RE: Part Snapping missing/errors - Stefan Frenz - 2020-03-10

I have problems with part-snapping of roller coaster tracks on top of other parts, i.e. 25061 (90 degree), 26561 (ramp), 34738 (S-shape), 26599 (S-shape lower)... They snap perfectly "under" another part, but not on top of it - so I let them snap below and move 2 plates (16 LDU) upwards. I don't know if this is my fault or if the parts are missing snapping info.

This is the symptom of no snapping at all. It works from top because the part inherits connectivity of studs, but there is no common structure on plate bottom to allow subparting and inheritance.

Part 6628 is missing bar connectivity inside pin section:
0 !LDCAD SNAP_CYL [gender=F] [caps=one] [secs=R 4 18] [pos=20 0 0] [ori=0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 -1]
See set 42106 for usage example.

I've finished the snapping info for the 1903 library.

I also processed all thing people mailed me about and things mentioned above up to message #13.

Thanks for all whom contributed.

You can (always) download the latest seed file at:
http://www.melkert.net/action/download/shadow.sf

Just replace the old one in LDCad's seeds location  (subfolder of the exe file).

Some notes

@Orion
I can't find 75181, did you mean 61485 ? although that one has snapping info.

"All the flex-system hoses have no snap info."
They do have info, but only for the end caps, or did you mean the bended parts. LDCad doesn't support that at the moment, maybe in 1.7

@N.W.Perry
I applied your #5 definitions with some minor changes which should make it somewhat easier to use. Feel free to review.

Yes. (75181 is the set I was working on). Unless the info is in this update, then my current shadow library does not have it

Not the bent ones, the straight ones. And it would be helpful to have this info for the middle section.

The door element 60616a does not snap into 60596 (but for example 60623 does) and the window element 57895 does not snap into 57894.

Everything looks good to me!

Did you update to the above shadow?

Because only 57894 doesn't have snap information in that version.

I'll add 57894 to the next update.

On the tested installation: not yet, sorry. Sad

The hose reel 2585 does not snap into the hose reel holder 2584 (with shadow.sf). Not a problem, but maybe nice to have. Smile
