 Normal Resolution 16pt. Pictures clipped from LDView. (sept. 27, 2000)Ok, here is a few quick shots of the torus's that I have created. My spreadsheet only creates a 1/8 torus section using existing 1-4cyli, 1-4cyls, 1-4cyl2 dat files. Normal Resolution 16pt. Pictures clipped from L3 Lab. High Resolution 48pt.

I believe the way we are going to handle these are by establishing ALL torii will have a Major diameter of 1(one) LDU, with the tube radius changing. (The tube radius should never be over 0.9999 ldu.)The Blue circles in the pictures are the Major radius and the Red circles are the Tube radius. (Torus pieces shown in transparent blue are for reference only.) May 6, 2001 Filename format so far looks like; (It may still change some.) tNNxFFFF t stands for Torus NN = sweep, number of segments 04=4/16 or 4/48. (1/4 shown) x = "i"(inside),"o"(outside), "q"(quarter?{i,-i,o,-o}) FFFF = Size of the Tube Radius(Red rings) Ex: 3333 = 0.3333(1/3), 5000 = 0.5(1/2) Here is a list of suggested files to be generated. Most of them are fractions such as: 1/10(.1000), 1/9(.1111), 1/8(.1250), 1/7(.1429), 1/6(.1667), 1/5(.2000), 2/9(.2222), 1/4(.2500), 2/7(.2857), 3/10(.3000), 1/3(.3333), 3/8(.3750), 2/5(.4000), 3/7(.4286), 4/9(.4444), 1/2(.5000), etc.
