Toggle calculations for plotting joint planes. This setting controls the calculation of data structures used for plotting joint planes. The data structure takes time to calculate and uses a lot of memory. Eliminating this calculation affects plotting only; it does not affect any mechanical calculations.


Delete existing joint-plane data structures.

tolerance f

Set tolerance for merging nodes. If nodes are closer together than f, they will be merged. The default is 0.1 times the block tolerance (block tolerance).
