Hello to all,

I would like to suggest you the modifcation of the points of origin (or insertion) of parts with multiple horizontal floor or slope.

In Annex I report the current situation for two parts of this kind with respect to two normal parts (actual.jpg) and where it would be, for me, more convenient to move the origin point (proposal.jpg). The green points represent the points of origin of the parts, in the top you can see the list of parts (with their position) in both cases.

Currently, for parts with more coupling planes, there is chosen as the reference plane the highest plane.

For some parts of the slope, which does not expect to have pieces on himself, it is chosen as the origin the plan to which they support, while for others the highest floor, as if they were bricks of standard height.

This modification would allow you to use a simple sort function to sort the parts of a model from the bottom up, without having to re-check that the parts are in the right order for a real coupling.

I can imagine that it is a long job to find and change all the parts that require it, but then you would have the advantage of finding any alignment issues since only text files, without graphing.

At the end, I report a partial list of items that would be subject to change.

I am not aware of rules in the implementation of the parts against my proposal.
