7181 - UCS TIE Interceptor
This file is OMR compliant but is missing the stand. I will add it at some point.
This model also has special meaning to me since it's the one that got me started on part authoring and contains my first official part (2168.dat). This lead to me becoming a more active member of the LDraw community and eventually to where I am today.

  Wedge 6 x 2 Right with Silver Windscreen Pattern
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-01-10, 3:46 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (1)

Request this part: 41747pb004, Wedge 6 x 2 Right with Silver Windscreen Pattern and its match. I have this part but I have no idea what bin it ended up in and it would be an undertaking to figure out where it is in my unpacked LEGO.

I do not know where I have to publish my presentation message so I hope it works here. I have learned everything with tutorials and this is not my first virtual construction but I want to learn more so this is the best site. I start only asking for advice, the MOC has two very different parts that are composed of several submodels, is there a way to join them in the end?, my solution so far has been pdf part 1 and pdf part 2 Tongue , thanks and regards to all.

  School project with LDraw tools
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2019-01-09, 8:50 - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (1)

Hi all,

From next week on I am going to guide 2 students at the school I work on a project for their course "Research & Development".
They are going to make a design for their project in LDraw! What this will remain to be seen, but it looks like it is going to be a "House of the future".
Normally the students make their design with scrapheap stuff, like paper, cardboard, paint, wood, metal, toilet rolls, bottle caps, etc. But now they will make a LEGO model of it.

We will use LDCad to digitally create the design and I will be teaching them how to do that.
Ultimately we will create nice renders and other graphics for the paper they must write for it.  And we will probably build the model for real with bricks too!
With 2 of my colleague teachers, I will also part of judging the project and help with the presentation.

I am pretty excited about this and think it is very nice to see a unique application for LDraw!

Best regards,

  2019/2020 LDraw.org Steering Committee: Call for Nominations
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2019-01-08, 19:19 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (6)

Per the LDraw.org Bylaws at http://www.ldraw.org/article/268.html, Subsection
6.03(a), the 2018/2019 Steering Committee hereby calls for the community to
nominate individuals as candidates for the 2019/2020 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 2019. 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!

Willy Tschager

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.

Information [LDPatternCreator] Release 1.6.9 (increased the background image scale to 100)
Posted by: Nils Schmidt - 2019-01-08, 10:59 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (2)


again, this is just a minor change, but it includes already some refactoring work on LPC's code base.

Download and install the latest LDPatternCreator release directly from sourceforge.net.

Change log:

New features:

  • Increased the default background image scale value to 100 (was 1).
  • I did small refactorings on the code base, which is important for the future development of LPC.
As always, I included a short readme.htm in the installation directory.

Cheers & Leg Godt

Could someone do the printing for 18675pb01 and 18675pb08?  I attempted to, but I just don't understand the subfiles enough.  

Thank you.

  Coaster designer
Posted by: Ronald van der Velden - 2019-01-07, 19:26 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (4)

Hello there!

After a few years of not using the LDraw-family of tools, I bought the Lego coaster set 10261 and decided to start a little hobby programming project on the side. I'm working on a roller coaster designer tool. Specifically, I'm trying to include two pieces of functionality that will be useful additions to the already existing tools:

  • Instead of positioning each brick individually, just add them at the end of the track automatically, similar to RollerCoaster Tycoon (anybody? Tongue  )
  • And... it will automatically generate a nice support structure, based on the position of the tracks, avoiding collision with the track itself or having too many pillars and ideally also connecting them with horizontal bars like in the 10261 set
The first bit is working including a simple renderer, open/save functionality, parts list and (obviously) export to LDR; I'm roughly halfway the support structure algorithm (it places pillars optimally at the right X/Z coordinates based on the track, but only uses the 2x2 round brick so far and doesn't generate horizontal connections  Cool  )

In the coming weeks I hope to add some screenshots here. Really curious to hear any suggestions or ideas you may already have!!

Best regards,

  LDCad Flex Hose problems
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-01-07, 12:42 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (2)

I'm trying to update some of my models for the OMR and I'm having problems with generating new parts for the Hose Flexible 8.5L without Tabs. This part should generate with a fixed 51 segments, 50 754.dat and 1 756.dat. This doesn't happen. Even if I force the length to be 170 ldu, the extra segments just generate with a null matrix. Any help on how to force LDCad to render the correct fixed length is appreciated.
