I have been asked several times to create LDraw models of the new PF motors, they are now available as unofficial parts. Don't forget to download all subparts and compositing elements!
PF parts newly created also include the AAA battery box and V2 PF IR-receiver.

Hi Philo,

Just saw this tread today. I'm almost done with my recent MOC, and therefore I do need the PF servo motor in Ldraw. So, THANKS a lot for designing this one!

But - if you allow me - I did use the battery box 8887 (with speed control) in the MOC as well. Do you have plans to design this one as well in Ldraw ?

If not, then I have to use the cover of the 64228.........

That battery box is already available as LDraw part (I don't know if it is already offically accepted though), but I found it in my SR3D Library:

You can download it here :classic:

TOP ! Must have missed it while searching the Ldraw directories. Now just for the last part in Ldraw: the Minifig Head Alien Squidman with Tongue and Black Eyes, Black Lines Pattern (Part 85947px3).

Regarding the MOC: Just a description: Pacton stenentrailer met Kennis kraan (Truck with trailer with moving crane, search on brands Pacton Floor C-line and Kennis Cranes). Expected H2-2013, BI's Q3-2013 maybe.... there are still 24hrs in a day, I do need more :laugh:

I just uploaded the blank head on Parts Tracker (http://www.ldraw.org...parts/85957.dat)

If someone posts a top view photo of the head (or a 600dpi scan) I'll consider doing the pattern...

Again, many thanks. I notice that you already finished the patterns when I logged on to Eurobricks... after scanning the alien. :classic:

Now it's my turn, finishing my latest MOC and starting BI's.

Hi Philo

Your work on the servo motor seems to have disappeared from the ldraw repository. Do you still have it? Thanks a lot in advance.

The servo and L motors are now official! If you don't have them, then you missed the latest LDraw update... You may get the latest update here. If you then still miss something, I suggest you reinstall complete.zip.

@N0sferatu
LDD don't support custom parts, so it is not possible to import it in LDD.

I thought you could draw up a part in LDraw, save as ldr, and LDD can pick it up?

No, LDD only uses parts and decorations available in its internal assets.lif file.
This file is "close" and generated by the LDD Team for each brickset's release.
Besides LDD and LDraw uses a different kind of geometry system to describe bricks and their interactions, so it would be necessary a conversion.

I found this link - http://wiki.ldraw.or..._LDD_conversion which lists the problems you mentioned and suggests a way to "update" LDD to make conversion possible. I'll report on any luck.

@N0sferatu
The problem is that it isn't possible to add bricks to LDD without hacking the software.
The problem was discussed in the past and LDD Team changed some thing in LDD from then on. You can find a reference in the Section Rules, forth rule.

Ah, thanks a lot @Calabar. As a newbie to Technic modeling I am quite starry eyed at the moment.

Does anyone know a good alternative to LDD on the Mac? I picked up Bricksmith however that doesn't seem as full featured.

I have read that SR3D Builder creates a similar environment, however is only on the PC.

Thanks again for the guidance.

Once you have downloaded the 'manual download' from the Ldraw site,you can then follow these steps on how to add new parts to Mlcad.

1)Open the downloaded parts folder and the Ldraw installation folder (c/program files/Ldraw) in two different windows.

2)In both windows you will see two folders named 'parts' and 'p'.
If you open both of these folders once more,you will then see another two folders called 's' and '48'.

3)Next copy and replace the contents of each matching folder  from the download to the matching folder on your computer,remember to replace the two sub folder's matching parts as well.

4)Finally if you open Mlcad and from the top left menu select 'scan parts',it should then tell you that it found new parts.

All done. :sweet:
