    For new object I want to use the profiles.
    When i check the resulting values of
    REQUEST (“Profile_default_geometry”, profile, _profileGeometryRawData)
    I always get wrong values the one point of the profile has x=0.
    Instead of 0 o get -6.30182e-17 or other values.

    The Problem only occurs when i place the point to 0 by mouse.
    Entering the 0 numerical, evrything is fine.

    -6.30182e-17 is effectively zero.
    Archicad has always had this error (someone else will have to explain why – floating decimals or something?).

    -6.30182e-17 = -0.000000000000000630182

    I will often just change it to zero in a script just to make it easier to read.
