Try to convert this curve into a Circle using a custom tolerance.

Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Since: 5.0
public bool TryGetCircle(
	out Circle circle,
	double tolerance


Type: Rhino.GeometryCircle
On success, the Circle will be filled in.
Type: SystemDouble
Tolerance to use when checking.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if the curve could be converted into a Circle within tolerance.
