  LDCad scripting and macros
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2019-05-18, 20:18 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (10)

Hello all,

I'm working on some new scripts for the upcoming LDCad 1.6c release.

Just some stuff I think could be useful or people asked about through emails.

To get some of them working I also expanded the api with minor new functions etc.

Anyhow just wanted to give everyone the opportunity to request additional scripts/macros/api extensions.

Things I'm working on:

- "MLCad hide" meta toggle on the selection.
- Select all "MLCad hide" content in current (non nested) model.
- Move the current building step's content down/up.

Any additional suggestions are welcome.

  Pattern Projection on a surface
Posted by: Vincent Messenet - 2019-05-15, 10:03 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (2)

I try to project a pattern on a surface using SlicerPro within LD Part Editor but I can't figure out how it works while it seems to me I follow the instructions.

In attachment to this thread you will find my file and I try to project the plan pattern on the red squares. So I select the whole pattern in a view, then I control click on a view set on Top, I open the tool SlicerPro and click on OK then a progress bar appear which goes quickly and nothing appear.

Could you please let me know what I am doing wrong?

  From LDD to Stud.io - is it worth it?
Posted by: TrevorNoah - 2019-05-12, 6:05 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (1)

I found LDD a couple weeks ago. Took a few minutes to figure it out, but I've since been building a custom modular building that I've had in mind, and I'm really enjoying it. I saw a mention of Stud.io today so I downloaded it and imported my LDD file. Immediately notice how different the interface is. And the rendering, not only as a rendered image, but also in build mode. It's much nicer to look at. The second thing I notice is all the parts missing from my MOC! It seems LDD let me go off range with some pieces and/or colors of pieces (I guess.) So... I'm contemplating making the switch to Stud.io and I guess I'm asking if it's worth the new learning curve. Also... I couldn't seem to Google my way to answer this question so I'll ask here: what is the easiest/best way to resolve the missing parts? I think that if I could get my MOC back to whole, I might carry on in Stud.io. Thanks in advance for any feedback and advice!https://redtube.onl/ https://beeg.onl/ https://spanktube.vip/spankbang/

I am trying to design a floatplane that would use these hulls as its pontoons, and would be most grateful to have these parts available in LDraw.

A day or two ago, when I wanted to upload a new model to my Gallery at Brick Link, the Studio application updated.  And ever since, I have not been able to upload my files any longer to my gallery there.  

Any one here have any ideas as to what is wrong, please?

  Boost Hub Part
Posted by: wol bar - 2019-05-09, 22:46 - Forum: Help - Replies (10)


I can't find the Boost Hub Part that is supposed to be in the unofficial parts directory of Ldraw. I know that it's there, just can't see it in Ldraw.

Checked the environment variable, noticed that there was an error so changed it from C:\Users\Public\Documents\Ldraw
to C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Ldraw,  but no difference. I wonder where LDRAWDIR is set? 

I checked the MLCAD.ini file and it looks ok. Search directories are fine.

Not sure how to get the BOOST Hub into the model. Any help appreciated.

I downloaded "parts/26910.dat
Electric Power Functions 2.0 Boost Move Hub"  into the official parts directory and unofficial and I still cannot see the hub. I found this part on http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptscan.cgi?q=boost

  Using Anton Raves library with PovRay 3.7
Posted by: Kelly - 2019-05-09, 19:57 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (2)

Twelve years ago I spent over 2 years making a lego movie with Pov-Ray 3.1 and Anton's libraries.  I made the original Alpha Team characters and based the movie on them.  Now I would like to go at it again and using 3.7, I'm struggling to get those libraries working again.  I hate to start over with some of the other tools I see mentioned, so is there some way I can get everything working with 3.7?

Yes I could go back to 3.1, but the render times with the 64-bit version are so much faster, and I'm sure there's other features I haven't even had time to explore.

The error I'm seeing in minifigs_official.lib implies that "yellow_tex" isn't defined, even though it's defined in materials.lib, which I include before I include minifigs_official.

  Train Front 37493/6226707 in set 60197
Posted by: Pierre - 2019-05-07, 20:26 - Forum: Part Requests - No Replies

Dear parts makers,

I couldn't find this part anywhere in the database or parts tracker, so I assume it is not in production. Is anyone working on this already, and if not, is there someone who could please work on this? I have insufficient knowledge to make my own parts.

thanks in advance
