  Call for votes: Update sticker spec wording relating to sticker sheet color
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2019-09-13, 5:31 - Forum: Standards Board - Replies (6)

Please vote on the following change to the Official Library Specification for Sticker Parts:

Update the following text:

Quote:The sticker pattern is modelled in its true colours; they are not modifiable from the outside. All printed colours of the pattern must be matched, and the background (non-printed portion) of the pattern must use colour 16. Mimicking a colour by blending in the background colour of the part underneath using colour 16 is not allowed.


Change it to read:

Quote:The sticker pattern is modelled in its true colours; they are not modifiable from the outside. All colours of the top surface must be matched, and the back side and sides of the sticker must use colour 16. Print on a transparent plastic sticker sheet should use colour 16 on the transparent part of the top surface.

  Update sticker spec wording relating to sticker sheet color
Posted by: Travis Cobbs - 2019-09-11, 21:06 - Forum: Standards Board - Replies (3)

Currently, the following text exists in the sticker spec:

Quote:The sticker pattern is modelled in its true colours; they are not modifiable from the outside. All printed colours of the pattern must be matched, and the background (non-printed portion) of the pattern must use colour 16. Mimicking a colour by blending in the background colour of the part underneath using colour 16 is not allowed.

This proposal is to change the above text to instead read:

Quote:The sticker pattern is modelled in its true colours; they are not modifiable from the outside. All colours of the top surface must be matched, and the back side and sides of the sticker must use colour 16. Print on a transparent plastic sticker sheet should use colour 16 on the transparent part of the top surface.

  Help requests?
Posted by: AdamM - 2019-09-11, 20:30 - Forum: Help Wanted - Replies (1)

It appears to have been 12 months since the last post in this forum so I thought I would bump one up.

Are there any things needing help for the running, maintenance or development of the LDraw group at the moment?

Whilst there are many people who I am sure are more qualified than I am on here, I am still happy to assist in any way possible. Even happy if this post is enough to bump the memory of those people with specialist knowledge to help in some way.

Cheer

Adam

  LD Pattern Creator Help - Template creation
Posted by: AdamM - 2019-09-10, 22:52 - Forum: Parts Author Tools - Replies (13)

Hi LD community.

I’m after some help with either understanding the process of importing .dat files into LD Pattern Creator, or creating additional templates.

I’ve used the software for a while now and can create patterns using the supplied templates, but can’t seem to successfully create pieces which are not already supplied. Are there any suggested posts or instructions elsewhere to explain the process of importing existing .dat files from the LDRaw Parts Library and selecting the correct face. For example I can’t successfully find the large face of 1x6x5 panel (59349) to then create my pattern.

Thanks in advance
Adam

  Substitute X with N on PT
Posted by: Willy Tschager - 2019-09-10, 13:49 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (7)

This has bugged my for years - and believe me I'm still not used to it. I do not understand why X has been chosen for NEW files. F for FIX seams logical. I therefore propose to change X with N on the PT.

A minor one: if I click in the loockup box (of the "Go" button) of PT submit page, the file submit browse file window is popped.

  LDraw.org 2019-02 Parts Update Now Available
Posted by: Chris Dee - 2019-09-09, 18:00 - Forum: LDraw.org Announcements - Replies (24)

The 2019-02 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 664 new files to the core library, including 572 new parts and 18 new primitives.

After discussion on this forum we have decided to stop releasing files representing LEGO part numbers for 'Physical_Colour' parts, as other automatically updated resources (such as BrickSet), provide a better source for this information. Included in this update are re-issued versions of many of the 'Physical_Colour' parts as obsoleted files. This technique prevents existing models (which may have used these part numbers) from breaking, but prevents the files from being presented in selection lists for the creation of new models. Special thanks are due to Willy Tschager (user Holly-Wood) for taking on the tedious task of re-working these files.

Thanks are of course due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release. The small, but dedicated, band of 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 2019-02 here, and 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.

There are still a significant number of 'problem' files which fail to meet our standards and have been left on the Parts Tracker for years. As a reminder, if these have remained untouched by the original author for three months, they are considered 'fair game' for any author to correct. We would welcome any effort to reduce this backlog.

This update is appearing slightly later than the end of August target I set myself, but hopefully demonstrates that a two-monthly update schedule is achievable. I expect to issue new updates towards the end of October and in December.
