LDD to MLCAD file conversion help - Luis - 2017-03-25

Hello,

I am new to this community and to LDraw, MLCAD, etc.

I downloaded both the LDraw complete installer and LDD. I am trying to convert my design on LDD (.lxf) to MLCAD (.ldr), I think. However, when I do this, LDD gives me an error message: "Warning: Unable to export model" 

I am confused as to why I can't export the LDD model to MLCAD. Any help is greatly appreciated. 

LDD file attached. (Hopefully I did it right and it works).

Thanks! 
Smile

Welcome here, Luis!
No idea... is it possible that you share your model file to make tests?

Sorry, I'm new at this. What do you mean "to make tests"? Also, by sharing do you mean I share my model on the forum? Thanks again.

I meant i'd like to try here to export your file to LDraw to understand what could get wrong. So if you can post your lxf file to this forum as attachment or as a link...

I don't know how to attach the file. I tried using brickshelf.com, but they never sent me an account confirmation email. Can you walk me through uploading the LDD file?

Click on "Browse" button (bottom left of reply window), navigate on your computer to find your file, then when you're done click on "Add attachment" (bottom right of reply window). Then "Post Reply"...

I tried, but it gives a message saying "Please correct the following errors before continuing: The type of file that you attached is not allowed. Please remove the attachment or choose a different type."

Ah - yes, indeed, forum doesn't allow .lxf files! Please compress it as a zip, or change file type (file extension) to .txt, that should work.

I think this should work: 
.zip   Lego Spaceship LDD (Final, Unfinished).zip (Size: 666.83 KB / Downloads: 5)

Doesn't seem so. Attachment seems to have no relationship with a normal LDD .lxf file... How did you got it?
