# building-blocks set tolerance command

Syntax

building-blocks set tolerance f

Set the tolerance for geometric manipulations. For instance, if the distance between two points is less than f they will be treated as one point (merged). The tolerance value f must be positive. Invoking the command will set off the auto-tolerance flag (see building-blocks set auto-tolerance).

If f is not supplied the default value (average length of all edges × $$10^{-8}$$) is used.
