Have you found a misused primitive?
Let us know in this thread, and we will fix it.

In a discussion about adding connectivity information to parts based on the primititves, it was pointed out that many parts 'misuse' primitives. They have been

This thread gathers examples, as suggested here.
peghole.dat is misused as a semi-understud, without inner cylinder.

I can find about 10-12 parts using peghole.dat incorrectly.

32556 (yes, 'Technic Pin Long' is using a peghole.dat incorrectly. Funny.)

4727 is allready fixed and uploaded at PT.
All of the parts misusing peghole.dat is now corrected and uploaded to the Part Tracker.

* 32199.dat, 32200.dat, 32201.dat, 32202.dat, 32235.dat, 32580.dat Technic Axle Flexible various length - uses lots of "axlehol8.dat"
* 32062.dat Technic Axle 2 Notched - uses axlehol8.dat, axlehol2.dat, axlehol9.dat
* 99008.dat Technic Axle 4 with Middle Cylindrical Stop - uses axlehol8.dat, axlehol2.dat, axlehol9.dat, axleho10.dat, axlehol3.dat
* 47330.dat, 47300.dat and maybe other parts from Bionicle with ball socket uses various "axlehole-type" primitives for ball support.
