SUMMARY: Point file .pts import truncating accuracy
Sorry, should have said Creo 2.
I received this answer off-list:
"Not sure what release your using: If it's Creo 2.0 try this config option: default_dec_places
Setting Range is (0 - 13)"
Sure enough, changing this from 3 to 6 caused .pts values to be imported at their full accuracy of (wait for it) 8 or 9 decimal places (depending on total number of digits - actually 10 sig fig). Go figure....
I also had this reply on Planet PTC:
"Check that in your config.pro the following setting is set:
On Creo 2.0 M100, I tested that when I changed it to read:
the system then started truncating the .pts imported dimensions to 3 decimal places (the value of default_dec_places setting)"
I haven't tested this but assuming it works, it sounds more useful than just increasing dp everywhere (which I'm sure we didn't do when this worked properly some years ago).
