  MLCad.ini 2018-01 update now available
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2018-02-06, 0:46 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (8)

Hi folks,

I just updated the MLCad.ini file accordingly to the latest LDraw.org parts update 2018-01. 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.

  Subsurface scattering
Posted by: Michael Horvath - 2018-02-05, 2:06 - Forum: Rendering Techniques - No Replies

POV-Ray now supports subsurface scattering. Does anyone have any ideas on appropriate values? Has anyone played around with these settings before?

  we need a "comments" section at the OMR
Posted by: Steffen - 2018-02-02, 21:43 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (12)

I spotted various errors in various OMR files at omr.ldraw.org.

Currently there is no way to report or correct them.

I would love if we could add (even a simple mechanism would suffice) something which allows us to correct OMR errors.

This could be
- a comments section below a displayed set which allows to add remarks
- an upload button which allows to upload a corrected version of the file
- a "parts tracker"-like mechanism which tracks OMR models and allows reviewing them
- a button to send a message to the author
- or whatever else.

Currently, I feel forced to be very passive over there, seeing all the problems, but no way to correct them.

What can be done? What do others think?

  Thumbnails by LDView
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2018-02-02, 12:48 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (10)

Hi all,

When I installed LDView I configured it to generate the thumbnails in Windows Explorer.
Lately when opening folders with LDraw files Explorer crashes almost every time.
How do I stop LDView from generating thumbnails?
This is getting very annoying (sorry about that Travis ;-)

  Rename part
Posted by: Michael Horvath - 2018-02-02, 3:38 - Forum: Parts Authoring - No Replies

I think that part 3044a should be renamed from "Slope Brick 45 2 x 1 Double with Hollow Bottom" to "Slope Brick 45  2 x  1 Double without Centre Stud".

This would make it be consistent with parts 3040a, 3065, 3066, 772, etc.

Hopefully this is the right spot to post to get these things fixed.  Thanks

  LDraw.org 2018-01 Parts Update Now Available
Posted by: Chris Dee - 2018-01-30, 21:28 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (4)

The 2018-01 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 267 new files to the core library, including 171 new parts and 20 new primitives. This update also fixes some minor problems with the 2017-01 update issued in December 2017, as reported here, here and here.

Thanks are of course due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release, and to the reviewers who also play an important role in keeping files moving through the Parts Tracker.

You can preview the new parts in 2018-01 here, download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates... to install the update.
