    Thread: Mirroring
Post: RE: Mirroring

I don't actually know the LDCAD MIRROR_INFO format, but I suspect it fits the bill.  Back in 2004 there was an .ini file with a a single line per part containing a transformation matrix and a few o...

Sorry to necropost on this thread, but Christmas week is when I get to do my annual check up on interesting topics like ldraw.  So... I was wondering, is mirroring fully automated yet?  Once upon a ti...

Coincidentally, this just came up as as issue on the lsynth github.  The net generator spreadsheet could be used to model that.  But you'd have to do it in 2 parts, and you might want to substitute st...

Post: lsynth and ldglite moved to github

The sourceforge seems mostly dead these days so -- in an effort to make a small update to lsynth -- I've moved both lsynth (https://deeice.github.io/lsynth) and ldglite (https://deeice.github.io/ldgli...

It's been a while since I did the work on lsynth 3.1, and it looks like the sourceforge site has fallen into disrepair in the meantime.  So I'll see if I can manage to move it to github and incorp...

It's almost certainly a memory problem.  How much do you have?  It'd be interesting to monitor it in Task Manager and see how much each process is using.  I have no idea how much LPub3D uses, but ...

So ldglite renders the 48x48 in the model images, but not in the PLI?  I'll have to try it with a simple model (48x48 and a 2x4) and see what happens.  Maybe the different orientation of the PLI image...

If you can reproduce it with an official then it'll be much easier to track down and fix the problem.  Otherwise it's a guessing game.
