Help creating threads

hello, I am trying to create BSPP threads, to be exactly G1/2 and G1/4
my issue is that if i create with the exact dimensions i get an error when i do the sweep, I know that I is because it shares one point in each turn of the helix, but I do not understand how can I do it respecting the thread dimensions here is what i am trying to do:

 and here are the dimensions I found for the BSPP threads:

EDIT: i solved by giving the number of turns in the helix and not the pinch of the thread. hope helps someone :)
best regards, franco

    I am not able to access your model.

    as I saw, you solved by yourself, didn’t you?

    more or less, but at least i have found what was the problem in my workflow, it was that I was sweeping a triangle with rounded points so when doing the sweeping i was having a single line shared by the two triangles from different turns.
