I have a model that will need Rubber Medium Blue on a flex axle, which doesn't seem to be in the config.

Why did you name 10351 "Glitter_Trans_Green"?   Shouldn't it be "Glitter_Trans_Bright_Green"?


RE: Time for another LDConfig update? - Magnus Forsberg - 2020-05-04

Could someone please make a hi quality render using the standard brick 3003?
I want to see what the opalescent colors look like. If they have some sparkling effect at all. Neither LDView nor LDCad can show that.
It looks to me as if they both have difficulties handling the opalescent colours.

Or maybe I should ask: How do I set up POV-Ray export, in LDCad or LDView, to give me decent transparent parts?

By default LDCad only supports 'normal' transparency. But if Pov-ray can do it you can modify the colors.pov file LDCad uses as an include file to get whatever you need.

I would be interested in any improvements on transparency as it has been a troublesome issue from the start for me to get 'right'.

This is how it currently renders 'out-of-the-box':

It looks good.
And all you changed now was the name of the "Glitter_Trans_Bright_Green" and added "Rubber_Medium_Blue"?

I have codes ready for the Ldcfgalt file.

Here is another interesting colour, or coating.

"Her hair is Light Royal Blue [TLG]/ Bright Light Blue [BL] Mini Doll, Wig, No. 37 (6261350) and is interesting as it has iridescent ink applied as a drum lacquer coating."

Yepp. Checked also the RGB. I however find it odd that Rubber_Medium_Blue. Could also be Rubber_Dark_Azur.
