Who can help to create a file for unofficial parts


Who can help to create a file for unofficial parts
#1
Hi there,
I have developed and produced some track links for tank models.
Of course I have the 3D files from the development.
Now I need some help to create LDraw files for unofficial parts based on my 3D files.
Is there anybody who can help me with this?
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,

What you can do is to export your 3d files in stl ascii format, then use stl2dat to convert them to LDraw file format. You can either use it as a command line tool (http://marc.klein.free.fr/lego/stl2dat/stl2dat.html) or through a GUI, stl2dat is one of the tools included in LETGUI distribution (http://ldraw.heidemann.org/index.php?page=letgui).
Remember that dimensions of your object must be expressed in LDraw units, otherwise some scaling will be necessary (1ldu=0.4mm)

Ideally you already model them using LDU and not mm.
