Dear Philippe Hurbain [Philo], 

In real life these two pieces are a good fit:

but studio renders them like this [sorry image updated with version that is rendered with the updated version of the piece, so reference removed]



hpoort at studio forum - explained Wrote:It looks as though the outer cylinder of the connector is too small (18 LDU in stead of the 19 LDU of the round brick).

Note that neither of these numbers represent the exact size of the parts, as that would be 20 LDU minus tolerances. The tolerances used in LDraw are not the exact tolerances used by LEGO in producing these parts, but are integer approximation best suited for digital building.



Can this be fixed?
Let me know if you need more photo's, renders or files.

Thank you very much.

Just tested it in stud.io, looks way better Smile
Thanks!

The drawback is that it is now thicker than Technic beams. But IRL it is, so...

Indeed, just tested it on a real liftarm/beam corner and indeed the 62462 is wider than the corner of a Technic beam.
Looking at the cookie piece with 62462 in studio, looks like similar to how it is in real.
