Thank you, but no, it doesn't. I got the proportions completely wrong. I'm working on the second attempt right now.

And someone should establish semi-opaque colors for ldraw. ;-)

I decided to make the pattern light gray, since it's darker than the space shuttle part, which is definitely white.

BTW: can i post comments in the review section without another upload of the part?

Oh, I didn't know I was allowed to do that.

Another question: When I inline the primitives, the headers of those primitives are put inside my file. Do I have to keep these? It's a lot of data.

No, you shouldn't keep anything but code!

I ran a file with subparts through Edger2. Where the subparts meet are some unmatched edges. Is that okay or should I work on that?


Re: 30485pb01 Windscreen 8 x 6 x 3 Curved Top Angled Canopy Pattern, how to start? - Philippe Hurbain - 2012-03-22

There may be _some_ mismatches because of limited precision. You can try to increase a bit precision value in Edger2 to see if the unmatched lines disappear. Pattern may also have created some T-junctions... Attach the file so that we have a look... (tomorrow for me Wink


Re: 30485pb01 Windscreen 8 x 6 x 3 Curved Top Angled Canopy Pattern, how to start? - Daniel Goerner - 2012-03-22

Okay, if I set the precision from 0,001 to 0,0011 the line dissapears. I wanted to merge the two subfiles but there is an unmatched edge between these two. I can't get rid of it (except with the precision thing).

BTW: Chris, would 30485ps0 be okay for this?

Yes - please use 30485ps0.dat
