A VERY cool script by Denis... I guess the icing on the cake would being able to create end pieces to the threads as well (and of course screw heads, but they're easy enough to do). It looks like the ends could be created by slicing the end, capping it, spherizing the cap face (to make it a perfect circle), centering it to the axis of the screw (ideally with a soft selection of make the transition smoother) and finally extruding/beveling it. I have no idea though how that would be scripted

that's easy. we can add another CurveControl to control Outer Radius by height and instead of using Inner Radius use Thread ... let's call it ... Depth. so the inner radius will be Outer Radius - Thread Depth.
