DO:4.6 NUMERICAL ACCURACY

 

• Many CAD systems experience numerical problems based upon the nature of floating point arithmetic.

 

• This can result in points, and surfaces being distorted, and this may cause errors during comparison.

 

• To overcome the problem, most systems will allow a “point tolerance” value to be used to numerically compare, and join separated point.
