Dual molded leg - Orion Pobursky - 2019-09-23

Looks like we'll need to make a file for dual molded legs:

Boots is not what I would expect. A rename may be in order.


Rename "with boots" to something more descriptive - Orion Pobursky - 2019-09-23

Thinking more about this. I really do think we should rename this to "dual color" or "dual mold". "Boots" does not, in my mind, evoke what this part really is.

I agree. "Boots" is not a good description.
These two-coloured legs are now also printed, sometimes the pattern is placed across the joint.
Barefoot, flip-flops, shoes, boots, shorts, knee-pads, to name just a few patterns.

Another question.
What part of these two-coloured legs should be uncolored? Upper or lower?

I would say lower. upper (Edit: I misread the question).

The ones on the PT have the upper part uncoloured that's my preference as well

Hello,

I don't think we should use "dual mold" or "dual colour". Except maybe in the subparts.
I want to change the description on all of these files and use "Lower Leg" instead of "Boots".

If "mold" makes it into any parts in the library, somebody needs to verify that is the correct Australian spelling, since the LDraw library uses Australian English. My understanding is that "mould" is the preferred British spelling, and Australians more often use British spellings than American ones. However, I don't know the preferred Australian spelling in this case.
