Why not use code 494 - Electric_Contact_Alloy ?
I got my hands now on part 49949 (Cylinder 6 x 10 x 4 1/3 with Open Sides and Pin Holes)


Edit: 22nd April, up at the Parts Tracker

To get the primitive substitution working on the thin large curved section I made a hi-res tangetnial prim (1-16tang) which works nice. I would like to have others like this as well, like 5-48tang, but for those LDView is not handling them as it does with the 1-16.
I intend to have a look at Boat Hull Giant Bow 40 x 20 x 7, but I'm missing part number... Brickset lists assembly as 20033, and Bricklink as 18913c01. Anybody knows if 18913 is top or bottom? and number of the other one?

That hull is already done.

I must have mistyped the number... Thanks Magnus!

Top is 18912 and bottom 18913

How do I describe this part? Is it a Brick, Torso, or a Suit?
Where should the origin be? I want to place it as the same as 973.dat have.

I'd say that since the arms connect to it that it is a torso. As far as the origin, use your best judgement.
I was working on 2436c (new type of 1x4 / 1 x2 bracket) only to have Magnus discover that 28802 (same element but named after the new Bricklink name) had been submitted after I checked the day before: https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.c.../2436c.dat

Now the question is. 2436c is the naming that Bricklink used unti recently, but they have now changed to 28802. Should we just silently forget the 2436c name or have it as an alias? The 28802 part submitted by Cheenzo has a better triangulation than the one I have submitted, so it should clearly be the one to use.

Sorry we both worked on the same part. Actually I checked as well before starting working on it.

Regarding the choice of 28802, I referred to Rebrickable where I saw that Lego used 28802 too: https://rebrickable.com/parts/28802/brac...rs-at-top/
I think having [color=#333333][size=small][font=Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif]2436c as an alias makes sense.[/font][/size][/color]
