  Importing into Blender
Posted by: Chris Kiepfer - 3 hours ago - Forum: Help - No Replies

Is there any way to change the red color that is assigned to the imported part. In materials it is called "Material_4_c" and is a dark red. If I change the color in the .dat file before importing, it is still assigned to the Material_4_c color?
If I could change the Material_4_c color that would work?

Posted by: Chris Kiepfer - Yesterday, 21:47 - Forum: Help - Replies (4)

Is there any way to sort the .dat files by the category, the first line in the file is the category. I want to sort all the files into groups by category.
There are too many files to open each one manually.

Rainbow [LDPE] 1.8.68 Released (rotation lock on view / formatted "Name:"+"Author:")
Posted by: Nils Schmidt - 2023-06-04, 20:54 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (2)


this version provides a "lock" button in the 3D editor to lock the rotation of the view.
It also adds some formatting to the "Name:" and "Author:" lines in the text editor.

Side notes:
I am currently learning the Rust programming language and the Vulkan API.

[Image: imgDuke2.png]

As always, you can download LDPE from this page:



(2 new features and 1 bug fix)

With this release you will be able to...

  • ...lock/unlock the viewport rotation.
  • ...see "Author:" and "Name:" formatted as bold and italic in the text editor.

The following critical issue is fixed:

  1. The "Browse..." button for the Background Picture path opened a dialog to "save" the image instead of "open".

The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, something can go wrong in about 140.000 lines of code.

Installation on Windows:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_win32_x64.zip
  2. Run LDPartEditor-1.8.68.msi
  3. Start LDPartEditor from the start menu
Installation on Linux:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_linux_x64.zip
  2. Install ldparteditor_1.8.68-1_amd64.deb
  3. Start LDPartEditor from the menu or via launcher
Installation on Mac OS X:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_mac_x64.zip
  2. Mount LDPartEditor-1.8.68.dmg
  3. Drag LDPartEditor.app to the Applications folder
  4. Copy ldparteditor.sh to your home folder
        4a. Open a Terminal.app and run ./ldparteditor.sh
        4b. Or open a Terminal.app and run /Applications/LDPartEditor.app/Contents/MacOS/LDPartEditor

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:
  • 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.

Exclamation Lpub always crashes
Posted by: Hannes - 2023-06-03, 3:10 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (1)

I have made a model in Ldraw. It has 4950 parts, about 200 submodels, 260 steps and some Templates. First time I tried to open it in Lpub. It opens and generates 3740 pages, every single step on a separate page. When I tried to modify the size of the model and partlist images, it crashes without any notice. I have read some posts to solve the problem on my own, made some changes in the setup. Now it doesn't open the model any more, it crashes without opening the data. First question is how to restore the defaults and second question is how to open the model with reduced image sizes? Is there a way to force it placing 3 or more steps on one page to reduce the page number?

  "Uncertified Subfiles" (Yellow) Part Status
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2023-06-02, 16:37 - Forum: Parts Tracker Discussion - No Replies

For those of you who haven't noticed, I've added a warning box under the part status on the part detail page. This box will detail the reason why a certified part will not be released. This includes uncertified subfiles, no certified parent parts (for non-part fix primitive and subparts), and other validation errors. My intention is to add one more reason: "Manually prevented by administrator". The warning box will show even for non-certified parts for increased visibility to potential errors.

With these changes, the "Uncertified Subfiles" (Yellow) part status will be retired and parts with that status will fall into the other 3 non-hold statuses as applicable. The rollout for this will be sometime this weekend.

Hello, I recently got a Type 2 Transformer for the 12V Trains, should I do that one here in LDraw?
Because then I would also request the Type 1 (the one with the studs on top) including the old automatic switch buttons 7852...

  Small issue in Parts Tracker Activity Log
Posted by: Vincent Messenet - 2023-05-30, 19:06 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (2)


When on a different page than the first page of Parts Tracker Activity Log (e.g. https://library.ldraw.org/tracker/activity?page=3) the button "1" does not do anything as there is no URL on it. The only way to go to the first page is by clicking on button "2" then on button "<".
