  default LDraw Wiki Skin
Posted by: Steffen - 2019-02-23, 9:10 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - No Replies


can someone switch the default skin of our Wiki
back from current "Chameleon" to "Vector", please?
(see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Sk...for_a_wiki how to do it)

"Chameleon" looks ugly + confusing to me, and
even Wikipedia still sticks with "Vector", see

  Inconsistancy in panels description
Posted by: Jaco van der Molen - 2019-02-22, 11:17 - Forum: Parts Authoring - Replies (3)

Hi all,

There seems to be an inconsistency in the description of various panels.
I have a model that has a few of this kind of panels:

60581 Panel 1x4x3 with side flanges
87544 Panel 1x2x3 with side supports with hollow studs
87552 Panel 1x2x2 reinforced with hollow studs

Is it me, or do we mean the same with "side flanges", "side supports" and "reinforced"?

IMHO we should choose either one of these 3, preferably "reinforced" I think.

Also the "with hollow studs" is missing from 60581 Panel 1x4x3.

Do we agree to rename the description or is there really a reason to have 3 descriptions for the same thing?

  A way of converting Stud.Io parts to ldraw
Posted by: Warren Elsmore - 2019-02-20, 22:57 - Forum: LDraw File Processing and Conversion - Replies (2)

I'm not sure if anyone has tried this before - I searched but couldn't see anything -  but it might be helpful!

My wife needed 18970 (2x2 plate with scallop) in an ldraw model and it's not in the official or unofficial part tracker. It is, however, in Bricklink so I thought it might be in Stud.Io... and it is. So, to make a quick and dirty conversion, I 

  • Opened up Stud.Io and inserted the part, then exported it as a Collada file.
  • Next, a quick trip to www.meshconvert.com to export it out as .ply
  • Now, I opened up the .ply in lsculpt* and selected the mesh *only*. No plates export
  • I had to fiddle with the scale a little (8x, in meters worked for some reason)

Hey presto - an .ldr file which I could rename to .dat and put into my unofficial library. 

Now, this almost certainly is not a good approach, and I've no idea on the licensing of Stud.Io parts designs - but it's certainly quick and it does work. Just in case anyone else needs to try it!

*Full disclosure: I used a version of lsculpt that is not generally available. I had a custom version of lsculpt written for our company which we are not intending on releasing for various reasons. But, it's based on the same underlying code so this should still work....

49533, LEGO Windscreen 3 x 6 x 1 Curved with Decoration

This appears to be a patterned version of 62360. I can probably provide a picture once I open the actual set it comes in.

  What are the applications available for Mac OS X users ?
Posted by: Gianluca - 2019-02-17, 14:14 - Forum: LDraw Editors and Viewers - Replies (2)

Hi all,
it's only a couple of week that I've discovered this fantastic world of LEGO CAD and related applications.
But I also found that there is little choices for who like me only posses an OS X computer :-(

What I found so far is LDD (not officially maintained anymore and not LDraw compatible), BrickLink Studio (that doesn't support retina displays) and LeoCAD (that it failed to load what I needed, and no snap feature).

So, I was wondering if I'm missing something out there for OS X ... and if it's truly the truth that most of the LDraw community is working on Windows only ;-)

  How can I change my displayed name
Posted by: Gianluca - 2019-02-15, 21:05 - Forum: Website Suggestions/Requests/Discussion - Replies (4)

Hi all,
I've made a mistake during registration and I may inverted first name and last name ... so, my name is Gianluca and my last name is Massera.
I'd like to change my profile to display "Gianluca" and not "Massera" as it is now, but didn't find any option in the Profile section to change the name :-(

Can someone help me on that ?
