Exporting LDraw Database of Pieces


Exporting LDraw Database of Pieces
#1
Is it legal/possible to export an image of each piece in LDraw's database in order to create a database with every piece in it? Are there copyright issues with these images?

Assuming it is allowed, is there a way to do a mass export for each piece?

Please read:

The LDraw Steering Committee has recently also agreed on the following:

"... not to enforce any attribution requirements on the use of images rendered from the LDraw library. While obviously we would prefer to see all the part authors rewarded for their hard work by a link back to the LDraw website, this is not necessary on images."

You could write a batch file:

or a script in any other form. Note also that the latest All-In-One-Installer comes with an offline parts cataloge in PDF.
