  2017/2018 LDraw.org Steering Committee: Call for Nominations
Posted by: Max Martin Richter - 2017-01-16, 21:01 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - No Replies

Per the LDraw.org Bylaws at http://www.ldraw.org/article/268.html, Subsection
6.03(a), the 2016/2017 Steering Committee hereby calls for the community to
nominate individuals as candidates for the 2017/2018 Steering Committee[1].

Please post nominations in response to this message. Nominations will only be
recognized if they are in response to this message.

Per ss.6.03(a), you must specify the name of the person you are nominating,
along with your name. Another member of the community must second the nomination
in a reply, and the nominee must publicly accept the nomination in the same
channel (direct reply to the nomination or second) in order to be valid. If the
nominee does not accept, it will be assumed that he or she has declined, and
they will not be placed on the ballot.

Nominations will close at 11:59 PM GMT on 28 February 2017. This means that to
be listed on the ballot, a candidate must have been nominated, seconded and must
have formally stated acceptance by that time.

The Steering Committee will give sufficient notice of the election and election
procedures per ss.6.03(b).

NOTE: subsection 6.03(b) states that elections should take place before March 1.
We interpret this to mean that we will commence the election on March 1, but
since it is electronic, it will run for 2 weeks, just as last time. The exact
time and date of start and end will be announced sometime very close to (but
after) 0000 GMT March 1.

Again, thanks to all of you for your commitment to the goals of the
organization, and in working with us this year. Please, stay involved with
LDraw.org and keep it moving forward!

Max Martin Richter
On behalf of the LDraw.org Steering Committee

[1] Try not to confuse the LDraw.org Steering Committee (SteerCo) with the LDraw
Standards Board (LSB). The Steering Committee sets the course for the LDraw
Organization while the Standards Board deals with the LDraw File Format.

  New Theme Choice
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2017-01-13, 4:17 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (6)

 I found a new theme for the forums that might be liked better by some. It's a bit less white and more grey like the old forums software.  I still have to do some modifications to it (e.g. some images are broken) but you can give it a test drive.  

- Go to User CP
- In the sidebar under "Your Profile" click "Edit Options"
- On the right under "Other Options" change "Board Style" to "stb"
- Click Update Options

Please let me know what you think and if you notice any broken images which seems to be the biggest issue right now.

If so, who could make me a shot with a 20 megapixels camera of the golden dragon?

Photo LDView STL Export
Posted by: Tore Eriksson - 2017-01-11, 4:54 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (6)

How come only color 16 shows up when an LDraw file has been exported to STL using LDView? All other colors go invisible. Is that intentional? (The data is still there though, since the STL file is good for the 3D pinter anyway).

And no, it's not a BFC issue; all I have to do is change the color to 16 and it shows the surface again.

  LDraw and LGEO licences
Posted by: Reuben Pearse - 2017-01-06, 22:57 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (1)

I'm interested to understand the licensing arrangement for the LGEO library, especially as this is different to the LDraw library

The statement at the top of each of the LGEO inc files says:
"It is provided for private non-commercial use only."

I'm curious to understand this limitation, as the majority of the LDraw parts are released under the Creative Commons Attribution Licence 2.0 which allows commercial use.

Is Lutz Uhlmann still the primary maintainer of this library? What are the options for requesting a less restrictive license?

BTW: I noticed that the main reference on the LDraw website to the LGEO library is currently a dead link:

How do the parts created by Darats relate to the original LGEO library? Could these potentially be re-released under a different license?

I'm also curious to know why I keep spelling licence differently every other sentence Smile

  MLCad.ini 2016-01 update now available
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2017-01-05, 11:16 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - No Replies

Hi folks,

I just updated the MLCad.ini file accordingly to the latest LDraw.org parts update 2016-01. The .ini file defines (among other things) the parts available in MLCad's minifigure generator.

Download the file from my website: http://www.holly-wood.it/mlcad/mlcad_ini-en.html

Bye, w.

  Sloped brick with Batman logo
Posted by: Reuben Pearse - 2017-01-04, 7:53 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (2)

I'm looking for an LDraw version of this part: http://picclick.com.au/Lego-batman-slope...86812.html

I found this part (973pb0a.dat) that has the Batman logo, but how do I extract just the Batman logo from the dat file (I was thinking I could just create a sticker part and lay it on top of the slope brick).

I also found this sticker part (4297014a.dat), but the logo is to big for the slope brick - is there a way to easily scale this logo to make it smaller?

What's the best tool for selecting/extracting certain parts of an existing part file? (other than Notepad++)
