Screenshots of historic LDraw editors - Jean-Philippe Ouellet - 2012-03-07

Hello,

Long story short, I'm giving a presentation in which I would like to include screenshots of the interfaces of LDraw-related software.

My list currently is:
  • BlockCad
  • BrickFoundry
  • BrickPad
  • Bricksmith
  • brickView
  • Glide
  • Konstructor
  • L3Lab
  • LD4DStudio
  • LDCad
  • Lego Digital Designer
  • LDGlite
  • LDlite
  • LDView
  • LEdit
  • LeoCad
  • LGLite
  • MLCad
  • SR3DBuilder
(I hope I didn't mis-capitalize any of those.)

I was unable to find suitable screenshots for:
  • L3GLite
  • LCX
  • Brickdraw3D

If I have forgotten anything, and you happen to notice it, please let me know.

Also, if you happen to have screenshots of anything I don't already have screenshots for (or happen to still have the software), if you would be so kind as to post a screenshot of it that would be wonderful.

Many thanks,
Jean-Philippe

EDIT: my list is limited to stuff that actually renders the model, so stuff like LPub, LDDP, part author utilities, etc. don't count. Things that only have 2D output like those mosaic/train layout things don't count either. And I left out all the POV-Ray stuff intentionally.

EDIT 2: I just remembered the iOS viewers, those have been added too.

EDIT3: removed voxel3d, not really ldraw.

LDView's home page has a screenshot (although it's actually out of date). If you'd like an up-to-date screenshot (with different toolbar, but everything else pretty much the same), let me know.

I was going to use
http://i.imgur.com/6Kuin.png (the same as the home page)
and
http://i.imgur.com/GztOf.png (most recent version available, with 8464.mpd by Peter Bartfai loaded (the front-end-loader distributed with it)).
to represent LDView.

Oh, I've been meaning to tell you that the pneumatic parts are misplaced in that model. It appears as though it has succumb to unofficial-part-origin-shifting syndrome because the part in question (2793c01.dat) was last updated in '09:
Code:
0 !HISTORY 2009-12-10 [arezey] Compensated origin changes in composing parts
while the model was last updated in '07:
Code:
0 Version: 1.0a (20071123)

I attached a somewhat-less-broken version, but I'm sure you could do a better job fixing it than I.


Re: Screenshots of historic LDraw editors - Travis Cobbs - 2012-03-07

That's quite the customized toolbar on the Mac screenshot. I'll let Peter know about the pneumatic stuff, and see if he wants to fix the model. If he doesn't want to fix it, I'll attempt to do so myself. (Ironically, I do virutally no LDraw modeling, so I might not have the skills needed to get them properly positioned.)

If I remember to update the screenshot on LDView's home page tonight, I'll notify you here.

Haha, yup, everything except for the "customize toolbar" button. I was so happy when I realized I had just enough screen real-estate to make it all fit so perfectly.

I remember making an animated gif (or was it an APNG) of a small LDView window rotating car.dat a while ago. I might be able to dig it up off an old drive if you'd like it.

That would be quite cool, actually. I would like it.

I added Mac Brick Cad and you can find some (small) screenshots here:

this is an interesting thread, and maybe we can have a central page, too,
showing all those screenshots and links to the tools

[*]LDView

LDView isn't really an editor, is it? If it still is included in the list, I think Original LDraw should also be, and not only LEdit.

LDView is definitely not an editor. I'm pretty sure L3Lab isn't an editor either. Both have lots of features designed to assist in the editing of parts inside some external program, but neither is an editor.
