How to decrease the tolerance or straightness of a curve

      Hi, please how do I decrease the tolerance of a curve in spaceclaim? my curve has an angle of 30 degrees and radius 241.02 mm. However, when I try to create another curve with a smaller angle, they don't match. 


      I want to reduce the length of straightness in the curve

      File > SpaceClaim Options > Rendering Quality and enter a larger number, like 7.


      Note: the arcs are geometrically perfect, this setting is just affecting the display quality. You could turn the rendering quality down and make the two curves look worse, but if you took them into meshing and meshed them with closely spaced nodes, the nodes would follow the true arc and not the rendered facets.

      If you look in the SpaceClaim options under first menu change the rendering options and decrease the number. A better approach may be to copy & paste the line you have and then split it? Or just split it.
