Something along the lines of an svg to LDraw would be an interesting addition Smile

If anyone wants to pick up where I left off on SvgToDat, contact me. See here for more info:

One would select a color, then click in an empty area of the pattern, and LDPC would fill that area with triangles of selected color. Triangulation would extend on all area, bounded by template lines and existing triangles. If only for this, it would be very useful to fill-in background of a pattern!

Looks like we identified what's needed most:

I agree. That would be an excellent feature.
Adding the uncoloured background is the boring part of a pattern.


Crash on export - Nils Schmidt - 2017-07-01

I received a bug report from Philo about a crash on export.
Does anyone else noticed similar issue?

I've only made some flat surfaces so far. No crash.

The crashes I got were with flat patterns too. Maybe it's something on my machine (Nils couldn't reproduce the issue either)

I'm so sorry, I just discovered I've been using 1.6.2. The new version was installed in another folder.

I'll try to make some patterns asap.


RE: [LDPatternCreator] Problems with export to dat file naming - Philippe Hurbain - 2017-07-04

I have a few issues related to file naming when doing an "export as dat" (on Win 7):
- If I import a dat file a dat file as projection data, add pattern on it then do an "export as dat", proposed filename is the name of file (*) used as projection data. Not a good idea as this leads to overwriting shape file with pattern file. (*) Actually, it's not the file name but the file in "name" field of projection data file header.
- When doing an "export as dat", LDPE properly browse current work folder, but the proposed file name contains a full path to LDPE executable, eg. "C:\Program Files (x86)\LDPatternCreator\toto.dat". If I don't pay attention and hit save button, system proposes to save in my default documents folder instead...
- but the thing that really drives me mad, is that if by misfortune the projection data file carries a header with subfile type in header, when I export .dat in my "work" folder as "titi", it silently creates a file "titis01" in "work\s" folder instead !?! No, if I browse to a folder and give a file name, I want this file and folder to be used...

I was able to reproduce this issues and fixed them today.


RE: [LDPatternCreator] Release 1.6.5 (Bug-Fix) - Willy Tschager - 2017-07-07

Bug of the day:

* Add an Oval. While it is still selected scale it and you will see that the vertex on the very left stays still deforming the two aatached triangles of the oval. To avoid this you have to deselect your newly created oval and relect it again, but ...
* ... when you group this triangles into a primitive and delete it afterwards the vertex on the very left will remain and cannot be selected or deleted.
