Interference analysis (by yugami)
I'm wondering how the interference analysis works. I'm working on an assembly with some tight sliding fits and I'm getting a whole lot or Red when trying to use this.

I'm still working on my final sizes so right now I've given them 0.001 gap which seems to trigger interference alarms.

Just to add, one area has 0.003 slop and it is still triggering while another area I bumped to 0.002 and its currently fine.

Everything is constrained along a construction line using center points so I don't think its how they're facing each other.

It works using the same surface intersection code as for the Booleans, and shares their same limitations. Specifically, coincident planes work, but coincident curved surfaces generally don't, and must be moved apart by a distance on the order of the chord tolerance to work reliably. Within the problem zone, the operation may appear to succeed or fail randomly, depending how the boundaries of the two curves get piecewise linearized.

OK Thanks, I was trying to use it to test minimum distances and tweak my assumptions but I think I'm good enough using the tranclucent tweak added to the other repository a while back.
