im really sorry but im an noob to this.
is there an tutorial to making and naming parts?
changing color i can do, but what to put in the file header?
putting things together i can, but need to learn a lot. ;-)


p.s. is a file header something like:

Name: 71986.dat
Author: Remco Canten [RemcoC]
!LDRAW_ORG Part UPDATE 2013-08
!LICENSE Redistributable under CCAL version 2.0
Technic Ribbed Hose 35 ribs


!HISTORY 2013-08-02 [PTadmin] Official Update 2013-08
The header structure is documented here.
That's what I meant - just use DATHeader for that, it takes care of this stuff for you.
should it be something like this?

changed name, orientation, color and descriptions.
Let's settle a bit the naming and orientation discussion... Yes, the orientation is now like other ribbed hoses, but origin is wrong. to match other ribbed hoses, it should be in the middle of the part. Try turning on the axis view in LDView to check that Wink
first colored the centre one black and used it as an directional.
after i centered that one with the rest hanging on i turned color back.

middle piece is at 0.000,0.000,0.000.


p.s. how can i on the parts tracker reply to what others say?
or uploading an improved part?
Yes, origin is OK now Smile

Use a "review" with novote option.

Just the same as a new part, but don't forget to check "Replace existing file"
Well, I can do quick review here too,
1. The part is OK now
2. The header is wrong:
It should be:

0 Ribbed Hose [lenght in Studs] (Please note that this part has somehow 10.5 Studs, I think we should investigate here)

Please notice my comment in the PartsTracker, too.

thnx for al the info you give me.
got any more for me to crack my skull at? ;-)
im still new at this all but willing to learn.
Well, at least there is a list of numbers at Brickset, but I can't figure out how to read it.

Currently at the Part Tracker we have:
72504, 2L, uncoloured
72706, 3L, uncoloured
71952, 4L, uncoloured
71944, 6L, uncoloured
71951, 8L, uncoloured
71986, 11L, uncoloured
43675, 19L, uncoloured
4506910, 4L, black (referring to 71952)

According to the list at Brickset, the numbers used are:
72504, 2L, silver metallic OR black
72706, 3L, black
71952, 4L, bright bluish green
71944, 6L, silver metallic OR black
71951, 8L, bright bluish green
71986, 11L, black
43675, 19L, trans light blue
4506910, 4L, black (referring to 59905)

In the list at Brickset there are 9 different DesignID for a Ribbed Hose, 2L, but which number should be used in the uncoloured file?
Is 72504 the correct partnumber to use as a uncoloured part?
Are the current partnumbers for Ribbed hoses at the PT used correctly?
