Arc Resolution

GBRComp must perform all boolean operations on straight edge data. To do so, it must first convert any arcs or round pads into segments. The Arc Resolution parameter controls the number of segments based on the angle that each cord will subtend. Values range from 2 degrees to as much as 45 degrees. It is dangerous however to select very coarse values or the shape of the resulting output may be badly distorted.
