  LDCad 1.7 Alpha 2a (win+linux)
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2022-06-18, 21:12 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (23)

Hello all,

I've solved all the reported Alpha 2 issues and made a new version.

Besides bug fixes I've also added 2 new minor features to the part bin:
- Hiding of zero count items during count down mode is now optional.
- Negative searching using the '!' character, eg: "1x1 !round" to get all 1x1 parts except the round ones.

So be sure to make backups of your work before changing them with this Alpha version.

The new version can be downloaded here:

  LDCad 1.6d2 (win+linux)
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2022-06-11, 20:19 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (2)

Hello all,

I've repacked the 1.6d version to include the newest shadow file.

This will prevent potential problems loading models while using the latest LDraw library.

Wanted to do this a month ago, but totally forgot Blush

The only change over 1.6d is the shadow, no binary changes.

Therefore you could also just update the shadow.sf file

  1.8.57 Released (CC BY 4.0, subfile selections, file location for linked inlining)
Posted by: Nils Schmidt - 2022-06-06, 8:31 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (15)


another month, another LDPE release.

[Image: imgDuke2.png]

As always, you can download LDPE from this page:



(3 new features and 2 bug fixes)

With this release you will be able to...

  • ...use the upgraded "!LICENSE" / "!HISTORY" meta command to support the new CC BY 4.0 agreement.
  • ...know the name of the selected subfile if there is only one subfile selected (shown in status bar).
  • ...benefit from the fact that linked inlining will happen in the folder the current file was saved in (except for project files).

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. Rare error while creating a subfile from 3D selection.
  2. "Show selection in 3D view" selected vertices from non-subfile surfaces and lines.

The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, something can go wrong in about 140.000 lines of code.

Installation on Windows:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_win32_x64.zip
  2. Run LDPartEditor-1.8.57.msi
  3. Start LDPartEditor from the start menu
Installation on Linux:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_linux_x64.zip
  2. Install ldparteditor_1.8.57-1_amd64.deb
  3. Start LDPartEditor from the menu or via launcher
Installation on Mac OS X:

  1. Download and extract LDPartEditor_mac_x64.zip
  2. Mount LDPartEditor-1.8.57.dmg
  3. Drag LDPartEditor.app to the Applications folder
  4. Copy ldparteditor.sh to your home folder
        4a. Open a Terminal.app and run ./ldparteditor.sh
        4b. Or open a Terminal.app and run /Applications/LDPartEditor.app/Contents/MacOS/LDPartEditor

I listen carefully to your requests and possible complaints. Please leave me a message, with your thoughts and wishes to further improve the software.

LDPE is a 3D CAD application: The overall system requirements are higher. While I recommend to use a powerful 64-bit multicore system, it could be possible, to run LDPE on older machines as well.

System Requirements:

Minimum System Requirements:
  • OpenGL 2.1 compatible Graphics Card
  • Operating System (64-bit): Windows [7 or newer], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon II (>2.0Ghz)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video-Memory: 1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 100 MB
Recommended Requirements:
  • Operating System (64bit): Windows 7,8,10, Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • OpenGL 3.3 compatible Graphics Card
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor with 4 cores (or more)
  • RAM: >4 GB
  • Video-Memory: >1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 512 MB
  • For a faster start, LDPartEditor and the LDraw™ library should be installed on an SSD.

  trixBrix Switch
Posted by: Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen - 2022-05-31, 5:51 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (3)


I have for a while now moved away from original LEGO Train tracks as the turns er too narrow for my larger steam trains.
Therefor i would very much like some om trixbrix parts to be made in ldraw, so i can do instructions with them.
In partucular i would like their R104 switch both left and right.
If possible also their ballast part that goes with the above switches.

Last I would also like to have made their double crossover R104
Also here if possible including their ballast part for this crossover.

An updated version of the LDraw All-In-One-Installer, in short AIOI, containing the LDraw Parts Library update 2022-03 with 563 new files (including 328 new parts and 18 new primitives) has been released.

The AIOI supports Windows XP (Home and Pro), Windows Vista or higher (all versions). There are two installer files available: Use the 64 Bit AIOI to install all the main 64 Bit programs, while the older 32 Bit programs are offered in a separated .exe file. Please note that only the 64 Bit version contains the LDraw Parts Library. If you want to use the 32 Bit programs it is mandatory that the library has been installed previously. The Installer will NOT run on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT Ver 4, 2000, or XP below SP2.

It contains the following changes:

* Update to Parts Library 2022-03
* Update to MLCad.ini 2022-03
* Update to Offline Parts Catalog 2022-03

You can download the AIOI from:

Many thanks to all the programmers who contributed to this release.

  MLCad.ini 2022-03 update now available
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2022-05-30, 8:35 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - No Replies

Hi folks,

I just updated the MLCad.ini file accordingly to the latest LDraw.org parts update 2022-03. The .ini file defines (among other things) the parts available in MLCad's, LEOCad's and Bricksmith's minifigure generator.

Download the file from my website: http://www.holly-wood.it/mlcad/mlcad_ini-en.html

Bye, w.
