Number of sides in a circle. (by Erik)
Hi,

I have recently discovered this very nice software and I am trying using it.
There is a fundamental think I did not understand: when I draw a circle, how can I define the number of sides that SolveSpace use to represent it? For instance I noticed that if I draw a small circle inside a big rectangle, the small circle is rendered in polygon having a few (about 20?) number of sides.

Is it possible to change the number of sides?

Best regards,

Erik

In the properties window, at the bottom there is a configuration option, and in that there is a chord tolerance that can be changed.

Great,

I found it! It was not clear to that the option appears when the circle is NOT selected (I have to select nothing in my drawing in order to be able to see it and change it).

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

Erik
