  Help with unofficial parts in LDcad
Posted by: End Unsure - 2018-05-03, 3:12 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (3)

Is there a way to install unofficial parts in LDcad without downloading the entire unofficial parts library?

I have the parts I want, I tried putting them in folder structures like

/Unofficial/ldraw/Parts (as it is in the 'Complete' Zip that LDcad draws from)

I went into LDcad, Preferences, search and added the new folder/s (I tried many different file structures) as described here:
http://www.melkert.net/LDCad/faq#faq_unoflib

I restarted and all that, I just cant seem to have the program find these parts, to see if it has them I open LDcad, go to search and search the exact part numbers as their files are named such as
"24196"

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

  Looking for a parts author to team up with.
Posted by: End Unsure - 2018-04-29, 18:44 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (8)

Hey all, so I really love Ldraw and this community and I'd like to help it out some as well as get some parts I've been looking for. Thing is, I am in a truck 24/7 and really don't have the time to learn to be a parts author, plus a bouncing mouse is hard to work with.

What I do have (well, I will soon) is a little spare cash, My idea is to buy some sets off ebay and have them mailed to a parts author for replication in Ldraw who would then mail the sets back to me. I figure this is important because a lot of the parts I'm interested in would need a 3d scan or being able to work with them directly.

Things like: 

Stingray helmet
Sting ray disk decal designone
Elves Dragon and animal heads

There's sure to be a lot to work out in order to make this work so I thought I'd get started on it before I was ready to buy some sets. Should be a month or so before I can start doing this.

Because I'm opting to send a few hundred dollars worth of parts to a relative stranger, I would need the community to vouch for any parts author interested in working on this. With one exception, my preferred choice is [b]Philippe Hurbain[/b]. As the administrator of this site and a man who has already volunteered his free time to make me, a relative stranger some parts I feel if this idea has any hope of working then he's gotta be in good standing.

That being said, I wouldn't even humor this idea except that everyone here seems to be trustworthy, the community seems like a place of people who like to help out. Anyone interested in this idea should respond so we can work something out.

I should mention that because these sets can be pretty pricey, I'm not really volunteering to buy sets on request. I just want to fill out some classic sets from my childhood and some of the new ones I think are really cool.

Thank you, anyone who takes interest in advance.

  LDCad Part Organization
Posted by: End Unsure - 2018-04-29, 18:23 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (3)

just a note to any one who is involved with the construction/maintenance of LDCad. The friends and Elves heads are found divided between two directories 'Figures' and 'Mini-Figures', if there is a way to put them in one category (hopefully with relative ease) I'd appreciate knowing it or having it in the next version, either or.

Personally I think they make more sense in figures than mini-figures given their unique design but that's just me.

Thank you for your time and work on such a great program, I love LDCad.
