The official collection of Lego parts from LDraw was updated this week.
This collection of “virtual” pieces is used by programs as LDView, ldglite and l3p.
The leocad program uses its own “pieces” library, but is usually updated right after the LDraw parts library.
I updated the scripts for both packages and submitted the results to SlackBuilds.org, where [...]
Another update that was long over due… LeoCAD 0.75.2 is out, and the pieces library has grown from 3.934 to 4.351 pieces!
The 0.75.2 release mainly resolves some bugs and crashes, but it needs the newer pieces library to work, so do update both packages!
I already submitted the new SlackBuild scripts and the pre-built packages can [...]
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 [...]
Version 2010-01 of the LDraw parts library was released recently, so I created a new easy-to-install Slackware package for it.
As always, shortly after this release, the LeoCad pieces library was also updated, to version 3506.
Both packages can be downloaded from my site.
Another package has been updated, this time for ldglite version 1.2.4
It’s a simple version update that corrects some small bugs.
As always, packages can be downloaded from my site while the SlackBuild is in the pending queue.
The parts library for LeoCAD has been updated and now contains 3.299 pieces.
The updated Slackware package (~ 14MB) can be downloaded from my site.
I built a new package with LDraw_data for Slackware, containing the latest (200903) library from ldraw.org. Check my site for the pre-built while the SlackBuild is in pending.
After some requests, I created a Slackware package with the lgeo parts library. It can be downloaded from my site.
If you prefer, you can download the library from the author’s website and use the SlackBuild to create your own package.
I created an updated package with the LDRAW Library of Lego pieces that includes all parts up to September, 16th, 2009.
The “unix-complete” file from ldraw.org has not been updated for years, so this package was based on the Windows file “complete.zip” but can be used without any problems under Slackware.
As always, the package can be [...]
Some time ago I promised to give some basic instructions on how to create nice images of Lego constructions with POV-Ray on Linux. Now that Christmas is arriving, I finally found some time to convert my own instructions into something that can almost be called a “tutorial”
What will you need:
LeoCAD – to “build” [...]
