  Sticker with other than rectangular shape
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2018-12-12, 14:31 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (28)

Hi all,

How would one create a sticker (using texture mapping) with another than a rectangular shape?
Like for example the stickers that come with set 42061


The ones that go on the sides of the bucket. I guess that could also be done with LDraw geometry.

And how about sticker no. 4 that goes on a technic panel which itself has a irregurar and curved surface.

I can create the images, but fail to see how a (and if) a sticker can be made.

Any thoughts?

  Website Theming Work
Posted by: Orion Pobursky - 2018-12-11, 18:44 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (38)

Work has begun on changing the main site theme. Right now I'm focusing on cleaning up and consolidating the code. Later I will rearrange the page elements. The end goal is to have a unified look across all LDraw websites. The main site is first since its the easiest to change. The forum will most likely be the last since the templating engine will change with MyBB 1.9 and I don't really want to duplicate effort.

If you are a website expert or otherwise, I want to hear from you. Now is the time to make suggestions, desires, ideas known. If possible, show me an example of what you mean. If there's a site you really like, let me know and I can try to incorporate the elements of the design that work well.

The current working design is here:
Article template is here:

Note: I'm focusing on layout right now, styling and interactivity will come later.

  75104 Minifigure, headgear SW Kylo Ren
Posted by: Andy - 2018-12-10, 4:00 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (2)

Hey guys! I'm new here! I am a former stop motion maker and I have plans to make Lego films in auto desk's Maya. I haven't seen any new Star Wars episode 7 and 8 material (yes, I can understand why) but I have a really funny script I want to use to kick off my channel. If any of you guys would like to help make a Kylo Ren helmet (Part 6124603) that would really help me out! I would make it in Maya but I'd like it to be more to scale so I figured I'd ask. If the helmet is too much, if anyone would like to do just his face and maybe torso? That would also be amazing. I would only need it in a few months, no deadline, I can make other films while waiting anyways. Thanks guys!

  Help a Newbie combine multiple pre-existing models $25 reward
Posted by: kevlamar - 2018-12-10, 1:51 - Forum: Help - Replies (8)

I have created several huge models (10,000+ bricks) using Lego Digital Designer. I have converted those files to .ldr files and can open them individually in LDraw. 

Here is where i need help. I want to combine many of these HUGE models into one Epic File.  In case you are wondering, i am creating a model of our hometown and am building the sections in Lego Digital Designer. However LDD will not allow me to have more than one of these behemoths in one file. it will crash if i try to combine. 

that is where i am hoping LDraw can Help me out. IS THIS POSSIBLE?

If so would someone be willing to walk me through the process. I have tried for several hours on my own but i am new to the LDraw and and unable to fine the magic command. I think it has something to do with sub-models but have not been able to import my existing models as a sub-model in a .mpd file

I will offer a $25 reward via PayPal for help with this. Awarded to the person with the clearest instructions. 

i have attached two of my large sections as attachements in case you where wondering what i am working with.

Thank you.

  .ldr files upload to OMR
Posted by: Johann Eisner - 2018-12-09, 9:40 - Forum: Official File Specifications/Standards - Replies (2)

Hi guys
And the next question:
According to 'LDraw.org Standards: Official Model Repository (OMR) Specification Version 1.0.3', each OMR compliant file consists of several .ldr files nested within a .mpd file.
What if the model is just a .ldr file.
Does the single .ldr file have to be nested into a .mpd file? --> like the attached .mpd file
Or may the single .ldr file be uploaded?
If the .ldr file is allowed to be taken, how must the header look like?
Does the header have to start according to the .ldr specification with 0 FILE .... ( like the attached .ldr file)
or is it allowed to be built like a .mpd?

  LDraw.org 2018-02 Parts Update Now Available
Posted by: Chris Dee - 2018-12-08, 19:52 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (17)

The 2018-02 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 1019 new files to the core library, including 540 new parts and 21 new primitives.

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

You can preview the new parts in 2018-02 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.

Question Moved to files OMR compliant ?
Posted by: Johann Eisner - 2018-12-08, 16:21 - Forum: Official File Specifications/Standards - Replies (4)

After searching some files, I had errors with the MPDCenter that the file is not OMR compliant.
The reason of the error is that the file contains ~ moved to ... parts.
Have now read in the OMR definition the seventeenth time but found nothing about ~moved to files.

Question: Can a OMR compliant file now contain ~ moved to files or not?

Regards Johann

  22407 Minifigure, Weapon Axe Head with Bar
Posted by: Ryan Hicks - 2018-12-07, 16:25 - Forum: Part Requests - Replies (4)

Helloo LDraw,

Part request for
"Minifigure, Weapon Axe Head with Bar"

Of interest as this part is being used in the nose of the upcoming Speed Champions McLaren Senna to pretty cool effect. I'm not seeing the part in LDD, but Mecabricks does have it. Haven't seen any other part-number cross reference so I'm pretty sure it's not in the Ldraw canon.

Thanks in advance,
