More accurate formulas for calculating the AX-L for mitre-bends
Hello,

The AX-L of mitre bends (midpont and endpoint) is calculated depending on the number of mitre bend elements and some interpolation in the mitre elements, which is less accurate in the Indentifier list. The calculated AX-L value is not a fixed value, because when you use finer mitre bend element lengths the calculated values of AX-L in the midpoint and endpoint will change and be more accurate:

AX_L_mid_mitre_bend = AX_L_start_mitre_bend + GEOMRAD * TAN(RADIANS(0.5 * BEND_ANGLE))
AL_L_end_mitre_bend = AX_L_mid_mitre_bend + GEOMRAD * TAN(RADIANS(0.5 * BEND_ANGLE))


Why don't you use the more accurate formulas for calculating the AX-L for mitre-bends in the Identifier list.

Regards,

Shaswin

That shouldn't happen, I'll look into this as soon as it is feasible.

There was indeed an inaccuracy in calculating the AX-L values in mitre bends.

In the meantime, a patched version 4.5.0 is available where (among others) this error has been fixed.
