Since I didn't actually test the upload capability, here it goes. Note that this may or may not adhere to the OMR spec. I didn't check.

Edit 1 - Now OMR Spec compliant

Really? I rendered this at least 10 times testing out different settings and never noticed.

On a side note, I read through the OMR spec and I think it needs significant improvement...

Nitpicking: tower should use light bluish gray (71), not old gray (7)...

Fixed. Color 7 -> 71. Blame SPAM CONTENT memory. Gotta remember Light Grey is obsolete.

Yeah, one of the first things I do when starting a new model is I check to see which greys were used via bricklink and/or Peeron. Then I check to make sure the greys in color-bar (in MLCad) are set correctly, so that I can use them (these are edit-able, if you didn't know).

Another color that's easy to confuse is old-brown vs the new reddish-brown. I think this change happened around the same time as the grey -> bley conversion.

This is 21010 Robie House.

I put some STEP to mark a sequence of building, but it was not complete.

Anyway you can enjoy this building with LDview.

Special thanks to Mr. Philippe Hurbain for 99301.dat part.

Enjoy Smile

font identification
#30
To identify a font just by its visual appearance ("does the 'g' look so-and-so... and so on"),
several databases on the web exist. They can help, even if you only have a small sample of letters.
I found playing with those quite funny. Maybe you already know of those.
For example: http://www.identifont.com

Re: font identification
#31
Yes, I did try identifont in the past - but was not SO convinced by the result. And often the best match font costs an arm... So I prefer to use font preview of some tools (here I used Corel Draw) to identify the best font already present on my system.

If you right-click on one of the color squares in the color toolbar, the color selector opens, and you can choose the color assigned to this square.

You're NOT reading my tutorials by heart?

http://www.holly-wood.it/mlcad/basic2-en.html

Step 23:

Use the color dialog also to permanently change the default colors in the Color bar. You might substitute color 7 - Light_Gray with the nowadays used color 71 - Light_Bluish_Gray or replace rare colors like Salmon or Bright_green with transparent or chrome colors.
Right-clicking the color button you want to change will bring up the color dialog. Select a color as you would do for a part, okay-ing, MLCad will store the information in its settings.

  • .ldr file format instead of .mpd
  • makes use of alias parts.

Re: 21002 - Empire State Building

Ok. The alias parts thing is frustrating for a number of reasons:
- Not illegal per the spec
- Does not affect the model in any way
- No way for me to not include them in my library since I work on the Mac OSX platform so the complete.exe install file for the library is not something I can use (not that I would anyway).

The .ldr extension was used since I had no submodels. Easily changed.

Please comment here if the suggestion to use a "=" prefix for aliases would help.

I've just booked onto an event being run by RIBA (The Royal Institute of British Architects). Here's a snippet about the event:

"Senior Design Manager at LEGO Simon Kent offers a unique insight to the world of LEGO and how his own training as a product designer led to having one of the best jobs in the world on the LEGO Creator design team. Simon takes you through the design processes at LEGO and uses case studies including the LEGO Creator house design, direct modular building, and world building design models. Simon will talk about how design details are added to houses and introduce the growing LEGO Architecture series."

More details here

I'll be at the Birmingham event in the UK on the 21st June. Let me know if you're coming!

Bye for now

I just built this model, too. And I toyed a little bit with the light.dat .

The result is attached. Just use LDView to view it and mark use light.dat and replace standard light in preferences. Also a darker background is useful, so it looks nice.

Wish I had known this when I built my LEGO Hotel.

All those "tan" and "dark tan" bits were selected the "long way"!

Thanks Philippe for pointing this out, and Steffen for digging up an old post - I'd probably never have discovered this otherwise.
