VTube-LASER Intersection Near Pass Deviations

VTube-LASER understands tube shapes where 3-D lines are expected to intersect. However, it is rare for 3-D lines to intersect perfectly in the real world. So, VTube-LASER has a mechanism to deal with this issue. 

It calculates the Nearest Pass distance when finding 3-D intersections. If the near pass value is reasonable (below a preset tolerance), then VTube solves the intersection by taking the average point where the 3-D point should intersect in space.  See the video to visualize this idea.
