LDBoxer


LDBoxer
#1
I was wondering if someone could take a look at the source code to this program:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/ldrawboxer/

Currently it is not working properly for me. I used it in the past, so I know it *can* work. The developer said it might have something to do with long file names. He also said he is not feeling well, so he may not work on it any more.

Does anyone here have Delphi and can update the code? It is not a large program. If it was FreePascal I might take a stab at it myself.

Bonus feature request: I would also like to be able to use this tool from the command line, since I have a directory full of models that need to be converted.

Thanks everyone!

Here's my path to LDBoxer:

Code:
E:\Programs Windows\LDraw\ldboxer\LDBoxer2010a.exe

Here's my path to %LDRAWDIR%:

Code:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\LDraw\parts

Here's the path to my model:

Code:
D:\Datsville\datsville_boxed_half\building_057_castletavern.ldr

I am able to load the model in LDBoxer, but am unable to process the file. LDBoxer does nothing when I press the AutoCheck button.

Looking at the program source code, can you see what might be causing this?

Okay, the problem was that the "ldraw.ini" file was not set correctly. Once I set it correctly the program worked.

Is this file obsolete? What is the replacement method of finding the LDraw directory?

I did acting version of the command line. However, before it delivers. I wanted to ask for access to the file before | after modification via LDraw Boxer, to make sure that my version works just as well as the original.

I don't understand what you are saying. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry for you too. So give me this file(s) that you use with tool before covered it. And I check by my self how my version work. OK.

I forgot, but where do I put the box parts? Are the box parts the same as Tore Eriksson's?

Assuming they are located in:

"C:\Users\Public\Documents\LDraw\parts\b"

I am unable to process the following file:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/y56s7dj77v...d_half.zip

The program simply says "Boxed 0 parts" and then quits.

Could you take a look please?

I have started fixing it myself, but the script now boxes every single part, so I must have made a mistake somewhere. Can you find the error?

[edit]

I updated the code with a few fixes.

Sorry for late response. I do not have much time for this. I don't know what is wrong with Python code, so i roll up to Pascal code.

I do not have idea why Tore Eriksson search files in %LDRAWPATH%\PARTS\B except S directory, but i stay as isIt is possible that some things were bad from the beginning.
After close application, you can look on activity log in file ldboxer_stdout.txt

Which compiler is needed to build and run this version? Delphi is not free IIRC.

You can always start use FREE Trial version. Like i temporary do. By the way, write how the program works. Personally, i prefers other programming languages.

EDIT: You can download and use Lazarus from https://www.lazarus-ide.org/ as alternative too.

I think I used Delphi v7.0, and it was free since they want us to get hooked in an old free version and then upgrade to one that's not free. There were many problems with LDBoxer if my memory serves me right. The biggest was it didn't have support for long file names or whitespaces in paths or file names. The constant changes of the LDraw spec's made me give up the whole project.

And: LDBoxer - at least in my versions - does not support MPD or any SNOT application at all. I simply don't have that programming skills.

It's sad that it doesn't handle MPD files properly. It's still better than nothing, though.

Do you think you could build a version that works on the command-line?

Or, could you take a look at @Jarema's and my direct translation into Python? I can get the script to run (Python scripts don't need to be compiled first, as long as you have Python installed), but there's something broken in it.

Thanks!
