Hi,

WE WANT YOU! As new administrator for the Official Model Repository. It is your job to pick the files people post to the Official models thread, cross-check that they follow the rules for the OMR and add them to the database. Ideally you check also that they have been build according to the official building instruction.

Interested? Just reply in this thread.

I would also be interested in this job, perhaps to support Jaco.

I am working on an online tool for automatic checks for OMR.
With these check the tool can both help check for OMR compliance and allow the user to walk through the steps of instructions. It works on any platform, so that should help potential MAC, Linux or mobile platform users.

Do you think this tool will be useful, or is effort best spent elsewhere?


By the way. Many of the existing OMR models do not have instructions steps. Is it allowed to add steps to these?

A tool like that could definitely help.

Adding steps, improving and correcting models from the OMR is always good.
I asume one can upload a new version of a model, overwriting the existing one?

MPDCenter is a very good tool to check OMR compatibly.
And LDcad to clean up files.
I have had very good experiences with it.

Sure but please note that the OMR rules state:

"Updates of files made after the first official release should get a history line, which states the date, author and a short description of the change."

What kind of tool have you made exactly? If it happens to be made using Python it could probably be added to the OMR site relatively easy.

It is my Three.js LDraw file loader which is currently used for some basic checks (such as missing files). I can make OMR checker that works on the model built by the loader.

After going through the OMR specification page, I believe I should be able to write the OMR checks in the buildinginstructions.js project.

As an example of the current simplistic checks, this model is using an invalid part

It surely will. One request form my side would be to make the error messages as user friendly as possible - the only thing I struggle with MPDCenter's OMR test are it's cryptic messages.

Is there any record of which models have already been added to the OMR page? I am already clear that I only have to check on the OMR side, which already exist, but it is work first in the forum to choose a model and then look in the OMR if already available. Or can the OMR database be exported to a list? Then it is easy again. Check the forum, check off the model or check the model for OMR and upload.

I don't quite understand what you mean. You can view on the OMR site which files are available and which aren't right?
As for the forum; it was once decided to not remove the forum posts that have been added to the OMR.

I do not want to remove the files from the forum.
Just meant to compare.
If I have a list of the files that are already on the OMR page, then I do not have to switch back and forth between forum and OMR page.
Of course it works without it.
It was just a question, I love lists. ;-)

Well, there is an api available, but it is incredibly basic as it was never meant to be used very much (if at all).

Looking at this further, while editing the post to add a tag can be done, I think a forum plugin to automate this task further is better.

Oh, you're certainly not! Any help is appreciated. Smile I've got no time to add models to the OMR site. Roland did it for a while but I guess he either lost interest or has no time either. The last model added to the OMR was almost a year ago, so there's probably a bit of a backlog (not to mention existing files maybe could be updated, but that's a headache for another time I think).

Merlijn,

reading your email again it was my understanding that you have limited time and the backlog from Dec. 28, 2017, 2:31 p.m. is due to this. You are always welcome to add sets and work on the code but you'll also have to understand that we cannot wait another year to see some sets added.

I have indeed not very much time to work on the OMR (or any LDraw related things for that matter) lately. And I don't mind at all that other people are willing to step in; that's great. I have zero intentions to block anyone from doing stuff with the OMR for 'another year'.

I think you and Johann kind of misinterpreted my post above. The only thing I meant was that there's a bug (or rather an unfinished feature) in the system for adding files and it's best I'd tell anyone using it beforehand. It's also the thing (among some general updates) I want to fix at the end of the year if time permits.

I have just stated that I should first look before asking meaningless questions.
On the OMR side there is already a list of the whole models.
I have now marked these and inserted them into Excel.
Filter placed over it and you can easily see which models are already here.

Ok, I made a start with finding all models submitted to the Forum and started to document them.
Here is the list:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e...tu/pubhtml

Tab: OMR = currently uploaded to the OMR
Tab: Forum = all models posted here with check if the model is currently on the OMR

I compare the sets with what is on the OMR now and what is on the forums, so we can start downloading from here and uploading to the OMR.

I compare the sets with what is on the OMR now and what is on the forums, so we can start downloading from here and uploading to the OMR.

Should we cross check first, if the models are on rebrickable?
Who makes which theme or numbers?

 Pretty much every set is on Rebrickbable. Only very new sets (2019) might be missing.

 Pretty much every set is on Rebrickbable. Only very new sets (2019) might be missing.

Ok, and what does it say whether a model is on Rebrickable or not?
Do we cross-check the set number or theme there?

The system retrieves set information from Rebrickable (which makes it possible to filter the files by year, theme etc.). In an old version, the information had to be manually entered. It worked, but it was a big annoyance and it took quite a bit of time per file to add (you were basicially recreating a lego set database, which is really reinventing the wheel). Now you can just select a file, enter the set number (see disclaimer in PM) and voila.

Addition to the spreadsheet is now a tab RB (ReBrickable)
Imported is a list of all sets currently on RB
On the tab Forum I look for the set on RB
So far, I found 11 sets submitted to the forum that are not on RB

For example 7603 Dump Truck submitted here https://forums.ldraw.org/thread-7939-pos...ck#pid7945
Seems to be this one: https://brickset.com/sets/7603-1/Dump-Truck but is not listed on RB.

How do we deal with this?

I think your list isn't quite right. For example, 390-2 or or 107-2 are on Rebrickable.
7603 is an interesting one. I think because it is an unreleased set nobody ever noticed it was missing. I've added it  Wink

Hi Merlijn,

Are you an admin for Rebrickable too?

I see why. On the Formum tab the setnumber should be without -1 or -2, etc.

It now seems all submitted LDraw files for the OMR are all on RB too.

You where faster.  Wink
Should we move this discussion to a extra Thread?
But i do not know where.  Sad

If any Set is not on rebrickable we can submit it to rebrickable. But at first we Should sent all known files to the OMR.
If nothing goes right, go left.

We can make a new Thread, but for now all submitted models (either on OMR or on Formum) are on RB now.

Still I am steadily looking for submitted files.
Once that is done, I'll start uploading to the OMR too.

Great, Johann!

I will continue to browse the forum to see what models are submitted and not yet on the OMR and put them in "our" spreadsheet.
