What does the "Cusp" error mean in Contours>Edit Contours when I click on the Check Problems button in Studio?

A Cusp error means that some edges of contour lines are meeting at an undesirable sharp angle.


See the example of such an error below in the screenshot. These contour lines meet at an angle that is too small for fitting good surfaces on the model, and needs to be adjusted.



Adjusting the subdivision points to create a slightly larger angle will fix this error. Click the Check Problems button again to see if the error still exists.
