show NPT pipe taps as tapered in the machining module

NPT pipe taps should be modeled as tapered in the machining module.  A machinist can look at the drawing and quickly tell that the tap is an NPT pipe thread.  Currently, we use a lisp routing to make the tap. however the threads do not automatically show up in annotation, so we add the threads by hand.  This is a waste of time, but necessary for the correct thread representation.

Greg, not sure if it is the link or my pc, but the link in your comment above returns "An unexpected error has occurred"

This appears to be an issue w/ PTC's communities site - after I click in the link in my comment above, I notice that the address bar in my browser says "communities.ptc.com/ideas/http://communities.ptc.com/ideas/1058"

In order to actually see the page you have to strip out communities.ptc.com/ideas/ from the beginning, and you should be able to get there.
