New Design ID for 18675 -> 35173 - Gerald Lasser - 2020-04-17

Seems the change of transparent material brought also a lot of changes to the design-IDs.

I had ordered a few patterned "Dish 6 x 6 Inverted - No Studs with Handle" that we used to know as 18675, however to my annoyance they sound a bit cheap if you drop them on a table compared to the old (PC) ones, but they also have a new number, 35173. BL even lists a 35191

How do we organise the printed parts?

Keep on authoring them for 18675 to get a proper overview?

I would prefer to keep them as 18675 and add a keyword for the new design-ID, at least they will then pop-up in the search.

What do you think?

Since we’re also discussing an APPLY_TO meta for the header, I think it might be time to introduce an ALIAS meta. I may have opposed this in the past(?). The more official sets I build, the more I think we maybe should have one. Since this would be a header command, we could even fast track the parts it applies to. Since
