I think '4-4ering' is an answer to Philo's question above.

I like that suggestion.
One file, containing a set of 16 x 1-16chrd, to be use once in a round tile.

Yes, it was an answer to Philo's question!

I think we could use this primitive to prevent gaps around any 16-sided, non-primitive based, design.
I tried adding a 4-4ering to the recently changed Rims 93595p01-p03 and it works fine.

If a pattern, or subfile, made of non circular primititves, is placed inside a ring or ndis primitive there will always be gaps around it, in primititve substitution mode.
This idea, the 1-16chrd and any X-Xering, will close that unwanted gap if placed correctly. It could even be used to add differently coloured areas.

I'm not able to visualize the 4-4ering primitive, so can you give me the correct insturction to be included, soas to complete the four parts 93595?

You need to add this to the front of the rim, sometimes coloured depending on the pattern.

None of this is in the specs or the PT restrictions nor has it been ratified by the LSC. I do not expect reviewers to hold a part for mere suggestions in the forum.

WOULD THE PEOPLE WHO COOKED UP THIS HACK PLEASE PUT IT IN AN OFFICIAL SPEC AND ADD IT TO THE PT RESTRICTION.

Thanks

Is this really necessary, since it concerns a single, already official file (empty.dat)?

It does: http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/14769p0b.dat

And I guess this is the right place for: http://www.ldraw.org/article/512

A comment in 1-16chrd.dat with a link back to this discussion is not the way to document things.
