No, there wasn't a special reason for this.

I can do a 16 sided version. This should be hopefully done tomorrow.

I think, you must help me with the torus. I have no idea how to use it. Or more exactly which one is the right one.

And I think I found the reason for the different part number. Imho 48245 is only the bucket and 70973 is the bucket with handle shortcut but I'm not sure here.

Yes, I'll have a look!

Definitely no. 70973 is the chromed bucket without handle. Chromed handle seems to be 23293. AFAIK there is no design number for assembly (no need for it as bucket and handle are not pre-assembled)

More on tori calculations...

From LDD part, I measure (for top rim) an internal radius of 32.4 ldu and external radius of 36.1. The major radius is thus (32.4+36.1)/2 = 34.25, and the minor radius is (36.1-32.4)/2 = 1.85. The ratio is thus 1.85/34.25 = 0.054. We are thus looking for tori whose name end in 0540. Since this value is not critical at all, we'll choose an existing approaching torus. I'll go with t01o0625 and t01i0625 (ratio=1/16). These tori must be scaled in all directions by major radius, 34.25. Thus internal diameter will be 34.25(1-1/16)= 32.109375 and external will be 36.390625.

Other values (cones, etc...) needs to be derived from these numbers...

I hope I am reasonably clear...

Thank you very much. I have read the hints for the tori-primitives more than twice and did a bit like try and error in LDDP without any useful results.

But now the use is clear to me.

Ok another problem: how do you see a radii with 32 and 36? My LDD part is only something in the 24 and 26 wide.

I'll try by myself to get a good with these dimensions.

Oops, sorry! LDD part is not centered, I didn't pay attention to this!!!

Here is the bucket (without the handle connectors) just for checking it against errors.

I have found some very very small gaps where the tori meets the cones. So I tried to set the scaling factor of the tori to another value...but then I must use 5 different tori to cover the area where it is actually done with one cone.

(Scalling factor 24.5007 for the tori)

Don't know what to do here.

Could you also attach the new primitives (saves time/make sure for everything...)

Of course. Here they are:

Thanks! I only see gap from below where t01o1250 meets cone. There you can simply use a thin ring that slightly enter the cone to fill the gap (high diameter ring scaled down).

Otherwise you'll have to run Edger2 with expand subfile option to create additional condlines where top torus meets outer top cone. Maybe also add condlines where cone meets cylinder at bottom, but here it can be questionned as the slight break effet is rather nice (and condlines are not mandatory since it's a concave junction).
