Existing Part Edit Requests


RE: Existing Part Edit Requests
#42
Hi,

I know this is an older thread but I think my concern fits very well to it's title.

I came across that the two torus primitives "t04ounit.dat" (as an outer regular torus primitive) and the reverse ratio torus primitive "r04o1000.dat" are essentially identical.
Also a major radius to tube radius of 1:1 couldn't exactly be called reverse. So in my opinion the "r04o1000.dat" would actually be redundant and therefore obsolete.

I investigated further, that the "r04o1000.dat" is only used in 2 official parts ("6797.dat" and "56554.dat") and 1 official subpart ("11459s01.dat") and apart from that also in 1 unofficial part ("34172.dat") and 2 more unofficial subparts ("2715s01.dat" and "34172s01.dat"). That's all up to now with regard to the latest (un)official LDraw parts collections (http://www.ldraw.org/library/updates/complete.zip and http://www.ldraw.org/library/unofficial/ldrawunf.zip).
So there are all in all only six available files where this part is actually used and where the "r04o1000.dat" could just be replaced by "t04ounit.dat" and I litterally mean just a word find-and-replace is enough and everything is fine and we can get rid of this unnecessary part.

What do you think?

I mean I could do that in a wink if you want but I'd like to avoid a new and absolutely unnecessary recertification process for these few affected parts.
And a new certify process would be obsolete because it wouldn't actually affect these parts in any way as these replaced primitives are really absolute identical.

Kind regards,
Tom
