Shaping a minifig chain in LDCad

So I simply used chain links and positionned them individually to build the chain. To do so I used a lot the definition of new origin/orientation ('o' key), and modification of part rotation origin.
Philo is right about this, at this length it is probably easier to manually place the links.

When using the template you can also tweak its skin parameters somewhat to help fill it out better at short distances.
