Summary0002317: diameter vs radius
DescriptionIn the real world it's the diameter that you care about, not the radius.

The most simple example: the diameter of a screw .

On the other hand, engineers might prefer radius when they are designing things (I just guess).

Personally, I find radius wasteful, because my mind thinks "diameter".

So, make it optional.

TagsNo tags attached.
