that there is a Pull Request for three.js
which adds LDRAW support.

this tweet even shows that we were not known
to the developer before Smile

  New Parts Tracker reviewers
Posted by: Chris Dee - 2018-12-21, 15:14 - Forum: Help Wanted - Replies (3)

The 2018-02 Parts Update, and many of the most recent updates, have relied heavily upon a small number of reviewers, who assess the submitted parts for completeness, accuracy, compliance to the standards and demonstrate a logical approach to naming and subparting. The numbers of certify reviews by each reviewer on files released in update 2018-02 were as follows:

  599 MMR1988
  573 MagFors
  332 Steffen
  327 Philo
   68 arezey
   52 Holly-Wood
   20 GeraldLasser
   15 BlackBrick89
    9 mikeheide
    6 mkennedy
    2 theJudeAbides
    2 dulcaoin

As with part authoring, this is not a competition, but it would help to reduce the backlog if we could get more active reviewers onboard.

There is no rigid assessment process, but we do expect candiates to have demonstrated authoring skills, show an understanding and acceptance of the Official Library Standards and be able to provide constructive feedback to authors.

Please contact me or reply here if you feel you have these abilities and are able to contribute.

  LEGO Modulex parts in LDraw
Posted by: Simon van Meygaarden - 2018-12-20, 21:45 - Forum: Help - Replies (4)

Greetings, all, I hope this is the right forum for this question.

I am searching for LDraw definitions for LEGO Modulex parts. Searching this forum, I found a thread from 2012
but the download link mentioned there doesn't work anymore.

Is there anybody who still has these files, and can help me?

To be sure, I am working with Rebrickable.com, and we are currently adding the Modulex parts to our catalog; having LDraw files for them would be great to show all the different colors, even when we don't have actual photographs.

Thanks in advance,

  remove mklist source code from official parts releases
Posted by: Steffen - 2018-12-20, 11:18 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (1)

our official parts releases (e.g. 2018-02) contain these 3 files:


, containing the source code of mklist.

I would like to request to remove these files from our releases.

The source code instead should be put to GitHub IMHO.

Posted by: Steffen - 2018-12-20, 10:53 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (1)

The main start page has a broken PT activity preview, see below.
Can something be done about that?
the link itself works fine, just the preview image is missing/broken

  requesting new category "Cardboard"
Posted by: Steffen - 2018-12-19, 22:02 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (5)

the PT has forced me to put file
into !CATEGORY Panel.

I would have better liked a separate category "Cardboard".

can that be introduced?

  Submodel, sub model or sub-model
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2018-12-19, 9:16 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (9)

Hi all,

A strange question perhaps, but what would be the best way to write:

  1. submodel (submodels)
  2. sub model (sub models)
  3. sub-model (sub-models)
In other words as one word, with a space or with a dash?

Your opinion is appreciated.

Heart Jacob Sparre Andersen has passed away
Posted by: Tim Courtney - 2018-12-18, 14:47 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (3)

It is with sadness and a heavy heart I share the news that our friend and former LDraw.org webmaster Jacob Sparre Andersen passed away Sunday after a brief but difficult battle with stomach cancer. He leaves behind his wife Christina and young daughter Lea.

If you have memories of Jacob and would like to send condolences, please share them here. After a time I'll kindly pass them to Jacob's wife Christina, and will share additional details such as a contact address or obituary site according to her wishes.

EDIT: Funeral details from Christina:

Dear All.

The funeral of Jacob takes place on Saturday, December 22 at 13:00 (cet) in Hoersholm Church,
Hørsholm Kirke
Barakstien 2,
2970 Hørsholm

You are very welcome, but I know that many of you do not come,.
Perhaps you can send him a loving thought or whatever you feel is right to do ..

Since Jacob has a huge circle of people, I have not had time to read and answer everyone yet. It will come.
Sincerely Christina



Here are a few thoughts and memories I wrote about Jacob yesterday upon learning the news:

It is with sadness and a heavy heart I learned that my collaborator and friend of twenty years Jacob Sparre Andersen passed away after a short battle with stomach cancer. My heart 
goes out to his lovely wife Christina and young daughter Lea.

Jacob and I have been in touch online since the late 1990s, when we were both active in the LDraw community and the online LEGO hobby. Jacob was one of my first international collaboration partners when I was still in my teens. Our different perspectives challenged me and spurred my personal growth.

We first met in person in 2002, when I was visiting Lars C. Hassing in Aarhus, and Jacob visited for dinner. We reconnected in Copenhagen in early 2012, after I began working for LEGO. First, he took me to a favorite cafe Obelix, and later invited me to lunch at his home. We've met for drinks, new Nordic cuisine, and walked around town a handful of times since. Most recently we grabbed burgers in Christianshavn and caught up on work, life, and my recent cross-country move to California.

Favorite memories include a tour he gave me of the Niels Bohr institute (including Niels Bohr's private office), stories of the Faroe Islands, and his ideas for extreme bicycle designs; like one that generated electricity by pedaling, which would power a motor on the rear hub through a wire instead of using a chain, just because it was possible. He got such a kick out of the idea. I'll miss meeting him for a bite and our talks about LEGO, bicycles, physics, politics, places in the world he's lived, and his work engineering complex systems. I'll remember him as kind, fair, consistent, ethical, caring, creative, passionate, interested in the world, and therefore interesting to be around.

Attached is a photo I took of Jacob at lunch in September, because I was laughing at the irony of his sweater. He said his daughter Lea got it for him, because she liked the bird. I remember how much he loved his daughter. Every time we met, he was so proud to talk about what they were building with LEGO or something she was into, like the sweater. As much as I will miss my friend, I cannot imagine the loss Christina and Lea are feeling now, and I keep them in my thoughts.
