Thank you again Gerald.
This is what I got.
But I am not sure about the colors. On the imagens the grey seens more bluish.
I think the leather belt color is close, but it's kinda hard to find the colors.

Next I will try doing the skier head I think.
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
Hi Bruno,

this is a good start for the first part. Are you going to upload it to the PT?

There are things which should be fixed prior upload:

* These vertices should be on the same line. We author the pattern in an "ideal" state, which means we correct misalignment and small errors which clearly come from the printing:

2 4 11.024 .838 -10 -11.498 .824 -10
2 4 17.356 31.567 -10 -17.586 31.428 -10

* There are color gaps which should be closed:

3 1 6.766 .908 -10 6.061 1.634 -10 6.508 1.215 -10
4 1 5.993 4.789 -10 5.98 4.817 -10 6.359 4.635 -10 6.522 4.524 -10
3 1 6.563 4.524 -10 6.522 4.524 -10 6.359 4.635 -10

* Superfluous vertices:

4 14 16.515 24.293 -10 16.447 24.265 -10 16.502 24.712 -10 16.529 24.335 -10

2 10 6.617 16.74 -10 6.658 16.782 -10

Parts from 75300 and 75301
BB has some pretty good pictures of new parts coming with the new X-Wings and Tie Fighter
https://www.brothers-brick.com/2020/12/0...er-review/

Does anybody already have a number for them?

And I think we need new Prims for this type of Axle hole

- Technic Brick 1 x 1 with Axle Hole
- Technic Brick 1 x 2 with 1 x 2 Plate (2)
- Plate 6 x 6 with 5 Pinholes centred
- Brick (?) 3 x 3 Round with recessed studs

Why a new prim? looks like a plain axlehole to me! I see no significant difference compared to a Technic 1x2 with axlehole.

The 1x1 brick with axle hole doesn't have an internal bottom. I agree with that we dont have a suitable primitive.

A new prim for a single part???
...speaking of that, I had a close look at my collection of 1x2 with axlehole. 4 different types! (and none of them match our 32064a!!!)

From left to right:
• axlehole with slight asymmetry (axl3hole), completely enclosed and middle stud3
• axlehole with strong asymmetry (axl2hole), completely enclosed and middle stud3
• symmetrical axlehole, slightly elongated, sides open in brick, bottom ribs (no, the ribs don't hold an axle)
• symmetrical axlehole (axl2hole), sides open in brick and middle stud3.
My relatively recent Boost set contains 3 of those types!!! (missing type is the axl2hole one).

The round brick has the same hole on the bottom.

@Magnus, yes, the 1 x 1 brick is open

I meant that we used the AXLEHOLE prim for sightly rounded holes.

Yes, for the meantime I used a new one, based on AXL3HOLE, for the final part I am not sure if I should go with our symmetrical one, AXLEHOLE, AXL3HOLE or a new instance

Imho it's a standard AXLEHOLE symmetrical hole. If we choose to round it, AXLEHOLE should be reworked in all parts in order to solve the old collision issue with R4 bars. And of course AXL2HOLE and AXL3HOLE should be updated too. Huge task to verify all parts containing them

I'm in favor of a new primitive, since the old AXLEHOLE prim is incorrect,  Its derivative axlehol8 is even bfc inverse.
Many of the complete axlehole shortcut primitives contain to many edgelines and can't be used because of that.

IMHO we should obsolete the whole AXLEHOLE family, and force new parts to use a more correct design.

I made this investigation in the beginning of the this year.

I think the biggest issue is that we can't obsolete, or rework these AXLEHOLE primitives, since they are used both as AXLE primitives and as AXLEHOLE primitives. Some need to become ~Move to axleXXX.dat primitives, and some need to be reworked.

Thank you very much for the help. I will fix this problems.

Sadly I can't upload the parts because I FU when I created my account (put an white space in my user name). The white spaces cause some kind of bug on the software that checks the headers of the files.
I think I will create a new e-mail and create a new account with an username without spaces.

