Default Scripting: How to set topology tolerance in a script

macfly is on a distinguished road

At some point in my script I had to create surfaces (ic_surface 4pts ...) that are very small (surface side length ~0.001 m) compared to the other ones. Icem CFD would refuse to create the surfaces: Surface sides are too small. Check topology tolerance.

I looked for hours for a scripting command (thanks to the awesome Icem CFD Programmer's Guide...) that sets the topology tolerance once and for all at the beginning of my script. I found nothing in the guide but after a lot of clicks in the GUI and looking at the generated commands in the Replay Control window, I finally found what I was looking for:

ic_set_global geo_cad 1e-4 toler

Very convenient command that is not described in the Programmer's Guide. Hope it helps!
