The LDraw.org Steering Committee is pleased to announce that the 2020 James Jessiman Memorial Award (JJMA) recipient is Lasse Deleuran.

Lasse has been instrumental in bringing LDraw rendering to web browsers. His WebGL software package, buildinginstructions.js, powers the part preview on the Parts Tracker, the model viewer on the LDraw.org main site, instructions on Rebrickable, and his own site, Brickhub.org (and maybe more that I don't know about). His can do attitude, willingness to help, and passion for LDraw has helped to improve LDraw's usability and visibility. In addition to all of this, he has graciously made his code open and sharable to allow others use it in their projects.

On behalf of the LDraw Steering Committee, we thank Lasse for his contributions and look forward to working with him in the future.

Congratiolations Lasse
Well deserved
Congratulations Lasse, and thanks to your hard work!
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Tillykke Lasse. 

Velfortjent.
Congratulations! The many contributions of the LDraw community never fail to impress. Smile
Congratulations! Well deserved!
Congratulations Lasse!
Congratulations Lasse!! Thanks a lot for your brilliant works in the community.
Thanks everyone. This contribution has really been well received here at LDraw and it is thanks to the massive amount of work by Orion that we have the 3D previews of parts and alternate previews of OMR models. 

It is my hope that the performance can be improved further so that even the largest of models will render quickly on the slowest of hardware. I also have many other ideas in the works, such as an easy-to-use web-app for creating stickers / patterns and automated step generation for building instructions. Imagine if all of the models in the OMR became building instructions! Or if you could get a live in-browser 3D preview each time you upload a .dat or .ldr file to a forum post?
