Comments:
- I suggest to add "Twisted" to part name
- I don't understand what "matte representation" has to do with the absence of condlines
- I would like to see condlines present as well
- the part is fine and very nice otherwise

holding this until a consensus about how to include
parts syntesizing (e.g. LSYNTH) in our library has been found,
see ongoing discussion at

Comments:
this should become a primitive

threads can be created then in various lengths and positions from it.

for example using lsynth.
or other tools can derive the required diameter from this primitive
and then generate the thread computationally.

1) the link http://forums.ldraw.org/read.php?21,199,199 does not work for me
2) I think, as long as discussion is not finished we should not hold for more reasons that are not shape related. Discussion should just result in a decision for such parts.

I would like to use that part/primitive for some models.

As this part has been on hold since some time, I guess I can take it over to have it certified.

Before changing anything, can I have some reviewers' thought on that :
- Should it be renumbered (u77a or some kind of Lsynth syntax (LSxx) )?
- Should I add Condlines?
- Should I add Lines?
- Should it be a Primitive?


All these questions also apply on x77b part.

(Or maybe we want to stick with the official LS60.dat and there is no point on reworking this one... just tell me)

Reviewer: MagFors

Comments:
Where and when would this section be used?
I don't see the relationship to ls60. ls60 is a hexagonal string section,
and this looks like a cross section of a twisted, tri-corded string section.

If used, IMO, all of the surfaces are made of concave pairs of triangles and should be flipped,
except the internal corners, and edge and cond lines are missing.

Comments:
The concept of this part as it is done is to provide a fluffy look, hence the angled structure and lack of condlines/edgelines. Imho, it's good as is.

As I've read here:
http://www.philohome.com/isecalc/pathtruder.htm
I thought this x77 parts have been made to kind of replace the actual LS60 string section by a more realistic one. Am I mistaken?
