  Lego parts coating
Posted by: Johann Eisner - 2018-09-16, 13:22 - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (1)

Hi guys

There is always the need to have Lego parts coated.
Since Chrome Brick is not always the best option, I've been looking for service providers who also coat in small quantities.
After a long search, I found the following company (see below) and had some parts of the sample coated there. I was very satisfied with the result. At all with the very "small" parts.
The following offer was offered to me (us):

Frame size is 28 x 41 Studs equals approx. 22 x 32.5 cm
Price per frame about 35 € net (about 42 € gross)
The spacing between the parts should be about the height of the part, except for narrow parts (e.g., antennas)
Before sending contact either by phone or by mail for expiration
(Delivery, color, payment, ...)

I have already sent frames and mounting material to the company.
If further material is needed, it could be that possibly a few pins or the like still need to be made available. I'm sure it will come to a positive agreement.
In the appendix still photos from the frame and from the first sample.
The equipment of the frame was only a sample, the distance and the amount can be safely optimized.
So and now the most important thing is the contact address:

Vakuum- und Plasmatechnik Flöha
Chemnitzer Strasse 18
09557 Flöha

E-Mail: info@vpfgbr.de
Telefon: +49 (0) 3726 7009 50
Telefax: +49 (0) 3726 7009 49

I would like to point out that I am neither sponsored by the above mentioned company nor receive commissions. If someone finds it anyway as advertising, then please inform the admin, so that this deletes the thread.

  Showcase models?
Posted by: Michael Horvath - 2018-09-11, 3:06 - Forum: MOCs (My Own Creations) - Replies (4)

Besides MOC Pages, is there anywhere I can showcase/organize my models that will also allow me to upload the models' MPD files? MOC Pages works but the quality of the photos/renderings is very low. Thanks.

  LPub3D v2.3 released
Posted by: David Manley - 2018-09-10, 19:43 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (2)

It seems an updated version of LPub3D has been released a few days ago. I've only just spotted this. I've just downloaded it but have not yet opened it but I think it should have addressed a number of the bugs that have been previously reported. If you use it and think you've found a bug, please help out by logging it at https://github.com/trevorsandy/lpub3d/issues

  Cannot edit links on wiki.ldraw.org
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2018-09-04, 20:05 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (4)

After getting a report from a user, I tried to fix LDView's website link on its LDraw Wiki Page (since I moved it from sourceforge to github), but this simply resulted in the following after I checked the Captcha box:

Side note: I couldn't find any obvious way on the LDraw Wiki itself to "please inform an administrator". Maybe I'm just blind.

  LDCAD compass location
Posted by: Kathleen Kampf - 2018-09-03, 19:34 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (18)

Is there a way to change the location of the compass in LDCAD? It is under my parts bin. I would like to move it to the right. It was there after it was first installed. Somehow it got moved and so did the parts bin. I got the parts bin back but it's in the way.

  Set lattitude and longitude for assebly in LPub
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2018-09-02, 19:51 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (2)

Hi all,

Would it be possible some how to set a default lattitude and longitude for the assembly images in LPub? Alas set the default viewing angle.
One can set it this up for PLI and BOM images.

I know how to do it with rotation steps, but that is kind of hideous when you use lots of submodels and other necessary rotations.

Information Help?
Posted by: Christian Murray - 2018-08-31, 21:32 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (11)

When I try to open LDraw on the latest version of Windows 7, this error appears:

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

Any help? (I'm a 64-bit user.)
Many thanks.

  Login wierdness
Posted by: David Manley - 2018-08-31, 0:06 - Forum: General LDraw.org Discussion - Replies (2)

As an FYI, for the last 24 hours I have been unable to login. Despite my user id and password being correct, it would display a message about an authentication issue. I don't have the exact text of the error message to hand.

Over the space of about 12 hours, I tried 3 or 4 times to use the "Forgot password" link. Although I followed the steps that were indicated, the (temporary) new password which was assigned failed to log me in. Finally I have been able to login today with the temporary password assigned to me 19 hours ago which did not work yesterday.

Yes I have fat fingers but I do not believe that was the cause of the issue. Someone may want to check if something untoward has been happening. Needless to say, I could not login to post a message to say that I could not login!
