Slick trick for force closing a sketch profile in FS?

Stormi_BackusStormi_Backus Member Posts: 49

My company recently switched to OS from Alibre so I am re-vamping all of our configurators with FS. This went super well for roller chain sprockets/bushings but I am struggling with welded steel and pintle chain sprockets because the mathematics in the ASME are JUST imprecise enough to prevent a closed sketch profile. We're talking 0.000000 - OnShape can't even measure the distance between the point and circle highlighted below. 

I found a way around this by using configurations instead of featurescript as you can see here, but my coworkers vastly prefer having the FS in their toolbar over having to insert a configuration. 

So, I am wondering, does any one have a slick trick for forcing a closed profile in featurescript? Maybe there's something obvious I am over looking? Any solution I've thought of wouldn't hold true from part to part. Thanks!
