Problem with threads

After watching the tutorial on threads, I created a test M20 threaded cylinder 20mm tall, along with the corresponding nut, and it worked great.  When I size it up being 200mm tall, I can only apply the offset to one face of the thread.  When I try and apply the offset to the other face, I get an error message that says "The operation does not cause a meaningful shape change. Try adjusting the values or changing the input geometry."

For my printer, I found a -0.2mm offset worked best, but I get the same error when I try -0.1mm.

I'm stumped.

Access to Academy Members area?

I have a PDO Academy account.  How do I get access to that section of the community?
