As always, you can download LDPE from this page:



(5 new features and 1 bug fix)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...keep all files from the initial temporary project on application restart.
  • ...see the D value (distance) of the distance meter not only shown in "LDU" but also in "mm" and "Stud".
  • ...copy hint/error/warning messages to the clipboard to paste it to the PartsTracker.
  • ...have a customizable line size button where you can set the thickness of the line for yourself (Ctrl+Click on a line size button).
  • ...use more line size buttons (five).

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. "Save as..." removed sometimes a correct directory prefix (e.g. "48\") from the file header.

The program was tested intensively with "real world" files.
However, something can go wrong in about 140.000 lines of code.

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:
  • OpenGL 2.1 compatible Graphics Card
  • Operating System (64-bit): Windows [7 or newer], Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor e.g. Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon II (>2.0Ghz)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Video-Memory: 1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 100 MB
Recommended Requirements:
  • Operating System (64bit): Windows 7,8,10, Linux [e.g. Ubuntu Linux >=14.4], Mac OS X [>=10.6]
  • OpenGL 3.3 compatible Graphics Card
  • CPU: Multicore-Processor with 4 cores (or more)
  • RAM: >4 GB
  • Video-Memory: >1 GB
  • Free Disk Space: 512 MB
  • For a faster start, LDPartEditor and the LDraw™ library should be installed on an SSD.
