  1. @Toltomeja has created a software that can mirror models in LDD. It doesn't yet support every possible brick type, but it's a great start. Read more and download here: https://github.com/mackoo13/LDDReflector
  2. @njsokalski Please note that the topic you posted in was over 2 years old. A friendly tip is that normally in forums you don't bump an old topic if it's older then, say 6 months, unless you have something very important to add to the topics itself.
  3. Dragonator has recently finished building the 10255 Assembly Square and has written up a lengthy review for us to indulge in. The set commemorates the 10th anniversary for the Modular sets. Be sure to check it all out in our Town forum by clicking here.
  4. I split this into a new topic since it didn't relate to the LDD 4.3.10 release.
  5. Let's see how it unfolds
  6. What is this supposed to mean?
  7. In the end, it's like dr_spock said: We all have a choice, and if we don't like the terms, we don't have to use the service. We've talked a lot about terms on other sites like Flickr, MOCPages etc. But I guess the case we're talking about is different to when sharing a picture of a MOC or so, because with a digital 3D model you have the complete structure of the model, not only a picture and so the "value" of the file is much higher. I'd like to compare sharing of digital LEGO models more to sites like Turbosquid, Sketchup's 3DWarehouse or even Shapeways, then to Flickr and MOCPages. Anyway, following up on 62Bricks last post: I'm wondering, what happens if someone takes an official LEGO set and uploads it to the public gallery. Is the design not originally the property of TLG? Or if you upload someone else's MOC with small adjustments (we've seen it happen in the past). What is it really that a user gives BL a licence for? Is it the LEGO-model itself (the design), or is the work that went into re-creating the digital model? Furthermore, if you upload a model to the public gallery, are you also at the same time giving BrickLink a future right to commercialize those models, for example using them in contests, or using them to enhance other parts of the site (like connecting official set models to the BL set database)? What does the "license" given to BrickLink really cover?
  8. I stand corrected. However, to me this more raises the question why MOCPages would need such a wide statement as "perpetual, irrevocable and sub-licensable". It feels like they have more or less copy-pasted standard statements. Brickshelf and Brothers-brick seems to be more "down-to-earth" terms that are more aligned to the LEGO fan target audience? (best to end with a question mark this time )
  9. Yeah, there seems to be a difference between BL and the other sites mentioned. BrickLink requests (for the public gallery etc): a) an irrevocable, perpetual license (i.e. everlasting), b) sub-licensable As far as I can tell, the other sites (MOCPages, Brother-Brick etc) does not mention any these (rather important) details. The "perpetual" is not even included in the similar BL MOC Terms of Service (but the sub-licensable part is)
  10. If possible, please share the LXF (or portions of it that contain the problematic area). It makes it easier for us here in the forum to help you look into the problem.
  11. A review of studi.io beta is now up on Brickset: http://brickset.com/article/24920/building-with-stud-io Anyway, apparently there is some nasty fine print in the Legal agreement where you hand over all your designs to BrickLink when you upload models. But it will rewritten apparently. Could be worth keeping an eye on though. Not sure where BrickLink is going with this?
  12. If that is the case, are there any news/info about BrickLink making their created parts available to the Ldraw community? Has it been discussed?
  13. Hispabrick issue 26 is hot of the presses. Still free and made by fans for fans. In this issue you will find a lot of the information from the LEGO Fan Media Days, interviews to brick artists Sean Kenney and Chris McVeigh, author of The LEGO Christmas Ornaments Book. And much more.... You can download it here
  14. For some accessories (e.g. 10052), you can get around this by first putting the head on, then the accessory. An alternative method is to put the accessory first, and when you place the head, make sure to "force it" downwards and it will snap to the position closer to the body. However, this doesn't work for all accessories, for example for the cape you showed.It is a limitation in LDD due to some collision errors that prevents the head from seating to the body. I suppose it could be worked around by LEGO if they reduce the collision box size in the cape, but it could have other implications. (PS: We discuss multiple LEGO Cad tools in the this forum, so I added a "LDD" to your topic title to help clarify )
  15. Like said above, unfortunately there's no way to import parts into LDD. As for 4529239, looking at BrickLink it translates to a 1x1 Cone, which is indeed in LDD. Have you switched over to Extended Mode? That'll give you access to all the bricks in LDD
