[LDPartEditor] 0.8.11b Beta Released

[LDPartEditor] 0.8.11b Beta Released
I released 0.8.11 this week... It contained a bug and no triangle selection was possible. I had to fix it with release 0.8.11b... Sorry :|


oh well, finally there is a 3D CSG manipulation feature release with LDPartEditor 0.8.11b...
This one was difficult, but the results are worth it :)

As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(6 new features and 1 bug fix)

With this release you will be able to...
  • ...to manipulate the CSG bodies in the same way as the sub-parts (supports also colour changes, "Select All", "Select all with Same Colours" and "Select None", global and local transformation).
  • ...to quickly convert selected triangles into quads.
  • ...to create and use angle protractors for 3 points.
  • ...to create and use distance meters between 2 points (distances depend on local or global manipulator settings).
  • ...use a little unit converter on the 3D editor window (located at the snapping area).
  • ...to benefit from better undo/redo performance.

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. If you copied a LPE vertex and then tried to move one of them, both copies were moved ("Move Adjacent Data" is OFF).
I had to release 0.8.11b a few hours after 0.8.11 was out. Because of a triangle selection bug!!!

What will the next release 0.8.12 deliver?
A PartReview Tool, more CSG improvements, inverted surface winding when mirroring, better performance with "Round" in the text editor.

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 0.8.11b 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.
RE: [LDPartEditor] 0.8.11 Beta Released (CSG+Measuring Tools)
I fear something is very wrong in this release.
I cant select triangles or quads if there is a primitive behind it. One of the "hidden" surfaces in the primitive is choosen instead.
I can't undo a inlined subfile, only a inlined primitive.
