# Rhinomergecurves

``````[merge.rar][1]  has many curves ,and I want merge these curves to one curve.
``````

using rhinomergecurves function.
the biggest gap between curves is less tham 30.but I set the tol to 50,the result curves are also not just one ,but two .
I have to using rhinomergecurves function again to merge the two result curves to one .

why I can’t merge the curves to one curve just one time.

My “solution” in this case is to increase the tolerance a few times until the curves are joined:
``` double originalTolerance = 1e-12; double tol = originalTolerance; Curve[] curvesToJoin; // this is the collection of curves to join; Curve[] joined = curvesToJoin; int n = 0; while(joined.Length > 1 && n < 6) {```

``````joined = Curve.JoinCurves(curves, tol);
tol = originalTolerance*Math.Pow(10, n++);
``````

}

if (joined.Length > 1) // uh-oh, the curves are still not joined.

Ok, I know this is C#-like pseudocode, but I hope you understand what I mean. Basically, you increase the tolerance with a factor of 10 in each iteration of the while loop until either the curves are joined or the tolerance has become too large.

I have edited some stuff - it should be OK now.

thanks for you help ,my codes are just like your.
and these can solve the problem.
but i think maybe this is a bug of rhinomergecurves.
and i want to know why this happens?

I’m not sure, it may have to do with rounding errors and the fact that curves may need to be reversed when joining into a single curve.

Does Rhino’s Join command work to join your curves?

Here are no known issues with the RhinoMergeCurves() SDK function.

Can you post a 3dm file that contains the curves can you cannot join?

dale ,the first article has this 3dm file

I don’t see it on this thread. What am I missing?

dale:
I am sorry,I upload his file before,but I aslo can’t open this link now.

I upload this file again,please help me to see why I can’t merge these curves one time

Clearly, you cannot join all of the curve segments together because not all of the curve segments match end point to end point. The curve segments that do match end-to-end join using the Join command. They also join using the RhinoMergeCurves() SDK function. When using RhinoMergeCurves(), use a joining tolerance of 2.1 * the document’s absolute tolerance.
