  Call for LDCad 1.6 bug reports
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 8 hours ago - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - No Replies

Hello all,

I decided to do a 1.6c version of LDCad as I've gathered a couple of small issues making it worth while.

But I would like to address as much as possible as this might be the final 1.x version.

These are the known issues:
- Copy goes wrong when multiple instances are involved of which not all are really selected (e.g. some are hidden trough buffer exchange).
- ctrl + 'plus' or 'min' hotkeys don't work.
- Animation mode does not apply buffer exchange visibility.

And some minor tweaks/additions
- Hotkeys for zooming and panning
- Allow higher and unlimited max script execution time
- (very)Basic export (probably CSV) for part bin contents. Mostly for use with the "All parts used in the current model" bin.

Please feel free to report any additional issues and or minor tweaks.

  Website is Broken

Hi! I was wondering if the website is broken for anybody else. I would like to download all the parts files but the website won't let me download anything! It appears like this: here
Is there a mirror download or something? 
If it helps, in the HTML file I think it says that the links were removed in the new CMS made simple version. Please respond soon!

  LDcad zoom issue
Posted by: Kevin Hendirckx - 2018-07-19, 13:30 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (3)

Hello there,

I've been having a small, but annoying, issue with LDcad and I was wondering if someone might know what's wrong.

Whenever I insert a new step or modify a control point in any way my whole model gets zoomed and rotated back to the default window (a sort of zoom extends, combined with a camera position reset if this makes it any clearer). Now this is not a very big issue, but it is very annoying when editing flexible parts the my view keeps going back to this default position after each little change.

  Creating stickers
Posted by: Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen - 2018-07-16, 12:04 - Forum: All Other Programs. - Replies (10)

I usually create stickers to my instructions with sticker generator.
Does anyone know if there is another piece of software that can generate stickers - preferable at a higher quality than sticker generator?

I was looking for arms fitting with part 22472 but I could not find them on PT.
I do not know the part number but found this on BL:

Does someone know if that part is already done or not?

  Periodic outages on LDraw.org due to server change
Posted by: Max Martin Richter - 2018-07-13, 14:56 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (4)

Dear LDraw users,

Dan Boger and Peeron, our long time web host, have decided to downgrade their server. This will require us to move to a new server of our own. The process of this move has already started (the forums, omr, and wiki are already transferred). Moving the main site, including the Parts Tracker, is more complicated and there may be some downtime while the move is in progress.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

LDraw.org Team

  LDView Weirdness
Posted by: Cale Leiphart - 2018-07-12, 5:30 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (6)

Could some one tell me what is going on here? This snap shot is taken from LDView. Some of the part outline colors on the model are randomly switched. Some black parts have a dark outline while others have a lighter out line, Same with the red and light gray.

I would actually like to make all the black parts show with the lighter outline as I'm trying to get them to show up better when rendering instructions with LPub3D. But the red and light gray should all have the darker outline like normal.

Any help would be appreciated.

  [Resolved] Main site, including the Parts Tracker, is down
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2018-07-11, 19:02 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - No Replies

The main LDraw.org site including the parts tracker will be down until further notice. Our current host, Peeron, is changing servers, necessitating us to do so as well. We hope to have everything back up by this weekend. Thank you for your patience.

Edit: Turns out it was a technical issue. We are still moving servers but the main site is up for now. Stay tuned.
