The subject of the well written and structured paper is well within the scope of AMT as it provides new tools and data for the correct use of an (already established) instrument for snowflake measurements called "Multi-Angle Snowflake Camera" (MASC). For this purpose, the authors use a combination of numerical simulations based on an Euler-Lagrange approach and field based measurements. The main findings are guidelines for the correct usage of the above mentioned MASC, which I consider a

Event though the article is quite good in my C1 AMTD Interactive comment Printer-friendly version Discussion paper opinion and I would not argue with the main findings, I have some remarks. (Disclaimer: Please note that I am not an expert in precipitation measurement and my expertise mainly is in fluid and particle dynamics and the simulation thereof. So if there are points regarding especially the meteorological topics that I did not get right, please do not hesitate to object/improve.) Major remarks: 1) The description of the CFD simulation setup should be a bit more detailed: What is the total number of cells? (Table 1 seems to give a wrong information about this, as the cells would be much larger as they seem in Figures 1(c)-1(e) ) Have there been any examinations on grid independency?
