Adding new option to LSynth - Citra Susanto - 2017-07-05

Hi,

This is my first time here. I am looking for a way to add additional option for LSynth in MLCad. Iam trying to add WeDo2.0 Power Functions Cable into the current configuration. I managed to design the .dat file by modify LS70.dat and save it as LS72.dat. Now, i would like to add the new option whenever i am using the MLCad.

Here is the thing i have tried:

  1. I add some additional code for Lsynth.mpd from “C:\Program Files (x86)\LDraw\LSynth\bin”. For the record, I did not know where to place the “ldr” file which written there. I search my whole computer for similar file, I did not find it.
    [attachment=2844]
  2. I tried to modify MLCad.ini from "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Ldraw"
    [attachment=2845]
Result: I was not able to achieve what i want. If there is anything you could help, Please let me know.

Cheers,
Citra S

You're looking in the wrong folder for MLCad.ini. Try:

C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\Ing. Michael Lachmann\MLCad

For the record - Wedo 2 cable segment exists in LDraw official library as u9218.dat

Maybe you should give a try to LDCad? cable creation is sooo easier than with MLCad/Lsynth combo... see my Milo model here:

Hi Philo,

I did not know there is an official library exist for Wedo 2 cable segment. Thank you so much to let me know that but since i modify it already might as well using it.

I will give a try to LDCad but there is a lot to learn. I am creating the model to be converted to LPub3d with help of "BUFEXCHG". Is that possible to do with LDCad or there is anyway similar to "BUFEXCHG" for LDCad?

Thanks

Yes, BUFEXCHG is supported by LDCad (though I haven't yet used it!)

Oh, that's great. Will do the research for that. Thank you so much
