[LDPartEditor] 0.8.24 Beta Released (Rounding per X,Y,Z / bugfix)

[LDPartEditor] 0.8.24 Beta Released (Rounding per X,Y,Z / bugfix)

here is version 0.8.24 with 4 bug fixes and 3 enhancements.
...I am writing content for the wiki/manual now.

As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(3 new features and 4 bug fixes)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...use per-component rounding (X, Y, Z) instead of the per-vertex rounding (useful for patterns on slopes).
  • ...use the metadata dialog (AKA "header dialog") on the text editor, too.
  • ...benefit from a faster program start.

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. It was not possible to activate "Create a new conditional line..." via a shortkey.
  2. The new LDU to stud converter did not round correctly (20 LDU = 1 stud, rounded to one decimal place)
  3. The Merge/split->Set X,Y,Z window appears only with a single vertex selection, it no longer works on a multiple selection (eg. to snap a selection on a plane).
  4. The error message "Invalid use of 'BFC INVERTNEXT' / Flat subfile" got duplicated.

What will the next release 0.8.25 deliver? Bug fixes, more header validation features, usability improvements...

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.

   Download the zip-Archive
   Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
   On windows, double-click "run.bat" to start LDPE.
   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 0.8.24 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:

   On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
   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.
