Common Issue - Relative Accuracy vs Absolute Accuracy

Partner Channel / Creo Parametric

The model can use two kind of accuracy:

- Relative Accuracy (default)
- Absolute Accuracy

This guide is to clarify the difference between the models accuracy settings.

1. Common Issues Relative Accuracy vs Absolute Accuracy Aug 2019

3. Enable Absolute Accuracy Issue When changing a small feature to even smaller or making a large feature even larger some features fail to regenerate . Solution Set the model to absolute accuracy and/or change the accuracy to a even smaller value : 1. Set these c onfig.pro first to enable setting Absolute accuracy enable_absolute_accuracy yes - adds the option to use absolute accuracy in the accuracy dialog box 2. Also set follow config.pro options to control accuracy : accuracy_lower_bound < value > - lowest possible accuracy value , in terms of relative accuracy default_abs_accuracy < value > - default value used when switching to absolute accuracy 3. Set the models accuracy to absolute and change the value :

2. Relative Accuracy vs Absolute Accuracy This guide is to clarify the difference between the models accuracy settings The model can use two kind of accuracy : Relative Accuracy (default): • This is a recommendation for regular modeling , it regenerates features faster using relative accuracy. • The PTC Help System states; use the default accuracy until you have a reason not to do so • Accuracy setting affects regeneration time / performance, see article CS64580 for more info Absolute Accuracy : The PTC Help System gives the following examples which may require a change in accuracy : • Placing a very small feature on a large part • Intersecting ( through merge or cutout ) two parts of very different size • Matching accuracy of imported geometry to its destination part • Matching model accuracies for merge , inheritance , copy geometry / publish geometry • Designing parts for manufacturing and mold design See - CS28313 - When is it necessary to modify model accuracy in Creo Parametric See - TPI 32869 - Detailed Information Regarding Model Accuracy
