Creating stickers - Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen - 2018-07-16

Hi
I usually create stickers to my instructions with sticker generator.
Does anyone know if there is another piece of software that can generate stickers - preferable at a higher quality than sticker generator?

Thanks

Hi Johann
Thaks for the reply.
I have looked into this program but I couldn't see how I Import a picture and convert it to a .dat file??

Hi again

There is no way to import pictures. You have to draw the pictures yourself. You can set a picture as a background and then you have to draw, draw and draw. ;-)

Is there no program that has a similar functionality as sticker generator ?
But with a better end result Smile

Hi Roland

I am currently using Scotts.
I have tried yours now but it doesn't look like MLCad og LPUB3D supports your program.

Textures are a fairly new LDraw feature so not all software supports it (yet).

LPub should support it trough LDView though.

MLCad doesn't support textures as it is not maintained anymore.

Wanted to try Scott's program. But no matter what I do, I always get the error when starting the .ocx file is missing. Although I have already copied them to the system32 folder. :-(

If you are running 64-bit Windows, you probably need to copy any ocx files to the SysWOW64 folder instead of the System32 folder. Also, you probably need to run regsvr32 from the command line:
