend his time adding more technically-involved and broad-base-appealing features that ensure LWCAD's continued revenue (and development).

If there's enough interest in a plugin version, it should be fairly direct for a third-party to implement such a plugin (hence Quickbolt, and its fate kind of hints there isn't enough interest).
