As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(8 new features and 4 bug fixes)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...customise GUI colours with the new "Options" dialog (text / 3D editor).
  • ...activate/deactivate the error detection for new faces (with the new "Options" dialog)
  • ...activate/deactivate no-structure-aware sorting (text editor)
  • ...copy/cut/delete modifies the currently "selected" line in the text editor (without text selection, it works now on the line where the caret is placed, too)
  • ...benefit from better performance / usablility for "Toggle Comment / Toggle TEXMAP" (text editor)
  • ...benefit from better performance for "Synchronise Folders / Editor Content".
  • ...benefit from auto-removal of CR/LF line endings at the end of the file (on save)
  • ...benefit from usability improvements for Add... Line, Triangle, Quad & Condline (the selection rectangle does not create a new vertex anymore)
The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. Subfiles references with "s\" as prefix were not found when they were located in the same folder as the parent file
  2. Toggle comment/toggle !TEXMAP on multiple lines did not work as expected.
  3. SymSplitter: Result was shifted if there was a "0 BFC INVERTNEXT"
  4. Bounding-box calculation errors with empty sub-files (some sub-files were invisible).

What will the next release 0.8.11 deliver? A feature to edit CSG shapes in the 3D view, quick triangle-to-quad conversion, measuring tools, a unit converter...

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.

  1. Download the zip-Archive
  2. Extract the archive content to the location of your choice
  3. On windows, double-click "run.bat" to start LDPE.
  4. 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 0.8.10 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:

  1. On windows, double-click "update.bat" to search for updates.
  2. 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.