No problem, not really started! I would have been more radical with T-junctions, but you know me
Otherwise, end of beam should be modeled with standard beam width (and a step near 2nd hole), see attached photo.

RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
I've created the stickers from sheet 4650854 in set 3185 Summer Riding Camp.

The patterns are printed on a silver mirror sheet and I am wondering which color should be used, 80 metallic silver or 383 chrome silver.
The color regulation says: "In general, metallic colours on stickers, patterned parts, and other printed materials should use the LDraw Metallic Colours and not Chrome or Pearl colours. There are exceptions that will be handled on a case by case basis."
https://www.ldraw.org/article/512.html#colours

For the sticker piece 4650854h, the silver is functional as a mirror, thus I've used color 383 similar to the other mirror sticker 4614425b.
It is a sufficient reason for an exception, I think.
https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.c...14425b.dat

However, the silver in other pieces 4650854a-g and 4650854i-o is only a decorative purpose.
I've complied with the regulation and used color 80 but got hold.
https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.c...50854a.dat

I think the solution is either the following two:
(A) Apply the exception to the entire sticker sheet 4650854 and use color 383 (better reproduction of real part)
(B) Observe the regulation as much as we can, and retain using color 80 for decorative pieces

The similar problem comes with sticker sheet 4620858 in set 3187 Butterfly Beauty Shop, and more.

Thanks,
Takeshi
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
I believe we've used Chrome Silver for similar stickers.
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
(2020-12-22, 0:53)Orion Pobursky Wrote: I believe we've used Chrome Silver for similar stickers.
Yes. Color 80 is used for plain, diffusing printed silver, but when sticker really acts as a mirror (even if it's not the intended usage), 383 chrome silver is the right choice. The point is to have the best possible visual appearance.

See eg. https://www.ldraw.org/parts/official-par...id=197295a
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
Thanks Orion and Philo.
I've understood why Magnus made hold vote and I agree that reproducing better color than sticking to the regulation.
The color 80 metallic silver is apparently different from the mirror sheet (I've found that color in 76371pb080 and 87552pb058 from my daughter's brick box).
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
Yes, this is the right way. The ldconfig file not only contain rgb values, but also other properties of the colour.

The spec state "There are exceptions that will be handled on a case by case basis."
Metalized plastic stickers with a chrome looking finish is one such exception, and should use 383.

It's some sort of mechanical springloaded, return-to-center, tilt steering wheel axle.
The axles move in opposite directions when the whole vehicle is tilted.

The mystery of the 2 missing ldu's.
Merry Xmas to you all.

I have a mystery for someone to solve. I'm totaly stuck.
When I look and meassure this part I only find straight lines, 90 and 45 degree angles. Thus the centre point of  the axle must be at 20,20,0, where the 2 red lines intersect.

69963_40_lines.jpg (Size: 61.86 KB / Downloads: 618)

But when a try to build a structure of real parts around it, the center point of the wheelpin ends up at y=22

Maybe it's only caused by perspective deformation, and I don't know if this solves the missing 2ldu issue, but I have the feeling that the wheels pins are NOT centered on central bar hole...

I thought so too, but regardless of an offset, or not, it would only move the wheelpins along the 45 degree line.
It needs to be moved along the vertical line.

It needs to be moved along the vertical line.

Or should the wheel-pins be in line with part 4600?

i.e. like in your file put 4600 like this:
1 1 20 16 0 0 0 -1 0 1 0 1 0 0 4600.dat

Dang it, I think you're right! Now I have a way forward.

I made the physical mockup, and then assumed those parts (4600, 21445, 4488) would have the wheelpins at y=22 , but they are at y=21.
There's an awful amount of play in this tilt axle assembly. I think it must be true.

Thank you, Gerald.
RE: Parts we are Working on - Part Deux
Here is a model of the buggy in set 60288, using these tilt steering wheel axles.

The axles are rotated +/- 6.5 degrees, and then the whole vehicle is rotated ~5 degrees to be horizontal again.

There are a lot of similarities with 57518 and 88323
