I'm extremely new to 3D modelling and 3D printing.

I created a model in Alibre Design, which includes a number of threaded holes. In Alibre's documentation it says that while you don't see the threading on the render, it's included in the design data.

I exported from Alibre to an .stl file and uploaded to shapeways. The shapeways preview likewise shows smooth holes, not threaded holes. If I order a piece, will my holes be threaded or not?

Thanks
Tom
