## Error description

• ```Drafting (GenDraft) / Dimension value between
same entities of two different section views are
different
.
SCENARIO:
.
1. Start CATIA V5.
2. Open Drawing1.CATDrawing.
3. On B-B Section, create Intersection point
between line and circle.
4. On B-B Section, Create dimension by Centre line
and Intersection point.
>> 0.75 dimension is created.
5. On A-A Section, create Intersection point
between same entities.
6. On A-A Section, Create dimension by Centre line
and Intersection point.
.
RESULTS OBTAINED:
.
0.78 length dimension is created instead of 0.75.
.
EXPECTED RESULT:
.
As intersection point has been created between two
same entities the dimension should be same.
.
```

## Problem conclusion

• ```THIS PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED ON Virtual Design  VERSION V5R21
GA level.
NOTE THAT THIS PROBLEM WILL ALSO BE FIXED ON V5R20 SP3.
Incident Diagnosis:
Dimension value between same entities of two different
section views are different
.
DEVELOPMENT REQUEST JUSTIFICATION:
.
An intersection point consists in a 2D point which is
involved in 2 coincidence constraints. Being
both coincident with 2 geometries, it is by definition,
located at the intersection of the 2 elements.
In the provided scenario, the intersection point was
erroneously created as only one coincidence constraint was
created. The coincidence with the cone intersection was not
point arbitrary positioned. As a consequence, the dimension
value was not relevant.
.
