[LDPartEditor] 0.8.19 Beta Released

[LDPartEditor] 0.8.19 Beta Released
Hi :)
you wanted some tabs? Version 0.8.19 delivers it... ;)

[Image: imgDuke2.png]
As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(5 new features and 4 bug fixes)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...use tabs in the 3D editor along with the tree on the left side.
  • ...hit a button to synchronise the tab selection from tabs in the 3D editor with the text editor.
  • ...see a dialog when you try to re-load an unsaved file again.
  • ...smooth a set of vertices (with realtime preview)
  • ...access the colour palette functions (load / save / reset) from a sub-menu.
  • ...benefit from little performance improvements / refactoring.

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. [Recurring] "Conditional Control Point Vertices" caused flickering on multiple views.
  2. Annoying mouse issues with the manipulator.
  3. The selection highlight feature in the text editor was sometimes not synchronised with the 3D view.
  4. [CSG] Rotating a part at 90 degree: It got undesired 0.0 digits.
  5. One manipulator icon was a duplicate.

What will the next release 0.8.20 deliver? Bug fixes and improvements for the new tab feature...

The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, it is still a beta version and something can go wrong in about 100.000 lines of code.

Make sure that you choose the right architecture for your OS and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) (64bit or 32bit).
A short guide how to check if a 64bit JVM is installed on your system is located at the bottom of this message.

  1. Download the zip-Archive
  2. Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
  3. On windows, double-click "run.bat" to start LDPE.
  4. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "run.sh" to start LDPE.
Please note that this software is in the beta stage. Although, LDPE 0.8.19 was tested, there are already known issues  for this release. There is a potential risk of data loss.

You can search for updates if you do the following steps:

  1. On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
  2. On linux/mac, you have to excecute the shell script "update.sh".
I listen carefully to your requests and possible complaints. Please leave me a message, with your thoughts and wishes to further improve the software.

LDPE is a 3D CAD application: The overall system requirements are higher. While I recommend to use a powerful 64-bit multicore system, it could be possible, to run LDPE on older machines as well.

System Requirements:

Minimum System Requirements:
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8
  • OpenGL 2.1 compatible Graphics Card
  • Operating System (32/64bit): Windows [XP; Vista; 7 or newer], Mac OS X [>=10.6], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=10.4]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon II (>2.0Ghz)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video-Memory: 512 MB
  • Free Disk Space: 100 MB
Recommended Requirements:
  • Operating System (64bit): Windows 7, Mac OS X [>=10.6], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=10.4]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor with 4 cores (or more)
  • RAM: >4 GB
  • Video-Memory: >=1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 512 MB
How to check your JVM version (32- or 64-bit):

You can try on the command line:

java -d64 version

If it's not a 64-bit version, you'll get a message that looks like:

This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM. Please install the desired version.

In general, I recommend to install the 64-bit version of the JVM for Java 8.
