Minimum radius

N/A

Hi,
I am performing 'minimum radius analysis' on a face. The result which I am getting
(in information window) tells two minimum radius with different radius.
How can be there be more then one minimum?
How many maximum number of minimum radius can be found on a surface (with different
radius values)?
Please do cc of the reply to sachin.goyal@geometricsoftware.com

I think you will discover that it is finding a minimum radius for EACH SIDE
of the face. Note that while this might sound odd when analyzing the face
of a solid body, you have to understand that if you had selected the face of
a SHEET BODY, getting BOTH of these values could be critical.
