Quote:Stud groups

Stud groups are provided to reduce the size of part files with many regularly spaced studs. The naming convention is as following:



N = type of stud (regular stud, hollow stud, underside stud, …)
X = number of studs on the x axis
Z = number of studs on the z axis

To prevent an overload of the library with all sort of combinations, the numbers on the x and z axis are limited to:

1xZ stugs
Xx1 stugs (Due to stud orientation you cannot rotate a 1xZ stud group by 90 degrees to get a Xx1 stud group)
XxZ stugs where X==Z

These primitives must not be scaled.
