    There is no way, as far as I know. You must manually calculate the intersection point, if I remember correctly.

    I do not know what the parent criteria is, nor do I think that matters much. What I am saying is that, on the one hand you have the values of the GZ calculated by Maxsurf and on the other hand you need to calculate the ones of the heeling arms curve, and determine in which value of the heel both sets of value coincide.

    You can plot it in Maxsurf . Need to choose the criteria and correctly input the values.
