  Technic Pin without Friction Ridges Lengthwise and Foil Connector
Posted by: Flore Alynne Verschelde - 2019-08-11, 6:58 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (3)

Goodmorning, I would like to request this part https://rebrickable.com/parts/49731/tech...connector/ . I've tried modelling it myself, but the software is to hard for me to use, and i can't spend a lot of time on it, because i have exams on the moment.

Thank you in advance

  Retire MPD
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-08-10, 20:53 - Forum: Official File Specifications/Standards - Replies (14)

Are there any known programs that would load a file incorrectly if it's extension was ldr but was, in fact, a mpd? If not, I move to retire the mpd file extension and have all non-part files be .ldr

Looks like LDCad is not supporting speckle colors:


though they are defined in the LDConfig.ldr?

  need help with chains
Posted by: Stefan Weinert - 2019-08-07, 15:07 - Forum: Rendering Techniques - Replies (9)


i have when loading my project in studio2.0 the problem that the chains are displayed only by gray boxes.
I use
LDCad 1.6.c
LPub3D 2.3.6 (because it is relatively stable with me)
Studio2.0 (2.0.6).

Can someone help me? I have very little idea of the internal processes of the programs, they want to use "only" ...

best regards

  Random LDPE questions
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-08-07, 0:12 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (7)

I noticed that the vertex info window only pops up when I click some of the vertex in a part. Is there a way to have it pop up all the time?

Is there a way to automatically translate the entire part or a selection to be centered on the origin?

  Unofficial vs. Official detail pages
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-08-06, 13:56 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (14)

We have detail pages for both official parts and unoffical parts, but they look similar (this is on purpose). It has been suggested that we differentiate them in some way, perhaps by some sort of color coding. I'm open to suggestions on ways to accomplish this.

Official Part

Unofficial Part

Or may be exist any over methods of making mirror of ***.dat files? This is really importanr for me, because i cant find the full part electric power 2.0 hub top. I found just the right part of it.

  Some questions about LDCad and LPub3D
Posted by: Anto - 2019-08-04, 14:51 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (12)

Hello everybody!

I have recently started to use LDCad and LPub3D to create building instructions. I read many tutorials and discussions about both softwares, but I still have some questions.

Substitute parts (LPub3D):

I have tried to use the function "Substitute part" to replace universal joints or motors, as these parts has been modified in my modelization and I have 2 different universal joints in a PLI.. I wanted to change a motor with its cable by a motor without cable for examble. The function seems to be very simple to use, but every time I try, the app crashes. Any ideas?

Group/Remove group (LDCad & LPub3D):

I have read that it's possible to use a function called "Group/Remove group" in MLCad, when you want to use a buffer exchange on more than one step. So it's possible to put a straight flex, and then to replace it by the final oriented flex some steps after. But I didn't found how it's possible to do it with LDCad. So is it really possible?

Step numbers (LPub3D):

In LPub3D, the numbers of the steps are not like in the LEGO manuals, the software counts the steps of the main model independently from the steps of the sub models. But I wonder if you have a tip to change this even if I think it's not possible. ^^

PLI and Step number placement "bug"?

Sometimes it's pretty difficult to place all the elements correctly. I would like to have the step number and the PLI at the top left of the assembly image, with the step number at the left bottom of the PLI. But sometimes there is like a "bug", it's impossible to place all the elements correctly. I have tried different setups, but sometimes, as in the example below, when I want "Step number: Left Bottom of the PLI" it is not placed correctly. How is it possible to fix that?

To have the same positions as in the LEGO manuals, what do I need to place relative to what element, and how?

[Image: 48453850246_f5c2733e80_b.jpg]

In the previous page, it worked as I wanted, and I used this:


But it doesn't work for the page above when I use the same code.
I have even tried to remove all the LPub commands for that page to restart, but I still don't reach to do as I want...

In other steps, I have done this, and it also worked perfectly:
But it doesn't work for the step above.

Is it possible to place all the elements manually on a Multi step page (using a grid to place them easily)? Actually I can place the Step number, the PLI and the Assembly image manually on a single step page, but not on a Multi step one.

Add captures - Zoom on a part of the model (LPub3D):

I don't know how, but I know it's possible, as in the page 6 you can find in this manual made with LPub3D (Available here - By Trevor Sandy). So I'm asking: how to proceed?

(I'm working with the LDView render and not the Native one)

Any help is welcomed! Big Grin
