Very true. This is why ThreadMaker Macro includes disabled thread on creation, and a pair of enable/disable thread icons to act on all threads in the document. So you can design without the delay of thread computation, then enable all threads at once just before exporting project to real world. Also, have you looked at the Fastener's Workbench? It has ready-made, standardized nut and bolt objects. It could really speed up your design effort, I think.
May whatever Higher Power you believe in bless the Ukrainians. They are a decent people who never hurt anybody.

Well, this project i think is way too big for modelling threads. I will look into this in my other project though.

So, next update:

- one part in group 02 - connector between frames and support for boiler:
(this part was hard... and still it is in quite simplified form - there should be many fillets added, but model would be too complex to handle assuming that that fillets could be done)
Image
This file is a bit bigger...

Time for next update. Still group 04. With todays update all files from that group are converted, remains few parts newer modeled. I think i rather first convert all old files, then i will start making new ones.

-smoke deflectors on smokebox:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/04/14.20-3-0.fcstd

-cab doors locks:

-left front doors:

http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/04/15.14-0-1.fcstd

-cabs metal walls and roof
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/04/P405-1-0.fcstd

-cabs angles:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/04/P406-1-0.fcstd

-and... bolts and nuts of walking boards and cabs metal floor
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/04/P481-1-0.fcstd
and i dont't even wanna know how big that file would be if i would model all threads...

So next, a bit bigger update. Today group 03 - brakes. This contains all files made so far in this group. Mechanical part is mostly complete, only missing is brake cylinder and support for main lever - for first one i need to find some documentation (it is not included in engine's) for second... it is quite complicated casting. Pneumatic part have 'one' problem - same as cylinder, there is no detailed documentation for typical parts, so i would probably just draw some approximation from general drawings. So:

-position regulators for brake blocks:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/ ... 2-00.fcstd

-brake blocks:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/ ... 1-00.fcstd

-break beams:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/22.23.fcstd

-brake air reservoir:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/22.56-02-1.fcstd

-control air reservoir:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/22.56-03-1.fcstd

-main air reservoirs:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/22.565-3-0.fcstd

-cylinder lever:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P310-1-0.fcstd

-connecting levers:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P314-1-0.fcstd

-equalizing levers:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P318-1-0.fcstd

-brake blocks levers:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P320-1-0.fcstd

-brake beams hangers:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P333-1-0.fcstd

-air pump support:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P346-1-0.fcstd

-brackets for main air reservoirs:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P356-1-0.fcstd

-brackets for brake and control air reservoirs:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/03/P358-1-0.fcstd

And all of above together:
Image

So current status:
00 - general views - nothing to do here...
01 - wheels, axes, boxes, boogies - waiting for conversion
02 - frame and suspension - two parts missing due to problems with recreating them in FC
03 - brakes - all files converted, some parts to be done after revival
04 - cab and walking boards - all files converted, some parts to be done
05 - steam engine - waiting for conversion
06 - boiler and its equipment - all files converted, many parts to be done.
07 - ash pan, jackets - not touched yet
08 - pipes, sanders, lightning - not touched yet
09 - handrails, tools, painting, misc - not touched yet
