Corrected the name and rebuilt using PrimGen2.

FWIW: the previous version of this file was created by copying an existing 48-primitive and deleting the segments that weren't needed, so if there are errors in the math then those are still present in the file I used...

Use proper "binary" primitives -- in this case, a combination of a 2/16 (i.e. a 1/8) and a 1/16.

Alex, Do you remember which one you used?

Franklin, I don't understand. Could you explain?

Not off the top of my head, unfortunately, but it would most likely have been the next existing fraction up from this one in the same radius.

Reuploaded as this prim is perfectly fine

Why are you taking over the ownership of this file?
I think the original author, Alex Taylor should remain as the creator of the file.

Sorry, but my original complaint stands.

I continue to object to the unnecessary inflation of primitives for people who do not want to use proper binary logic.

11 is the sum of 8 + 2 + 1, and each of those sub-parts ALREADY has a proper primitive existing.

This 3-16ring11 cannot be made by combination of 3-16ring1, 3-16ring2 and 3-16ring8.
Furthermore, this prim is equivalent to the combination of 1-16ring11 and 1-8ring11, but this needs fractional rotation.
Thus, I think there are sufficient reasons for this prim to exist in the library.

I'm with Magnus, Franklin. Please show us some code as I don't understand either what you're talking about.

IMHO a binary counting is not good in this case as it involves rotating the 1-16 prim by 45 deg.
I could live with a - base 4- count, e.g. You only got these.:
1-16
1-8
3-16
1-4
May be a 2-4 as the icing on the cake.
This would allow to construct a sections without the need of rotation

I.e. 11-16 looks like a
2-4 + 3-16

Sorry... I meant that 3 is the sum of 2 and 1.

Why should I increase unnecessarily the poly count if an additional prim of an already existing ring series does the same job? You wanna talk about clutter - you've chosen the wrong part. Go and discuss all the useless shortcuts we have.

Please remove your hold.

There is no other solution to this need, neihter using only official primitives, nor using unofficial primitives.

There is no official, or unofficial, shorter primitive you could use rotated.
And using many thin hi-res primitives is bad practice. Keep the triangle count low.
