Todays, smaller update is again about group 02. Progres here will slow down, most of old finished files are converted in thus group. Besides two quite complicated ones there are few which i didn't finished then, so i will more time to convert and finish them. So:

-equalizers between third and fourth axle:

-equlizers between fourth and fifth axle:
Image
http://para.zonk.pl/Ol49forum/fcstd/02/P283-1-0.fcstd

-spring hangers, gibs and clips:

@wieszak17 I have opened this file (to see how you model things and perhaps learn from you as well ;) ) and I am puzzled how you create (for example) the nuts?
Can you explain, please?

I just made them once in every size and simple copy them into projects. Here you are:
http://para.zonk.pl/nakretki.fcstd - FC16 (FC15?) file, never converted.
Bolts are nearly the same, separate file with common sizes - i'm only changing last Pad to set length of bolt, then simple copy it to project:
http://para.zonk.pl/srubazwykla.fcstd

I'm not copying Revolutions/Pad/Pockets from this files for one reason - it would greatly slow down loading project file without giving any merit - these are standard things, no need to edit them.

an interesting (and different) way of doing things ;)
understand, thank you.

BTW there is something strange (at least to me) in your nut (nakretki) file.
How is it possible to have pockets and revolution without body container?
Why do you use "Group" instead?

There was no body/part element when that file was created - it is FC16/15 file. So Group was only way to somehow organize objects. I have never converted that file because i'm only using refined shapes from it. Bolts was the same, but because i need to change Pad i was forced to convert it to Body/Part.

Hi Wieszak, I've been enjoying your project. But I noticed that all your bolts are threadless. May I offer assistance? ThreadMaker Macro

It's good practice to not model the threads. The reason is that it would make the 3D model unnecessary complex / harder to calculate / recompute and render.
