LDCad Set PBG generator - Orion Pobursky - 2020-05-28

I finished entering all 526(!) torso assemblies (out of a possible 3700ish) into the cross reference file, I've moved the Set PBG generator out of experimental status.

New url is:
https://www.ldraw.org/downloads-2/pbg-generator.html

My next project is hips assemblies then Minidoll torso and leg assemblies followed by Technic action figures. I may sprinkle in other assemblies as I find them.

As always, If you find bugs or oddities, please post them here. If you find a misnumbered single file that's not part of an assembly, submit a change request at Rebrickable.

The current crossref file can always be found here:
https://www.ldraw.org/common/data/pbg_crossref.csv

As it happens, a certain level of privileges is needed to submit change requests to RB, which I don't personally have. That's fine with me, but I just thought I'd make note of it.

But the tool looks good and seems to work well, so cheers there!

It really takes very little effort to get to that point. I started because I want to submit a set list and it took me no time adding some of my sets and following MOC builders.

That said, if this doesn't interest you, just post your changes here and I'll submit them.

Do you know if they are scanning our library?
Most of the set I have looked at have bad info on the patterned parts. It looks like Rebrickable assume a ldraw pattern number based on their own numbering system. Why should we push lots of change request to them when they should be pulling info from us?
All of the printed parts to the Minion set 75551 are made, but non of them have correct number at RB.

Is there a way to get stickers and/or stickered parts included in this generator?
A set list is not complete without the sticker sheet numbers.

Yes, they are in a limited sense. Patterns are hard since they have to be manually matched. I've submitted somewhere in the realm of 400 entries to their database for just patterns.

Also, for the set you've mentioned, all of those parts are unofficial. For patterns I've been focusing on just the one's in the official library before moving on to the PT.

Funny you mention stickers since I just started with cross referencing stickers (while I think about how I'm going to approach hip assemblies which aren't as straight forward as torsos were). Sticker sheets would be considered "assemblies". This means they'll have to be added to the crossref file.

Oh yeah, I'm sure it'll just happen at some point without my even realizing it. Wink

I was going to add, most of the errors I run into do seem to be wrong pattern codes. That suggests to me it might be more an issue of how they track these parts in their database, rather than requesting changes case-by-case.

I'm not doing case by case any more. I've been in contact with the database admins and I send them batch edit in the form of CSV files.

Stickers are in the crossref. Not all the entries are correct because not all sticker sheets are in the Rebrickable data nor are they numbered consistently. Also, since Rebrickable doesn't assign a color to the sheets, I've assumed the color white for everything. This can be changed as I manually research each sheet.

All the stickers in our library that are also cataloged at RB are now properly cross-ref'd with the proper color (White, Trans-Sticker, or (in one instance) Chrome Silver). I did my best so if you find a sticker group with the wrong color, let me know and I'll change it.
