Define error codes

I have looked thorough all the manuals I have and I cannot seem to
locate the place where a brief description might be.

"ERROR:In E:\vtk2.3\Nightly\vtk\common\vtkPolygon.cxx, line 1172
vtkPolygon (0x191D2150): Possible triangulation failure"

and this line repeats five times with different Hexadecimal addresses.
I think that it has something to do with the fact that I an trying to
force eQuest to accept a pitch roof with a flat roof next to it. The
last question is; do I really care?

Thanks for all of your help.

Best regards,

Yes, it's related to pitched roofs. No, you don't care. See attached

Yes, I've even seen this error get stuck with my model file even when I
toggled the pitched roof on and off since I didn't need it anyway (I was
just playing around with the things in eQuest).

I've found that its an error associated with the 3-D graphic viewer and
doesn't harm eQuest or your model file at all.
I second Bill, ignore it; and don't care about it.

However, it's good to be mindful of this little quirk because when I
received a model file with this error in it for the first time, it threw me
off for awhile and I wasted a bunch of time researching it to learn that I
didn't care about it. :)
