Hello,

If it is possible, in what way can it be defined in *JUniForm* module?

Yes it is. Let the following points lying on a sphere

If a sphere is fitted using JUniForm one obtain the following results:

The radius is about `r = 5 m`

. If the radius `r`

is known (with superordinate accuracy), it is possible to restrict the parameters. Let `r = 6 m`

be the known radius. To fix the parameter, go to *Properties --> Parameter*. Change the *Processing type* to *Fixing*, and the *Initial guess* to 6.

It is almost impossible to derive appropriate approximations, if user defined surfaces are defined. Therefore, you have to disable the option. Go to *Adjustment* --> *Least-squares* and uncheck the option *Derive initial guess*. (To get appropriate approximations, just fit the sphere without restriction beforehand, afterwards add the radius restriction as described above.)

The restricted results are

kind regards
