LPub3D 2.1


LPub3D 2.1
#1
UPDATE:  I've been working with Trevor this weekend, and he has a release coming which has addressed all the issues I encountered with the initial release of version 2.1.  It should be available shortly after Sourceforge resolves some issues related to their recent move to a new data center.


Has anyone updated to LPub3D 2.1 yet?  I tried to do it today and ran into several problems.  I was trying to upgrade from 2.0.20 under Windows 7.

1.  During installation, the uninstall of 2.0.20 failed.  I manually uninstalled 2.0.20 using the Windows Control Panel and tried again.  This time the install was successful.
2.  Rendering with LDGLite did not work well at all.  LDGLite kept crashing and I ended up with many parts and assemblies not showing up.  Rendering with LDView seemed to be working.
3.  When configuring the rendering options, it told me the binary for POV-Ray 3.7 was invalid and wouldn't accept my selection.
4.  LPub3D did not appear to be writing any log files that I could use to diagnose problems.

I restarted LPub3D several times and rebooted my system twice but could not get it working.

I was able to download and re-install 2.0.20 without incident, and it seems to be working like it did before the attempted upgrade.

Thanks Kevin, your post was the first I knew that there was a new release of LPub3D available. I'll try it, see how I get on and post of any issues I encountered.

Regards,

Hi
Same problem during the uninstall process.
I have not made any further attempts, because 2.0.20 runs optimal.
I hope there is a problem solution in the future.

Regards

For what it's worth, the release notes for 2.1 state that all renderers (LDView, LDGLite, POV-Ray) have been folded into the application (possibly with customization to their source code, although I'm not sure of that).
