  Train motor PF en PU
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2018-07-11, 10:26 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (6)

Hi all,

Since I am not a train builder I am totally new to when it comes to motorized trains.
However for a MOC I am looking in to motorizing a train now.
And I want to use either the "old" Power Functions motor or new PoweredUp motor.

Are these parts made? I cannot seem to find them.
There seem to be many different part numbers for the PF version?

So either this one:

Or this one:

Thanks so much.

  How to raise the lpub processing speed?
Posted by: jass - 2018-07-11, 6:19 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (1)

I use the latest version of lpub and found some model is very slow in the step creation, more than 10mins for adjust 1 modification.
Question 1.
I don't know if there is something wrong in my ldr or mpd file as some models by more parts has no problem.
Question 2.
If I want to update the hardware for my PC, what's the most importantk? Memory?

Thanks for your suggestion.

  New spam strategy?
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2018-07-09, 6:02 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (2)

Is it just me, or are the new users das, bharya, and parker spam accounts with a new strategy to try to avoid being insta-deleted? Am I going to have to start completely ignoring the first posts of every new user?

  Icon for Representing Elevation
Posted by: parker - 2018-07-08, 22:06 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - No Replies

I am in need of an icon for representing an elevation display, i.e. I have a label containing an elevation in metres, and I need a small (22x22 pixel) icon next to it to indicate thats what it is.
I have tried some things, like a vertical arrow, but none quite look right.
Anyone got any ideas?
I know this isn't strictly a programming questio VidMaten, but it is about a user interface, and therefore software related (i think).

  How can I write a loader for three.js?
Posted by: das - 2018-07-08, 11:57 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - No Replies

I'd like to write an Ldraw loader for three.js; Ldraw is a text-based open format for Lego models.

I'm familiar with the format (I've implemented a parser in a different language), but I have trouble understanding the three.js loader architecture.

How is a loader structured? I've tried to go through the source code of existing ones, but I need some starting guidance.

  [LDPartEditor] 0.8.44b Beta Released (Bug-Fix)
Posted by: Nils Schmidt - 2018-07-04, 16:43 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (11)


sorry, the last release had a bug. It's fixed now.

[Image: imgDuke2.png]
As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(0 new features and 1 bug fixes)

With this release the following critical issue is fixed:

  1. Clicking on the tabs no longer changed the 3D view. / Scrolling in the text editor didn't refresh line numbers.
What will the next release 0.8.45 deliver? Usability improvements, more toolbars and shortkeys.

The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, it is still a beta version and something can go wrong in about 140.000 lines of code.

Make sure that you choose the right architecture for your OS and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) (64bit or 32bit).
A short guide how to check if a 64bit JVM is installed on your system is located at the bottom of this message.

  1. Download the zip-Archive
  2. Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
  3. On windows, double-click "LDPartEditor.exe" to start LDPE.
  4. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "run.sh" to start LDPE.
Alternatively, you can download a setup file to install LDPE on Windows.
When you install/extract LDPE on Windows you will find your LDPE configuration files under
It is not recommended to use the "update.bat" script when you installed LDPE via the setup file.
Manually install the new version instead.

Please note that this software is in the beta stage. Although, this version was tested, there are already known issues  for this release. There is a potential risk of data loss.

You can search for updates if you do the following steps:

  1. On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
  2. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "update.sh".
It is not recommended to use the "update.bat" script when you installed LDPE via the setup file.
Manually install the new version instead.

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:
  • 64-bit Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8
  • 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.
How to check your JVM version (32- or 64-bit):

You can try on the command line:

java -d64 version

If it's not a 64-bit version, you'll get a message that looks like:
This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM. Please install the desired version.

  LDCad 2.0 LDraw parser thoughts
Posted by: Roland Melkert - 2018-07-02, 18:48 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (1)

Hello all,

I'm still working on the foundations of LDCad 2 and if time permits I'll soon be starting with the LDraw parser.

So with this in mind I was thinking about possible improvements etc.

As always I'm very interested in what others would like to see supported/different from 1.6 etc.

Things I want myself:

100% official file format support. (mpd/headers/textures/etc)
All the defacto unofficial stuff (like "0 UNOFFICIAL PART" etc)
Some experimental stuff (like "0 !DATA")
LDCad groups
MLCad groups
Buffer exchange
Some or maybe even all LPub meta's.
Local color support (meaning a COLOUR meta will override colors used in following type 1 lines etc )

All input is welcome.

  93561 - Hockey minifig visor
Posted by: Jodi Rehlander - 2018-07-02, 4:19 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (2)

Hello - 
First post here, I believe I looked in all the places I could to be sure that the part I am seeking isn't already catalogued.

The part I would like to request: 
93561 - Minifig, Visor Hockey Mask

I did find this part in Lego Digital Designer and have exported the .ldr file (attached) but do not see the part in MLCad or LDraw. I am also fairly technical and would feel comfortable authoring this part if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thank you!
Jodi Rehlander
