      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.
