Hi everyone,

below is the file I will export,all units in lego:

then ,following the http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptscan.cgi?q=4869
I downloaded 4869.dat

parts/4869.dat
Plane Jet Engine Centre


I searched the library path,like below:

I already checked that page,the example brick 4869.dat in the LDraw official parts library,do I need "Using a Custom Parts Library"?If so,the LeoCAD has  already set the path:

1.The complete.zip file include the 4869.dat

2.The parts path,already include the 4869.dat

I tried set the folder path which included the part dir,

And reopen the LeoCAD, then open the missing part file,still DOES not display,so,is it the LeoACD problem or my steps problem?Please point me,thanks!

Finally,I found the issue,my steps are all correct,the issue is the Lego's ldraw.xml ,I download a new one from http://gallaghersart.com/page/new_ldd_pa..._ldraw.xml
,then the missing part of example can be displayed!Wow,but a lot of them still can't display, where should I get the ldraw.xml  which include all missing bricks?Or is there a conversion tool can fix this issue?
I think the latest, and constantly improved, version of ldraw.xml is kept at Eurobricks.

Download a fresh copy from here.
