A few improvements I think would be useful for the Thread Mill definition:
1) Taper option. This is paramount for an accurate simulation of NPT pipe threads, which we only thread mill and do not tap.
2) Neck diameter. I think being able to define the neck diameter of the threadmill for single-point models to guarantee that shank clearance is checked for collisions accurately would be most valuable. Adding a Shaft section does not appear to work properly in this instance (in HSMWorks, although it appears to work in Fusion 360 by overriding the Shaft diameter, also a problem):
