LDCAD Parts List Export?


LDCAD Parts List Export?
#1
Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, guys. I'm now fully-converted to LDCad and loving it, but now that I've completed my first serious model using it (1400+ pieces) I can't seem to find an easy method to get a listing of all the parts used in it. I tried BrickUtils from years ago but it no longer appears to run and I can't quite follow all of the discussion about Rebrickable providing a parts list. Is there no parts list file export directly from LDCad?

Thanks again for all the great work and help!

I'm sorry there is no export feature for the part list in 1.6b.

You can only view it using the special all parts in model bin group.

I do plan to add a very simple csv export feature for it in 1.6c though.

In the mean time you could also use LDView's part list generator.

Hi Roland,

Would this export take buffer exchange into account?
And helper parts and such?
That would be very helpful. I now use LDView, which is good, but here all parts in a buffer exchange are counted too.
So if I want a parts list I have to make a "BOM" model file and "BI" model file.

It would also help if somehow you could count complete parts that consist of individual parts, would be counted as one.
Take a custom minifig torso. LDView exports the torso, the arms, and hands as separate parts.
I think LDCad counts this a 5 parts too?

In LPub3D, for example, you can make this count as one part so that it shows completely assembled in the PLI and BOM.
It would be nice if you could do this in LDCad too using groups or something.

This goes for many parts too. Like levers, hinges, wheels, train bogies, technic shock absorbers, etc...
(in fact all parts that now have a LDCad template)

It's a very basic feature only. It will just write the current bin content to a csv (filename,color,count) file, so its "what you see is what you get".

I do plan to integrate the lpub metas in the 2.0 parser/editor but I'm a long way from finishing that Sad

OK, basic csv export would help anyway.

Just some ideas you might do in 2.0? ;-)
