I built the 7998 Heavy Hauler main unit in LDD using LU mode, and have found a problem with rotation tool whereby it will not properly rotate parts which are attached to parts which extend/retract. Please see the attached .lxf file (in zip archive) for more details.
NOTE: This only contains the first truck, neither the driver of the truck nor the second dump truck trailer unit are included.
I would like to request a feature enhancement for placing parts, especially large parts like the dump truck container itself: Please allow LDD some method of pointing to an attachment point on one part, and an attachment point on the main model, and allow this method to be used by LDD to figure out what angle the part has to be at in order for that part to seat properly onto the model. It does do this for some parts automatically, but only if they have studs on them, studless it seems do not get this treatment.
