I assumed that he would ignore VCarve's calculation of thread depth and choose the correct value. Note that VCarve is extremely limited in calculating the depth of even metric threads. The last I checked it doesn't provide for M12-1.50, M12-1.75 and M12-1.25, for example. Choices are even more limited for imperial threads.
I hadn't actually thought about the depth of thread so shows just how long it's been since I have actually cut any other than by using the thread tool in the software & since I am cutting both male & female in wood then it hasn't mattered, cut enough of them on a lathe over the years when in the RN :lol: :lol:

As for thinking TATH would ignore the vcarve calculations I doubt that would have happened, he said somewhere in the post that he was a new user & looking for help so what is obvious to you is probably not so obvious to him :lol: :lol: :lol:
Sure he would have come back & asked why his threads weren't mating up properly thouigh
