1.8.58 Released (bugfixes, keys for view rotation axis lock)

this is mostly a small bugfix release, but it includes also a shortkey binding to rotate the view around a fixed axis with the mouse.

As always, you can download LDPE from this page:



(1 new feature and 3 bug fixes)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...press and hold shortkeys to rotate the view around a fixed axis with the mouse (snapping to angles, with Shift, Ctrl and Alt).

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. The check for BFC-Meta command was not strict enough (it allowed prefix lines like "0 BFC CERTIFY CCWxyz").
  2. !HISTORY meta command: Removed the [4.0] tag in favor of a fixed implementation date.
  3. Added missing buttons on the UI for area expansion / missing buttons on "Find+Replace" dialog.

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.
