Dear Mario, sorry for the late response. Typepad system was under maintenance or upgrade in the past days, we believe, thus did not allow to make or reply comments. In terms of the question, we are not so sure at this moment. Maybe you could post the question to some API forums to get back responses quickly and hopefully more relevant.
Dear Yna D. thanks a lot. Yes, the length unit is mm in the test model. Changing it to m or making the length much bigger made the behavior normal. A coming post will clarify about it. Best regards.
