Problem with 2859 (train track 9V point right) - Franck C. - 2012-06-23

Hello,
there is a problem of connection with the part 2859.
See attached picture

No problem with the part 2861 (point left)

Thank.

Looks like an mirroring error in the creating phase.
I will give a try to fix in the next days.

I would have certified these files long ago,
but there's plenty of required files missing on the PT :-(

I had a look into these files also.
The entire content of file 2859 is a mirrored copy of 2861, including mirrored studs and subfiles.
When used in MLCad, it reports several files missing:
1-4edsp.dat ??
2863.dat
2864.dat
s/2859s08.dat

Does anybody have them?


Re: Problem with 2859 (train track 9V point right) - Franck C. - 2012-06-26

For 2859 this files missing :
- 1-4edsp.dat

- 1-6cyli.dat

This is precisely why these unofficial files have multiple Hold votes on the Parts Tracker.

Quote:Please remember: These are unofficial parts. They may be incomplete, or inaccurate, and it is possible that when they are officially released they may be changed in ways that could mess up any model you use them in. This is far more likely for Held parts than Certified parts.

I hope, I can finish a private project (creating an non Lego UIC-track for ldraw) tomorrow. So I will have a look into the switch-files the days after.

The new Parts Update is arrived (LDraw1202), but there is always the same problem with the part 2859 ?
I cannot connecting a train track (see file attach).

Thank you

Part 2859 is still an unofficial part to be used at your own risk. If you choose to risk it then you must suffer the consequences.

Your repeated complaints are bordering on rude. People are aware of the problems. It's a very difficult part to fix and will take time and effort.

I have to say sorry from my side, last month I did a lot of work in university, that it was impossible to come into the code of the switches. It's really complex part...
And I'll be in holiday for a couple of weeks now. So I can't do anything before October...
