Official parts with errors/typos - Mario Pascucci - 2014-11-09

Hi all.

Working on coding some Java libraries to handle LDraw libraries I hit some parts with errors. Following a brief list with errors/typos I found:

* 3842a.dat uses BFC CERTIFY INVERTNEXT
* 3842b.dat uses BFC CERTIFY INVERTNEXT
* s\3068s101.dat uses color 391 (unknown)
* 973psk.dat uses color 391 (unknown)
* 4150p02.dat uses color 354 (unknown)
* 973p7b.dat uses color 354 (unknown)
* s\2528s01.dat at line 385 there is a triangle with 4 vertices
* s\6582a.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6582b.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6580a.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6581a.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6594a-c.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6595a-d.dat all quads are "bow-tied"
* 2907.dat some quads are "bow-tied"
* s\6579a.dat all quads are "bow-tied"

Hi all.

Part 3678b.dat "Slope Brick 65 2 x 2 x 2 with Centre Tube" uses wrong "tube" on bottom.

Tube using "stud2a.dat" but its size is wrong (should be "stud4a.dat"?). Checked on Bricklink, LDD and LDraw editor (no check in real part, I don't have one).

Attached screenshot file shows 3678b (right, with green selection box) and 3003 (left) to compare underside tubes.

Hi all.
While building this, I noticed that metal detector (part #4479.dat) bar seems too large. Part file reports scale of 6 but I think correct value is 4.

Yes, it is wrong. And a comparition with LDD data reveals even more issues.
This part is currently present at the PT, so these issues can be fixed now.

trans-red is ldraw. green is LDD

One more:
Part 6216.dat (Brick 2 x 4 x 2 with Curved Top)
Underside "stud3a.dat" and reinforcing internal ribs are 1.5 LDU too short. Internal "stud4a.dat" is correct.

Part 6082 "Panel 4 x 10 x 6 Rock Rectangular"
"stud3a.dat" on opposite sides are 4LDU too short.

PS: can I submit correct models? How can I do?

Thank you
