This is really a list of "stuff that has the capability to display LDraw models" excluding POV-Ray and friends.

and by the way, I often use LDView + a text editor for alot of my LDraw stuff, so sure, it can be functionally used as an editor (especially since polling/auto-reload support was added). Its power and versatility are certainly not to be discounted. Thanks for writing it.

Ah, thanks, I had missed that.

Any chance you have larger images though? Google images isn't very helpful this time, and these are each going on a sheet of 8.5x11 paper. (that is, for the ones I can find.)

I found a copy and ran it, but I couldn't get it to display any models I loaded. It's bricks palette showed my LDraw parts, and it displayed said parts when I selected any given part, but the model itself didn't show.

Here's the link for Brickdraw3D:

Thanks. I saw the site earlier, but I was hoping for a screenshot that showed the interface too, not just the portion of it that outputs the LDraw model. (unless I misunderstand how this program was used).

And would you by any chance have a screenshot of plain old LDraw (with car.dat or something loaded)? I have one for LEdit, but I can't figure out how to get a screenshot of just good old LDraw (all generic "LDraw" searches obviously return tons of stuff about the entire LDraw system, and not about the original program). I would certainly just take one myself, but unfortunately I won't have access to a PC before the presentation.

Here is the page LDView uses for library updates:

A number of the zips and exe URLs in the above include ldraw.exe. As far as I know, the last two items in the list are the last James Jessiman LDraw distribution.

L3glite is just a multi-call binary shortcut for ldglite, so you can safely ignore it.

It was made in the early days when I got tired of running "ldglite -l3" to use Lars' parser instead of the ldlite parser. Eventually I switched ldglite to default to the l3 parser because it's C code and thus easier for me to update for things like new colors than the lex and yacc code of the ldlite parser.

Cool project. Here are screenshots of all the LDraw-compatible programs I could find as of about two years ago, all displaying the same model:

I don't think my list includes anything that isn't already on your list, but feel free to use any of the screenshots if you'd like.

The original site seems to be down at the moment, but a person named Andy Lynch wrote a simple LDraw renderer in Processing. I posted some screenshots here:

Don't forget BrickPad and brickView. They aren't editors, but nonetheless...

Screenshot for BrickPad can be found at http://www.kenrickdrew.com/brickpad/review/screenshot.png

As for brickView, I'll let Renaud provide a screenshot. If he doesn't get around to it, let me know, and I'll put up one.

If you're taking suggestions, the pictures of Mac Brick Cad reminded me of my personal favorite historic ldglite screenshot, on this page that I rescued from the internet memory hole.
