algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Is there a way to set the tolerance in Grasshopper?  Maybe it could take the tolerance from the Rhino Tolerance.

I'm getting numbers like -2.0178e-12, should be able to set tolerance to like 0.0001 or 0.001, or whatever, or else it takes tolerance from Rhino model? Maybe it's already done somewhere & I just cannot find it.  Just a small issue really, but just thought I'd ask.

GH does take its tolerance settings from the Rhino document. What you're talking about is formatting. Rhino almost always displays numbers that are in some way related to size. Curve lengths, point coordinates, areas, volumes, distances etc. In Grasshopper a lot of numbers have mathematical meanings and cutting them off at 3 decimal places seems like an awkward thing to do.

Grasshopper has its own formatting options:
