As always, you can download LDPE from this page:

(14 bug fixes)

The following critical issues were fixed:

  1. The PartReview progress monitor did not update the status info.
  2. "Split View Horizontally / Vertically" did not work correct with the new sync. feature (Zoom / Manipulator / Translation).
  3. "Intersector" did not hide primitives.
  4. The LDU to Inch factor was not correct (was 0.015625, but should be 0.015748).
  5. Released translation / property files for the German language version too early.
  6. MeshReducer did not always terminate automatically (but the manual "Cancel" button worked).
  7. SWTException: Widget is Disposed, when inserted something.
  8. Transform selection (Subfiles) threw a NullPointerException.
  9. A colour change (Subfiles) threw a NullPointerException.
  10. The OpenGL line width for primitives was not constant (Primitive Area).
  11. After I used SymSplitter to get half of a file, and then used the Select ...All Shown, all edges, tris and quads in hidden primitives and subfiles were selected too.
  12. "Drag & Drop" with primitives led to an event overflow, which slowed down the OpenGL render engine.
  13. Open *.dat File (3D Editor) threw a NullPointerException.
  14. The Subfiler didn't include and move comments. They're left behind in the main file. The structure of the file was lost.
What will the next release 0.8.15 deliver? Focus on bug fixes, performance and then usability improvements...

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 0.8.14 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] 0.8.14 Beta Released (Bug Fix)
Is there something wrong in this patch?
I tried using the 'update.bat' as usual, but it gets stuck, trying to extract something....?
Update problems?

No, there is nothing wrong with the patch.
I test "update.bat" for each release and had no problems with it on 32 and 64bit windows.
You can also download the version manually from github or sourceforge.

I've tried it again now, and this time it went all well. I'm up and running again.
