Non real-life separable parts


Non real-life separable parts
#1
I was wondering in the 18-01 library there are some pneumatic parts which are actually subparts of things you shouldn't (can't) be taken apart in the real world.

These kinds of parts used to have the ~ prefix as far I understand.

Did this change?

I noticed this because now I have to filter out parts like 19466c01.dat and 19467c01.dat in my LDCad default pneumatics bin.

Purpose of ~ is to hide parts from casual users, and, among other things, it is used to hide FIXED assemblies components as they shouldn't be used directly. In the cas of moving part assemblies (pneumatics, motors, etc), the user may want to make their own assembly to exactly match their model. Unfortunately not all LDraw editors have sophisticated templates or inlining capabilities Wink

I see, maybe we need to introduce a qualifier for this like the new flexible one.
