Where can I download LDraw?

Hey Guys,

I am German and not very good in English so it might be that I am just too silly to find the link to the download of LDraw...
It would be nice if someone could post a link to the MLCAD needed LDraw base package Smile

Thanks very much!

Marco

I am new to the LDraw community and am having issues downloading the complete pack for Mac OS.

every time I click on the link to get LDraw it takes me to the latest parts page.  The complete pack is for windows.  It has a .exe file which is not compatible with Mac. 

Please help.

I assume you are following the Mac instructions here:
http://www.ldraw.org/help/getting-started/mac.html

Per the instructions, you'll want the "complete.zip" file.

Indeed I did. Normally there would be a .dmg file for Mac, but there is a .exe, which is a windows executable file.

Right, ignore the .exe files.  Actually, I not sure why we still offer those since unzip capability has been built into windows for a while.

Anyway, maybe the instructions for Step 1 aren't clear but you want to download the "complete.zip".  That's the bottom link on the table.  Once you've downloaded that file, follow the rest of the instructions in Step 1. The library isn't a .dmg because it's not a program, it's a collection of files and .zip is cross platform.
