 And last, there are commands like JoinEdge that let you exceed the absolute tolerances locally if you think it might be useful. Use this with caution!! You are deliberately saying it's OK to be inaccurate here! And last, there are commands like JoinEdge that let you exceed the absolute tolerances locally if you think it might be useful.

-There are two other tolerance ​settings in Rhino: angular ​and relativeThe relative tolerance ​is used on few commands and can generally be left alone. The angular tolerance is important in that it tells Rhino at what point you want two curves or surfaces to be considered tangent. The default setting of 1 degree is rather large for fine modeling. Surfaces that are 1 degree out of tangency can still show a visible fold or line. I find a setting of 0.1 degree or even finer to be better.+The relative ​tolerance ​setting is no longer present from Rhino V6 and up. 
 +Up until Rhino V5 is was used on few commands and could generally be left alone. ​
