  PT Mockup
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-06-05, 16:38 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (57)

I’ve started a mock-up of the theming for the PT:

This is a static page (i.e it won’t change based on votes, etc.)
I chose this one because the link in the comments is breaking my formatting.

I’d like feedback from the regular PT users.

After seeing this in LEGO House: https://photos.app.goo.gl/bAAXaEebvrTMJfZZ6... I feeled urged to create a LDraw model!

I was too lazy to create a flexed axle template for LDCad so I used 12L rigid tubing instead, but it does the job!

  Minutes from the LDraw dicussions in Billund
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2019-06-04, 16:52 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - No Replies

As promised, here are minutes from the informal discussions during the Billund meeting. Per our bylaws, in person meetings are always informal and no policy can be formally determined. Discussion on some of these topics has already begun here on the forum. If you see a topic that you wish to discuss further, please start a new thread in the appropriate forum.

 - Shift stuff that changes (like tutorials and third part software) to the wiki
 - Re-enable account requests to cut down on wiki spam (this is done)
 - The wiki is easy to edit for a reason. IF you find a topic that need work, edit it. We can always revert if it doesn't work. Be bold

LDraw.xml (for LDD)
 - Contact Silvan to mirror ldraw.xml on ldraw.org. Make is process automated

 - Make more moderators (this is done)

Main site
 - Change news to a "give back" (this is done)
 - Fix the images on the front page
 - Move tutorials to wiki

 - The held part backlog is a concern
 - Periodically have a "held parts" week where those who want to will focus on held parts
 - Shorten the time between a hold and when a part is open to everyone to edit to 3 weeks (instead of 3 months)
 - More clearly delineate when someone can become a part reviewer
 - Have a header edit admin and a parts release admin (could be the same person) to alleviate the amount of things Chris is responsible for.
 - Have an online parts validator (Santeri has this mostly complete)
 - Online multi word part search of both the PT and official library (this can probably be done from within the main site CMS)
 - Part review tutorial/checklist
 - What should cause a hold/warning?

 - Make plaques for the JJMA recipients who didn't get one (either ask Tim Courtney for design or take an existing plaque to a shop)

I may have left some stuff out. The others who were there can chime in. As a reminder, please start a separate thread for things you may wish to discuss.

  pattern coordination and optimization efforts
Posted by: tatubias - 2019-06-04, 14:36 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (1)

Guys as you know there are several missing patterns, to coordinate the effort and make it more useful the work we do.

I noticed that when you look a brick like 3010 on rebricable it says the amount of sets that its being used with its pattern. As an example, Some patterns are used in 1set other like in 10

So i was thinking in asking them to send us a list of the most used bricks with patterns and if they are listed or not at ldraw .

1 we will know which bricks patterns are missing
2 we will be willing on the most used patterns and not on a single brick that was only used at 1980 in 1 set.
3 save time will looking what to draw and dont re make a pattern that was all ready on the ldraw gallery.

This can be done by hand but it's a hard work, as rebricable or otger sites has this information on their db may be easy for them to send us the list.

This also can be extended for the bricks minifgs, 3d objects that are not yet available at ldraw.

File example
Brick number; amount of set, ldraw available?,brick descrption, url on the site.... Etc

Probably some of you may know the owners of those sites they may be able to help.

  Certain parts not showing in LDCad part bin?
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2019-06-04, 10:54 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (7)

Hi all,

For quite some time now I was wondering why these parts do not show up in the Plate category part bin in LDCad:

14418 Plate 1 x 2 with Socket Joint-8 with Friction
14419 Plate 1 x 2 with Socket Joint-8 with Friction and Ball Joint-8
14704 Plate 1 x 2 with Socket Joint-8 with Friction Centre

It turns out these are located in the "Hinge plates and tiles" part bin.

Their counterparts like 14417 Plate 1 x 2 with Ball Joint-8 on Side and 22890 Plate 1 x 2 with Ball Joint-8 on End do show up in the Plates bin.

So either all go to "Plates" or all go to "Hinge Plates"

Can somebody either confirm, agree, disagree or clarify?

  Plasticant alternate library.

I found this set in a garage sale, and it seemed worth creating a few LDraw parts.... https://photos.app.goo.gl/t3ztqove4GUqPZeg6
... Then I saw that Mikeheide already did that. Unfortunately I was not able to find a valid link to that library. Help ?
