How do you see if there's a gap between two pieces? An example may be to see how tight the lid of a box is on the box carcass! Place a light source in the box and turn down the overhead lights. You can see the gap and decide if it requires further action. The box in the example has a sliver of light showing because the top has a very slight end to end bow -- about 0.010. I don't intend to fix anything with that light bow over 16 inches.
