Thanks Gerald.  I imported into Part designer -> Lego Studio but seems to be having issues snapping to 2x2 plates.   Have you seen any issues?

Which connections did you add?

I am not using PD daily, but when I add these three bottom-connections according to these scheme in the picture it will snap to a 2x2 plate and also to a single stud between the ribs. Strange that one position is 0,41 to fit exactly.

   

edit: turns out nice, edit once more, correct colour now

Thanks Magnus,
   Sorry I'm a noob at PartDesigner.   I get the following error (see attachment).

I'm just added the connections and works great!  Thanks.

Yeah I'm like a month late or smth, but it is a problem you can deal with by copying the subpart you need to both [Studio install directory]\ldraw\parts\s and C:\Users\murta\AppData\Local\Stud.io\CustomParts\parts\s

Prob there is a way more convenient way to do that but I'm not aware of that

Thanks Max, I appreciate the follow-up.   I figured it out shortly after posting my message.  I only added the subpart to the User AppData directory, but so far so good.  Thanks!

Yes that's the way to go. Afaik the only type of files that need to be added to studio internal library is new primitives. Studio itself finds them properly in CustomParts \p folder, but parts designer needs them in internal library.
