Hi,

sorry, the last release had a bug. It's fixed now.

[Image: imgDuke2.png]
As always, you can download LDPE from this page:
http://nilsschmidt1337.github.io/ldparteditor/

Changelog:
(0 new features and 1 bug fixes)

With this release the following critical issue is fixed:
  1. Clicking on the tabs no longer changed the 3D view. / Scrolling in the text editor didn't refresh line numbers.
What will the next release 0.8.45 deliver? Usability improvements, more toolbars and shortkeys.



The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, it is still a beta version and something can go wrong in about 140.000 lines of code.

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 "LDPartEditor.exe" to start LDPE.
  4. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "run.sh" to start LDPE.
Alternatively, you can download a setup file to install LDPE on Windows.
When you install/extract LDPE on Windows you will find your LDPE configuration files under
{drive}\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\LDPartEditor
It is not recommended to use the "update.bat" script when you installed LDPE via the setup file.
Manually install the new version instead.

Please note that this software is in the beta stage. Although, this version was tested, there are already known issues  for this release. There is a potential risk of data loss.

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".
It is not recommended to use the "update.bat" script when you installed LDPE via the setup file.
Manually install the new version instead.

I listen carefully to your requests and possible complaints. Please leave me a message, with your thoughts and wishes to further improve the software.

LDPE 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 LDPE on older machines as well.

System Requirements:


Minimum System Requirements:
  • 64-bit Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8
  • OpenGL 2.1 compatible Graphics Card
  • Operating System (64-bit): Windows [7 or newer], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon II (>2.0Ghz)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video-Memory: 1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 100 MB
Recommended Requirements:
  • Operating System (64bit): Windows 7,8,10, Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • OpenGL 3.3 compatible Graphics Card
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor with 4 cores (or more)
  • RAM: >4 GB
  • Video-Memory: >1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 512 MB
  • For a faster start, LDPartEditor and the LDraw™ library should be installed on an SSD.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to check your JVM version (32- or 64-bit):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can try on the command line:

Code:
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.
Thanks, Nils!
That tiny vertex editor window is hugging my screen. It stays on top of all my open programs, if a vertex is selected.
Yes, already reported. If you want to switch to another program you have to iconize ldpe.
PathTruder is giving me a hard time. It seams broken in 43 and also 44. These files:

[attachment=3216]
[attachment=3217]
[attachment=3218]
[attachment=3219]

Work fine in LETGui but produce nothing in LDPE. What I'm doing wrong?

So far I never tested Pathtruder in LDPE, seemed (even) more complex to use than command line/letgui...

I created an issue (#700) and hope to fix that with a next release.

Subfile references are currently not supported by LDPE's PathTruder.
Let me help you:

  1. Inline all references in the PathTruder.dat file until its full of coloured lines
  2. Select everything inside the PathTruder.dat file
  3. Open the PathTruder tool and click ok

Works like a champ. Thx for the tip.

Hi,

just wanted to say that I only need to finish one issue (#255) until milestone 0.8.45 is ready for release.
There will be a new release in August this year Smile


Cheers,
Nils
