The Maximum Tolerance function shows the maximum tolerance of a polyline compared to 2 straight lines, by creating these 2 straight lines. This can be aligned to the polyline or to the coordinate system (Horizontal/Vertical).

This function can only be used on open polylines. For a group of lines, first convert to a Polyline using the ‘Single Elements to Polyline’ tool (See ‘Polylines’ for more information)

To Create/show the Maximum Tolerance lines:

  2. Enter ‘1’ for Aligned, and ‘2’ for Parallel to Axis. Confirm your selection with ‘Enter’ key or ‘Confirm’
  3. Now, select the polyline
  4. The maximum and minimum lines will now be displayed as colored lines.
