Coming Soon- MLCad Parts List to BrickLink Wanted List XML Converter

7 posts in this topic

6721356777_ab7b28d5cb_z.jpg

Is anyone interested if I share this tool I've written to support my own projects?

Basically it takes MLCad generated Parts List in a text file and generates the proper XML to upload to a BrickLink Wanted List.

Current Features:

* - Supports mpd files:

- - - Using multiple copies of a sub-model it adds the proper number of parts needed.

- - - Combines parts from all models in the file before generating the XML.

- - - If Color is specified for sub-model then it overrides the user set Main Color.

* - Select between New or Old Grays

* - User defines "Main Color"

* - User can set the Parts List ID

* - Automatically overrides some Part Numbers (for example "4093b" Train Base 6 x 28 to "4093a")

* - Ignores any parts that are "Edge_Color", I use this to include PF Connectors in the model but not the parts list.

* - Confirms with BrickLink that the part exists in the desired color.

Current Limitations (working on overcoming):

* - Sub-model file names can't have spaces

* - Colors conversion chart isn't complete

* - Parts conversion chart isn't complete

It's a Windows App, no plans to make Apple or Lunix version.

Feedback, suggestion etc are appreciated.

I'm not using MLCAD related softwares in this period, but surely your creation is very useful!

I would be very pleased if you decide to share it.

Unfortunately it is for windows only (is it a .net application?), so mac and linux users will not be able to take advantage of your work.

Email me

I hope he will provide a public link accessible to everybody, and not send it in this way.

PS: it is not a good idea to share "in clear" your email. Spam bots could read your address and overrun you with tons of spam! :tongue:
