Hello,

I'm just releasing LDPartEditor 0.8.2 Smile I will try to release early and often!

You can download LPE from this page:
http://nilsschmidt1337.github.io/ldparteditor/

Make sure that you choose the right architecture for your OS and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) (64bit or 32bit).
A short guide how to check if a 64bit JVM is installed on your system is located at the bottom of this message.

  1. Download the zip-Archive
  2. Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
  3. On windows, double-click "run.bat" to start LPE.
  4. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "run.sh" to start LPE.

Please note that this software is in the beta stage. Although, LPE 0.8.2 was carefully tested and developed, there are already known issues for this release. There is a potential risk of data loss.

You can search for updates if you do the following steps:

  1. On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
  2. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "update.sh".

LPE is a 3D CAD application: The overall system requirements are higher. While I recommend to use a powerful 64-bit multicore system, it could be possible, to run LPE on older machines as well.


Changelog:

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...experience a faster program start.
  • ...use a wireframe render mode.

This release comes with 9 important bugfixes as well (including a fix for the french AZERTY keyboard).

System Requirements:

Minimum System Requirements:
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7
  • OpenGL 2.1 compatible Graphics Card
  • Operating System (32/64bit): Windows [XP; Vista; 7 or newer], Mac OS X [>=10.6], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=10.4]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon II (>2.0Ghz)
  • RAM: 2.5GB
  • Video-Memory: 512 MB
  • Free Disk Space: 100 MB

Recommended Requirements:
  • Operating System (64bit): Windows 7, Mac OS X [>=10.6], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=10.4]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to check your JVM version (32- or 64-bit):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can try on the command line:

Code:
java -d64 version

If it's not a 64-bit version, you'll get a message that looks like:

Code:
This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM. Please install the desired version.

In general, I recommend to install the 64-bit version of the JVM.

[LDPartEditor] Development News / Backlog (CSG, I18N, Custom Shortkeys, ...) - Nils Schmidt - 2015-06-24

I am currently completing a GUI translation feature to support the French and the German language.
An improved CSG triangulation algorithm is also on my list.
Next to custom shortkeys...
...and the possibility to show text line selection in the 3D editor as a selection...
...and to draw to cursor position in the text editor.


Re: [LDPartEditor] Development News / Backlog (CSG, I18N, Custom Shortkeys, ...) - Gerald Lasser - 2015-06-24

Thanks for this update Nils!
Having a cursor in the Text Editor will improve handling a lot.

What I would like to have is that when you select a vertex and do a "show in text editor", that the Text Editor switched to the "SyncEdit" mode and marked the locations where this vertex is used.


[LDPartEditor] SyncEdit on "Show In Text Editor" / CSG T-junctions - Nils Schmidt - 2015-07-08

I created a user story for your request Smile

btw: The implementation of the algorithm which corrects T-junctions inside CSG bodies is done!!

That is great news! Looking forward to it! I stopped working on the hemisphere so looks I can pick it up again!

LDPE is compatible to Windows 10. I tested it on serveral "Windows Insider" builds and I got a full license for Windows 10 Professional N (64-bit).
