I just checked every backup I have. If it ever existed, it's gone now.

RE: Existing Part Edit Requests - 4735

Currently the grooves on the part are only edge lines, which make it appear smooth during renders. I have reworked it, added proper grooves and a different clip. The clip needs to be a bit narrower though...





with narrower clip

Mom not a fan of the sharp ridges. The real part is more rounded. Maybe torii instead?

Since the part is so small, I can't be absolutely sure, but I don't think they are rounded. I think they are rectangular grooves with a flat outside. And using tori for features so small would be serious overkill. I think the walls of the divots are too sloped (should be closer to 90 degrees), resulting in the outer parts being too skinny.

Here's a hi-res picture of the part. It'S more a trapezoid shape. I also don't like too sharp edges, but using tori here would give us a LOT of quads...
   

I go ahead with those measurements, the indents will be shallower then as I used 1 LDU in the mock-up vs. 0,5 I get from the picture

I'd clearly go with the trapezium method, like s\604547s01.dat with the right ridge scaling. More is pure overkill at this scale.

Isn't this very close to the minifig tool handle?
Spanner, screwdriver, hammer. 6246a-f and 11402a-i
That design is placed in subfiles. Could they be used?

No, they have one too many groove...
I tried looking them up as well

Imho, bottom of grooves cylis are just wasting triangles (though you caould use a single cyli for whole length...)

You could just have one groove as a primitive/subfile.

I think that you're a spammer. Be careful.
