You can download LPE from this page:

Make sure that you choose the right architecture for your OS and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) (64bit or 32bit).
A short guide how to check if a 64bit JVM is installed on your system is located at the bottom of this message.

  1. Download the zip-Archive
  2. Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
  3. On windows, double-click "run.bat" to start LPE.
  4. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "run.sh" to start LPE.

Please note that this software is in the beta stage. Although, LPE 0.8.1c was carefully tested and developed, there are already known issues for this release. There is a potential risk of data loss. LPE could endanger your system stability, too.

You can search for updates if you do the following steps:

  1. On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
  2. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "update.sh".

LPE is a 3D CAD application: The overall system requirements are higher. While I recommend to use a powerful 64-bit multicore system, it could be possible, to run LPE on older machines as well.


With this release you will be able to...
  • ...emulate mouse keys on a focused 3D window with keyboard keys (K = Left Mouse Button, L = Right Mouse Button, M = Middle Mouse Button)
  • ...Convert selected Lines to Conditional Lines
  • ...use a even better "Delete" function in the parts tree (it creates .bak files for project parts and deletes only the reference path to non-project parts).

This release includes bug fixes as well (thanks to Willy for sending me his log files).

How to check your JVM version (32- or 64-bit):

You can try on the command line:

java -d64 version

If it's not a 64-bit version, you'll get a message that looks like:

This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM. Please install the desired version.

In general, I recommend to install the 64-bit version of the JVM.
