Call for LDCad 1.6 bug reports
#1
Hello all,

I decided to do a 1.6c version of LDCad as I've gathered a couple of small issues making it worth while.

But I would like to address as much as possible as this might be the final 1.x version.

These are the known issues:
- Copy goes wrong when multiple instances are involved of which not all are really selected (e.g. some are hidden trough buffer exchange).
- ctrl + 'plus' or 'min' hotkeys don't work.
- Animation mode does not apply buffer exchange visibility.

And some minor tweaks/additions
- Hotkeys for zooming and panning
- Allow higher and unlimited max script execution time
- (very)Basic export (probably CSV) for part bin contents. Mostly for use with the "All parts used in the current model" bin.


Please feel free to report any additional issues and or minor tweaks.

Dunno if it qualifies as minor... show help section of a part when displaying its properties?

I don't know whether this is a LDCAD bug or a(n unofficial) part issue. I just tried adding the newly created train motor (unofficial) part to a model and in LDCAD it seems to have some "challenges";

The same parts renders properly using LPub3D, so I'm slightly puzzled as to what has happened here. Any suggestions?

It looks like you don't have, or have misplaced the subfiles to the top and bottom parts of the motor assembly.

89832s01.dat and 54756s01 should be placed in the ../unofficial/parts/s -folder

Those subfiles were there already. However, now when I open the model in LDCAD ...

.. the motor is displayed as expected. Any attempt to explain why it wasn't displaying correctly before but now is would be pure guess work from me, so I won't go there.

Did you restart the program after placing the dependency files? LDCad only updates the library at program start when changes are detected.

A plausible scenario for this: you intalled the main part without installing the subparts (or placed them in a wrong folder). When you look at the part with LDCad, it misses all those subparts as shown in your screen capture. If then you look at your file with LDView (or try to make BIs with LPub3D that uses LDView), LDView automatically fetches the missing subparts from LDraw server. Its display is correct, and the missing subparts are now correctly placed in the right folder, thus "repairing" LDCad display.

Maybe future versions of LDCad could also try to fetch missing files from LDraw server?
