Helical thread

Hello there...

 

I have used helices with variable pitch and diameter for some time, but I am often discouraged by the drain it seems to put on resources.  In this example, I am cutting a thread form into a bolt blank.  It does work, but sometimes I will select something that I think is quite innocent and then have to go get a soda while I wait for the model to sort itself out. 

 

So, this is a bit of an open ended question...does anyone have any tips or alternatives to make this feature 'lighter'.  If the answer is, "don't try to make threads" I've already considered that and generally don't.

 

Thanks very much...
