2340p030 - Help - Primitives breaking in Blender import - ShireBrickz.com - 2019-09-30

Hi Team,

I've created Tail 2340p030 but the surfaces seem to lose their relationships (?) when imported to Blender using the LDR import plugin.

The part was created using LDPE to create left and right templates for use in LDPC, then patterns created. These left and right patterns where then added to the subfile of 2340s01.

[attachment=4060] [attachment=4061]

The created part imports into Stud.io correctly but subsequent export/import into Blender seems to break the part apart.

[attachment=4062]

What term/technique have I overlooked or misunderstood?

I've actually created all of the "Canada" series printed bricks and am happy to submit them once this piece is complete.

Thanks in advance.
Adam

Please, define Blender add-on you use?

I'm using the TobyNelson plug-in (TobyLobster I assume).

Hello Adam;

Welcome to LDraw!

You did not use the sub-part 2340s01.dat in your code.

May be, this could solve your problem.

Try to do so.

Further more - I suggest the usage of primitives for your pattern.

Something like that:

1 4 3 35 -15 0 1 0 -2.7 0 0 0 0 2.7 48\2-4ring6.dat
1 9 3 35 -15 0 1 0 -17.461323 0 7.232717 7.232717 0 17.461323 48\1-4ndis.dat

1 10 3 39.536 -23.987 0 1 0 -.23 0 .11 -.11 0 -.23 3-8ndis.dat

The leave itself can be splitted to half in it's Y-symetry line and subparted and simple mirrored

have a good time here

Thanks so much.
I ended up playing around a little and settled on the following code

1 16 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 s\2340s01.dat
1 16 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 s\canadalogoleft.dat
1 16 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 s\canadalogoright.dat

Another part authoring technique learnt, thank you.
