I'd like to request part 93088 (Dog, Friends, Puppy, Standing) with following patterns for Friends OMR project

93088pb01 Dog, Friends, Puppy, Standing with Bright Light Blue Eyes, Black Nose and Mouth and Reddish Brown Patch and Spots Pattern (Charlie / Jacky)

(Print only on the face)

It will be highly appreciated, but of course not in a hurry.

  LDView 4.4 Beta 2 test release
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2020-09-07, 20:10 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - No Replies

I have posted a test release for LDView 4.4 Beta 2 to GitHub:


This release contains bug fixes since Beta 1, in addition to adding check boxes to the Windows Save Snapshot dialog to disable usage of Framebuffer Object and/or Pixel Format.

The ChangeHistory.html file that is included in the release lists all of the changes since LDView 4.3. In the macOS version, ChangeHistory.html is in the dmg. In the Windows version, ChangeHistory.html gets installed to wherever you install LDView (C:\Program Files\LDView by default). I'm actually not sure where it goes in the Linux version. Please see my Alpha 6 announcement for a list of what I feel are the most important changes relative to LDView 4.3.

Please let me know about any problems you find. The preferred way to do that is with LDView's GitHub Issues tracker. However, if you do not want to create a GitHub account so that you can do that, you can reply to this message.

  interface with LPub3D
Posted by: Cam's Bricks - 2020-09-07, 7:34 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (8)

I am hoping that someone, maybe Travis, can provide some insight on how this works. 

I have run into this issue, and also saw someone post on eurobricks about this same thing. 

LPub3D will render only the part of the assembly that is on the page. 

There are a couple of example images posted here:

I tried to edit the LDview parameter ini file that is in the configuration menu of LPub3D but I didnt get any where. 

I am hoping that adding a parameter to the LDview parameters ini file within LPub3D can force the render of the whole model regardless of the page size that is being called for. Is this even possible without having to dig into the source code of LPub3D?

Thanks in advance!

  LDraw.org 2020-02 Parts Update Now Available
Posted by: Chris Dee - 2020-09-06, 6:00 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (3)

The 2020-02 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 712 new files to the core library, including 510 new parts and 15 new primitives.

Thanks are due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release. The small, but dedicated, band of reviewers also play an important role in keeping files moving through the Parts Tracker and deserve just as much credit. 

You can preview the new parts in 2020-02 here, and download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates... to install the update.

  Popular new parts (LEGO Art, etc..)
Posted by: tom alphin - 2020-09-06, 5:02 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (7)

I encountered some fairly common (and highly sought) new parts that are missing, which sadly prevents me from adding labels for these parts to my LEGO Brick Labels collection.

I'd love to see these added to the collection!

  • 66956 - 8 sets, 5 colors.
  • 65803 - 4 sets, 1 color (LEGO Art)
  • 67139 - 4 sets, 1 color (LEGO Art)
  • 55819 - 4 sets, 1 color (LEGO Art)
Slightly older parts:
  • 27393 - 2017+ 33 sets, 7 colors.
Also love to see a final model for 20953 that correctly accepts color application. (The current one is fixed "black" for top and bottom.)

  Non-conforming parts
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2020-09-04, 21:32 - Forum: Official File Specifications/Standards - Replies (7)

I finally wrote a script to enable checking Official Parts for conformity with some of the new requirements/clarifications in the Official Library Spec.

Here's the first result:

Official Parts that have a pattern code filename but no "Pattern" in the description
(Note: I filtered out the ~Moved To and Obsolete parts from this list)

I also found a malformed HISTORY line in these 2 parts:

  LDView Crash on Library Update
Posted by: D. Kohfeld - 2020-09-04, 20:19 - Forum: All Other Programs. - Replies (9)

Hello all, long time user, first time poster.

I am using LDView 4.3 and 4.2 on two different Win7 x64 machines on different networks and I get the same behavior.  Whenever I try to update the library it gets to "Parsing Updates List" and freezes.  Once I hit the X on the update dialog it throws the "close program" dialog.  Anyone else seeing this or have any solutions?

  [LPub3D] Change multi step assem margins to ignore callouts?
Posted by: Cam's Bricks - 2020-09-04, 6:39 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - No Replies

Is this even possible? 

Right now if I create a multi step page and one of the steps has a callout, that callout is counted as the step's total area for the purposes of margin calculation. This is an issue if I want to make a second column. 

Maybe there is a way to have the default callout position, and therefore margin calculation, to be under the step image instead of to the right? Then I could used the 0 !LPUB RESERVE and/or margin parameters to better shape the way the page is laid out. 


PS has anyone heard from Trevor? I have emailed a couple times and havent seen him respond on sourceforge in months. The last login here was also in early march.

  BEAD004 From Lego Pens
Posted by: SNIPE - 2020-09-02, 8:56 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (4)


I need help finishing my implementation of part BEAD004, I need the stud to be fully hollow so a bar can go right through it and also the bottom tube is intersecting the top wall of the brick slightly.

Here is my code so far:

4 16 -15 30 -15 -15 0 -15 15 0 -15 15 30 -15
4 16 15 30 -15 12 30 -12 -12 30 -12 -15 30 -15
4 16 15 30 15 12 30 12 12 30 -12 15 30 -15
4 16 -15 30 15 -12 30 12 12 30 12 15 30 15
4 16 -15 30 -15 -12 30 -12 -12 30 12 -15 30 15
1 16 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 -7.25 0 0 0 1 stud4.dat
1 16 0 30 0 15 0 0 0 -30 0 0 0 15 box4t.dat
1 16 0 30 0 12 0 0 0 -26 0 0 0 12 box5.dat
1 16 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 stud2.dat

Here are some references to the parts design:

There is also a load of other beads that are super useful that I would like to see but thats maybe for a seperate thread, and they are too complex for a beginner like me to make in LDRAW.

Regards, Snipe.
