Hi.

I don't understand one thing on the latests BikeEd.

When you create/modify a bike's geometry, once it's saved, the Right/left axis parameters had a value diferent from 0.

Code: [Select]
chassis_mass = -1.62463e-011, 0.547245, 0.0400825
And in the BikeEd it looks centered from the top view.

I tried to change it all manually, to repositioned all the rigth/left axis in 0:

Code: [Select]
chassis_mass = 0, 0.547245, 0.0400825
and I don't know if it's a placebo effect, but feels more stable.

The question is: The values diferent from 0 are a BikeEd bug or it is a sort of diferent calculation done in the latests betas?

1.6e-11 is 16 picometers. I'd gladly side with placebo effect :)

Could be a bug, or some sort of float-related issue (but I thought integers up to a given point were exact in float).
Anyway, it shouldn't make any difference.
