  UTF8 encoding bug in part u588p02c03.dat?
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2011-12-01, 23:15 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (7)

During fixing of utf8 handling in LDCad I stumbled on this part: "u588p02c03.dat".

One of the keyword lines seems mangled. Even in utf8 editors (it comes out partly Korean or something).

This can't be right?

The line above it (with elephant etc) does contains valid utf8 coding though.

  [Sticky] Parts for urgent review
Posted by: Tim Gould - 2011-12-01, 22:50 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (39)

I've made this a sticky thread. Please add parts whose absence makes a major gap in the library. Try to stick to older parts (more than 1 year on the PT) but if a new part is important and appears to be overlooked (eg. new basics like tiles, plates and bricks) add it too.

And for those who wish to help review but don't know how, try this tutorial.

For example:

The 4.5V and 12V have been on the PT for a long time.

  Thanks for this forum!

I must admit that I was skeptical to move discussions from Lugnet/cad to here, but seeing the huge activity here now, and all the new guys appearing, it was a wise move! So many thanks to all involved in the creation of this new LDraw home!!!

  forum notification e-mail
Posted by: Steffen - 2011-12-01, 14:44 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (4)

Currently, the forum notifications via e-mail have "webmaster@ldraw.org" as sender.
I'd like to ask if this could be changed to something more specific/simpler, like e.g.
ldraw.org Forums Notification
LDraw.org Forums
LDraw.org Forum Notificator Script
LDraw.org Forum Notificator

That would allow me to better sort my e-mails.

The general sender webmaster@ldraw.org should IMHO not be used for this specific task.

(Of course, the "From" text setting can be configured independently from its associated mail address,
so of course the mail address behind the From: text can stay as it is now.
I just want the displayed text in the notification mails changed to something more specific.)

  Applescript droplet to generate png previews using LDView
Posted by: Ramón Figueroa-Centeno - 2011-12-01, 10:01 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - No Replies


The following saved as an application from the AppleScript Editor generates png previews:

property ldview : "/Applications/LDView/LDView.app/Contents/MacOS/LDView"

on run
    set root to choose folder with prompt "Please select folder."
end run

on open root
    if folder of (info for root without size) is true then
    end if
end open

on generatepreview(root)
    set suffix to "\\( -iname \"*.ldr\" -o -iname \"*.mpd\" -o -iname \"*.dat\" \\)"
    set root to (POSIX path of root) as string
    set root to quoted form of ((characters 1 through -2 of root) as string)
    set ldrs to do shell script "find " & root & " -type f " & suffix
    repeat with ldr in paragraphs of ldrs
            set dirname to do shell script "dirname " & quoted form of ldr
            set png to ((characters 1 through -5 of ldr) as string) & ".png"
            do shell script "cd " & dirname & "; " & ldview & " " & quoted form of ldr & " -SaveSnapshot " & quoted form of png
        end try
    end repeat
end generatepreview

It assumes that LDview is in the application folder. Modify the "ldview" property otherwise.
