I have not yet tested this gui version, but from the description on the page you refer to I would like to have one additional features.
- If the needed tori already exist it should be mentioned.

That's a pretty different thing, as this implies knowing where the library is, etc... But if Max goes this route, then it would be even better if the program could provide a list of "nearby" tori - dimensions can often be adjusted a bit -, or with another number of divisions (eg. show 1/4 torus when 1/2 is required). No need to clutter library...

Mike, please note, that I planned this as a calculator only. The wish for checking, if the torus already exist is a good idea. Maybe I'll find the time to implement something like this in the future. Unfortunately I'm really busy with real life 'problems' for the next months. (You know what I mean ;-) ) Anyway I'll make me a note in my LDraw-Folder for this.
