New Slackware packages for Lego data files and program

New pieces libraries

LDraw.org released its second update for 2010 of the pieces library this month. As always, a short time afterwards the updated pieces library for LeoCAD was also released.

New LeoCAD version

A new version of LeoCAD (0.75.1) was also released, fixing the Minifig wizard that was broken in the previous Linux versions. With it, you can easily create minifigs using all possible combinations of arms, tools, etc. and insert the result in your model.

Here are some examples of what you can do with it:
