I do not know, if this one should become a primitive or a subpart. It is only useable for one part (until now).

Since it shares a lot of thing with handle.dat primitive, I would indeed create handle2 with a bare minimum (round bar and hand rectangular frame) for a maximum of flexibility, and update handle.dat to use it.

I agree with Philo.
The two flaps at the ends of the cylinder could be removed.

The semi circular cutout in the cylinder makes, together with the rectangular frame, a "hole" with a radius of 4 ldu.
It makes it possible to mount a shield on a bar. Like this:
1 0 0 -40 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 30374.dat
1 70 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 handle.dat

That's why I want the origin to be placed in the middle of the "hole".

The more I think of it, the more it seems that this origin is the right one (main usage is in minifig hand, shield bar is a natural rotation axis). Shields on a bar are much more anecdotal. Problem is that several similar shields (eg. 2586, official) use origin in the middle of hole instead.
What should we prioritize, functional origin (in the middle of bar) or compatibility between shields (middle of hole)?

I'm ok with either one, as long as we decide on one of them.
And yes, there will be exceptions, since both are used in official files.

IMO both files should have the same origin. Now they don't.

I have sent an updated version of handle.dat to Admin.

Does somebody have a solution for the origin problem handle vs. handle2?

I like the origin of this file very much. As a result the handle.dat should get the same. In the middle of the bar

Ok, now I looked deeper into this.
handle.dat is already official. Changing that origin will result in an additional file with no further benefit.
So I would vote for to change this file to use the same origin as handle.dat.
For the parts that uses this file it is another question, but need not to be discussed here.

The only file that has another origin seems to be "Minifig Shield Scarab" (93251.dat) where it is totally off. I don't know how this file could leave the tracker with this origin.

I suggest that we move the origin of this file, so that handle.dat and handle2.dat have the same origin.

What would be a good description for it?
handle.dat is "Handle for Flat Shield"

I suggest "Handle for Bent Shield"
