Hmm, well I'm definitely stuck on authoring any complex new parts for now, but I didn't run into any great difficulty with stickers. I've used a couple of different methods, both involving Studio Part Designer. For set 5550 I applied patterns directly to the parts that are meant to receive stickers. Then I realized that a bona-fide sticker part should be its own thing, made up of a box primitive with a pattern applied to it, so I did that for the "data sheet" sticker in set 7181. (I've attached both files—would either of these be acceptable in the OMR?)

Attached to this post? Nothing is listed. But I did the 7181 sticker already:

Hmm, there should have been an edit—naturally, unless I embedded my custom part, you wouldn't know whether my model was compliant, so I removed the attachments. Looking at them now, I realize I never made them cross-compatible between Studio/Part Designer and LDraw—and indeed, the sticker (or patterned) parts I have created don't appear in LDCad. So I've got more of that process to look into; perhaps then I'll realize why most modelers avoid it. :-)

Far as I know studio uses it's own texture mapping extension on top of the LDraw part geometry.

So any textures will be lost when 'exporting' to LDraw.

Yes, texture image is Base64 encoded in Studio exported "LDraw" part file (quotes because the  is not Ldraw compliant!). See https://forums.ldraw.org/thread-23400-post-32052.html#pid32052

Looks like I forgot this model...

OK, I'll need help with that. I got the part file and the required (unofficial) subfiles, which needed another part file and additionnal required (unofficial) subfiles. Crammed everything in my MPD file, ran through MPDCenter and I got the following errors :

Error in: '42088 - s\4716s02.dat' Filename should have 3 or 4 portions.
Error in: '42088 - s\4716s02.dat' Set number from MPD file name and DAT file name does not match.

42088 - s\4716s03.dat should be s\42088 -4716s03.dat (and referred to as such).
Attached the model with correct embedding. I made embedding with LDCad, first removed "42088 - " prefix using file->cleanup detect. Then File -> cleanup -> Check "embed unofficial part AND add prefix -> use OMR.. button and key in 42088 set number.

Roland, would there be a way to properly embed part without removing prefix first?

And otherwise, I also got the buggy '42088 - s\4716s03.dat' when I tried to embed the wormscrew directly by right-click on it -> reorganize -> embed unofficial content -> fill in '42088 - ' as prefix. Roland, I guess this is a bug Wink

I'm planing to do a rework of these subfiles tonight.
