Ledge under slope bricks (very minor details)

Yes, the main goal is to keep LDraw system self-consistent imho.

Good point (I guess you mean 4LDU radius tube Wink . Problem is that thickness of axle arms are modelled at 4LDU, the real thing is closer to 4.5LDU. Changing axlehole primitives would be easy(*) but that would impact the construction of many bricks around holes. Perhaps just blunting a bit axlehole teeth?

(*) Actually the primitives would be simpler since we could use a simple eighth division of 6 ldu hole! (2*6*sin(22.5°)=4.6)
