  How to add a "!LPUB" line the the source window
Posted by: mihao - 2021-12-04, 5:39 - Forum: Help - Replies (2)


In LDCad, is there an easy way to insert a "!LPUB ..." line at particular position in the source window? I am trying to add some "build modification" meta lines there, but couldn't find any built-in tool for that under "LDraw meta items", so thinking maybe there is a way to add a generic "!LPUB ..." line then I can update the value of the line.

  Step for moving parts
Posted by: mihao - 2021-12-03, 23:42 - Forum: Help - Replies (3)

Does anyone know if LDraw allows to create step for moving some parts (instead of adding)? 

For a complex model, it is very common to add a part (like a pin) to a component, then push it in when connecting to another component. But I haven't found a way to make such instruction in LDraw.

  Submitting Decorated Parts
Posted by: Lucas Gordon - 2021-11-30, 1:49 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (2)

These are incredibly simple decorated parts, and I needed one so I threw together both part 3068bpb1395 and 3068bpb1367 since as far as I can tell, they are identical geometrically. How would I go about submitting these, or getting the pattern to somebody who could submit?

  Cannot reliably search for even old parts in LDraw
Posted by: Timo - 2021-11-29, 17:59 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi, recently installed LDraw but I'm tearing my hair out a bit. Many common parts don't appear to show up in LDraw part search. What am I doing wrong?

[Image: ldraw-search.png]

I open new model, and on the left dialogue make sure I'm at the top of the tree, then I click the lego man icon to Search Inventory:

[Image: ldraw-search2.png]

.... then I click the filter and enter a known common part, let's say a 4x4 black plate, part number 4243819, tick all the boxes, but after clicking Accept it doesn't find the part.

Some common parts are found (such as black 1x6 plate 303226, or grey 1x4 plate 4211395), but others not (grey 4x4 plate 4243797, red 1x4 plate 371021) etc.

It doesn't make sense.

My libraries are configured as below:

I have quit & reloaded the app to update any new folder libraries/archives.

Thanks for any help.

  MPD file too big?
Posted by: Franklin W. Cain - 2021-11-27, 1:51 - Forum: Help - Replies (6)

I've been working on a very large model, and now the MPD file won't render.  
The programs now just lock up or crash.  >__<  

Is there a maximum size to an MPD file? The one I've been working on is now 150 KB... 

I've been using LDView for the most part. This program now crashes, whenever I try to open my model. 
The other programs I've tried to use do nothing. 

Please advise.
