I’m not sure what happened here, but for whatever it’s worth, I was in no way offended by Cole’s request. I only wish I were in a position to model a Proton pistol parametrically at the moment. If I were, I would have been happy to do so and to share it here.
It sounds like Cole was airing his frustration here about a conversation he had in private with an unknown party. Such an issue would probably be best confined to a private venue rather than a public research/discussion thread here. But other than that, I don’t think there is anything wrong with asking for help. Cole is a young member here with limited resources who is eager to learn, and that is what our community is all about.
