IDE, Tools and License - Nils Schmidt - 2012-06-26

I'm working with Eclipse 3.7.2 and prefer to use the MIT license for my work.
Furthermore, I decided to use IBM's SWT and JFace for the GUI design.

- The GUI sketches will be drawn with GLADE.
- The object relationships will be modeled with BOUML (free editon).
- The test plan will be documented with Open Office Calc.


LDPartEditor - Implementation started - Nils Schmidt - 2012-07-25

I just want to mention that I started to write the first lines of code. Due to my work & study I have to decrease the priority on the LD Pattern Creator, but nonetheless I am open for new features.


LDPartEditor - Supported Operating Systems - Nils Schmidt - 2012-08-06

Here is a forecast of all OS types on which the Part Editor will run:
  • Windows XP (32bit [tested] / 64bit)
  • Windows 7 (32bit / 64bit [tested])
  • Ubuntu Linux >= 10.4 (32bit / 64bit [tested])
  • MacOS X >= 10.6 (32bit / 64bit [tested])

You'll need the Oracle / IBM Java Runtime Environment greater or equal to version 6 installed and a Graphic Card with OpenGL support for version >= 2.1.

These specifications might be changed when the development proceed.

Just out of curiosity, Why do you require OpenGL 3.0?

Isn't this editor basically drawing single parts only, in my experience LDraw users often have 'older' hardware for some reason.


LDPartEditor - Open GL Version & Development News - Nils Schmidt - 2012-08-18

Due to private reasons, I will continue my LDraw related work on 2012-09-09.
I looked forward to use the new OpenGL 3.0 spec, but I can easily "downgrade" to 2.1 Smile

I can not download from http://www.scottwardlaw.com/lego/LOCAD.zip !?

Is the file still there?


Re: LDPartEditor - Planning stage started - Scott Wardlaw - 2012-10-23

Many appologies. My website provider went out of business, and I had to transfer what I had backed up to a new web provider.

I have the Java code for LOCAD and will upload it tomorrow.

Hopefully, someone will do something good with it...I'll include the three versions pictured on my flickr page.

Ok, the files are actually still there, but it is now on a Linux server, so the path is case sensitive. The path is actually:

Sorry for the confussion.
