  Search possibilities in LDCad
Posted by: Per Bjørnholt - 24 minutes ago - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - No Replies


My second day ever with LDraw.org - didn´t know about the existence until yesterday, but better late than never Wink

My question is: When I´m working in LDCad, I have the possibility to search for a brick, but I have to do it in the right category, but that takes up a lot of time whem I'm new, to figure out where that is.
So, is there a way to do a meta-search, where I can do a search in every category in one place and then get a list of results from each category where let's say 2x4 or propeller exists? Or maybe even better - do a search with the official LEGO-number like 2569 (it's an atenna)?

Hopefully some of you can help me, and I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but I haven't found it.

All the best,
Per (Denmark)

  Duplo figures
Posted by: Philippe Hurbain - 2017-10-18, 18:39 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (4)

I am working on "modern" Duplo figure parts... so I am looking for a proper set of qualifier for the various variants. The one I'm doing is called "LEGO Ville" on Bricklink, (eg. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...47394pb021) but there are many older variants!

Hi all,

What is wrong with Rebrickable?
Links to MOC's all end up at the same MOC?

  BB-8 Body
Posted by: Gerald Lasser - 2017-10-13, 14:41 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (4)

I decided to do a few parts from the LDD leftovers. One of the is the BB-8 body, part 20953.

When doing it in the usual 16  segment, I find it too rough, not giving an eye-pleasing result. However making it 48 segments seems a bit too many, as the number of (plain) surfaces on the sphere would be around 720. I tried with 32 segments for a circle now and this is the result below. Note, that the print is 48 segments.

What's your opinion on the number of segments?

Hi all,

Because I probably won't ever build it for real, I began digitizing the 75192 Millennium Falcon just for fun.
Reaching step 378 I ran into something strange which is I think an illegal connection?
The red liftarm won't fit here?

  Commissioning Custom Parts Design
Posted by: A D Barbour - 2017-10-10, 22:05 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (2)

I design custom Lego models and one of my clients is seeking someone to create LDraw versions of a set of custom tank tracks so that they can be correctly represented in LPub instructions for his kitsets.

My client is willing to pay a reasonable fee for anyone capable of producing these virtual parts. If this sounds like something you are interested in, please contact me via my website (http://www.bm-mocs.com) and I will put you in touch with the client.

  How to add/update latest parts in LDCad?
Posted by: Yasen Nikolov - 2017-10-10, 18:34 - Forum: Help - Replies (9)

Hi guys, i'm relatively new to designing Lego models, and I'm missing some essential information on some important and maybe simple to do things like this, so I decided to ask for help. 

I'm using LDCad and it is amazing, but for the first time I encountered a part that is not in the library, because it is from 2017 sets. I updated LDCad with the latest version, but I don't think this is what needs to be done as part is still not there. I downloaded latest parts from the site as well, but am not sure how to or if I am at all able to install them into LDcad.

Could you please provide me with some guidelines how to add missing parts into LDCad 1.6a?

Thank you in advance!

  LPUB Callout Pointer syntax & bending

Can someone please explain to me the meaning/syntax of the <intBase> Parameter in the both metas


0 !LPUB CALLOUT POINTER (TOP|BOTTOM|LEFT|RIGHT) <floatLoc> <floatX> <floatY> <intBase>

And in addition: Is there any chance to model a bended arrow/pointer? If so, how?

If I missed some sources bringing light in this, please point me to them.
