  Bug? General forum doesn't get red New posts notification
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2011-11-01, 21:48 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (4)

As far as I can tell, posts to the "General LDraw.org Discussion" forum don't produce the red "n New Posts" text in the main forum view. I don't think I've ever even looked in that forum due to the fact that I only click on forums that have the new posts message. When I looked today, I saw 9 threads, all of which were in bold (indicating I haven't viewed them).

  Submodel not displayed in Lpub...
Posted by: Fabrice Vion - 2011-11-01, 12:32 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (5)


I need help to fix a problem in Lpub.
In my main model, I call two times a submodel. The second time it appears correctly, but the first time it doesn't appear. In fact it appears but only a few steps later after a model rotation.
In the same main model, I call two times another submodel, and it works fine !
I don't understand what happen. I tried to delete the submodel and to re-create it, but the problem is still there.

Is there anybody who have already seen that ? or know what I could have done wrong ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

  LSC Nominations not possible as posted
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2011-10-31, 17:46 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (1)

There's a post in announcements about LSC nominations, but it contains the following text:

Willy Tschager Wrote:Nominations MUST be posted in direct reply to this post to be counted, and must be online by 12:00 PM GMT November 14.

The language was obviously copied from previous nominations, which were done on LUGNET, but since the Announcements forum doesn't allow replies, it needs to be modified.

  2011/2012 LDraw.org Standards Committee (LSC) - Call for Nominations
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2011-10-31, 15:47 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (22)

Hi folks,

it has passed another year since the last election of the LDraw.org Standards Committee (LSC) were held - and again the SteerCo missed the actual deadlines :-( Nominations are now open. All nominations must be received and recorded by November 14. Elections will be held from November 17 ‘til November 30.

The LDraw.org Standards Committee (LSC) is responsible for maintaining semi-regular internal discussions on pending file format issues, the overall progress of the LDraw file format and new or proposed developments made by different LDraw-based software authors. They adopt new official standards by voting on them, and publish documentation on LDraw.org following such a decision. The LSC has documented and will document past, current and future LDraw File Formats.

To be eligible for LSC membership, per the LSC Final Draft http://www.ldraw.org/Article382.html, you must fulfil at least one of the following:

* Authored at least two LDraw parts subsequently released in an Official LDraw.org Parts Update
* Served as a reviewer on the Parts Tracker through at least 2 official parts updates, and posted at least 5 reviews in at least two updates since their initial participation
* Authored a software program that is compliant with either the LDraw 1.0.0 specs or another spec published by the LSC
* Petition for nomination as an LSC candidate approved by 2 current LSC members
* Petition for nomination as an LSC candidate made to the LSC by at least 5 others eligible to be LSC candidates

People can either self-nominate or nominate someone else. When nominating, please reference the person’s eligibility from the list above. For the LSC there is non need that another member of the community seconds the nomination.

Nominations MUST be posted in direct reply to this post to be counted, and must be online by 12:00 PM GMT November 14.

Voting for the elections will begin November 17, and end November 30. The LSC will officially change over on December 15th, giving time to transition newly elected members into the committee.

Only LDraw organization members are permitted to vote in this poll. If you are not registered as a member of the organization and would like to join, follow the instructions at the bottom of this page: http://www.ldraw.org/Article283.html

  Online Renderer
Posted by: Jamie B. - 2011-10-30, 15:47 - Forum: Rendering Techniques - Replies (3)

Given that browsers now support WebGL (Firefox, Chrome, and Safari), you could do a browser-based part and model viewer.

Would anyone be interested in that?

  Parts to be renamed?
Posted by: Tim Gould - 2011-10-30, 11:08 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (9)

Hi All,

I was looking for the 6 x 6 tile today (6881a/b) and was surprised to see it wasn't in the library. Or rather, after doing some sniffing, I discovered it wasn't a 'tile'. It was a 'Scala tile'.

This seems rather wrong to me and got me wondering if there weren't other parts with strange naming. Does anyone else know of any?

Perhaps someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I believed that part names should generally be descriptive of form and function, not of the line they appear in (aside from prints).


PS. Which isn't to single out the part authors. It is the name Peeron uses which are traditionally the source of LDraw parts. I simply think it is wrong for LDraw.

  New LDraw All-In-One-Installer tutorial
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2011-10-28, 11:50 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - No Replies

Hi folks,

I've just uploaded a new tutorial to my site:


which will give you an insight on the LDraw All-In-One-Installer. In sync I've added language support for Dutch and Spanish, compiled by Jaco van der Molen and Jetro de Château. 2011-01 v2 now supports silent install/uninstall and I've added LeoCAD as optional editor.

My thanks go to the people who ave helped me out on this.

I work on this part. It is converted from LDD. I need edges and condlines. In shape from LDD they are not great, and I played around with edger2 tool, but didn't get a great result.
