Invalid geometry (?!) when intersecting

So, here's my issue. (Using SW2015)

 

I'm trying to create a thread on a screw with a cut profile. I had to redo do it after realizing that the thread was in the wrong direction. Now when the thread is counterclockwise instead of clockwise it suddenly wants to make my day difficult and make me sad.

 

What I've been trying to do:

- Created a swept boss to get the shape (didn't use swept cut because it was annoying)

- Tried to intersect the swept boss body with the threads... and BAM...

- ... It says that intersecting would create an invalid geometry. FML.

I've attached the part document. I'm very thankful for any kind of help.

 

Have a good one,

 

Estela.
