How to generate building guide in Stud.io?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I organised an LDD contest on my youtube channel and I've received some designs in LDD and Stud.io format. The ones from LDD (*.LXF) can be opened in Stud.io, but not the other way around. The winning design is a Stud.io file. I've uploaded it to a Bricklink Baseplate but I can't find anywhere how to generate a building guide. I can click "step view", but it doesn't do anything (the desing appears to have 2 steps with all the changes in the first step). Is this where the building guide should be??

1. Is there a way to generate a building guide in Stud.io, if so how?
2. If I can convert the Stud.io file into an LDD file, I could open it in LDD and use the Buidling Guide view mode but it seems this is not possible?

Do you have encountered this problem? I really need a solution, since the design has over 1500 parts :wacko: I hope you can help me out!

Hello Arjen,

I believe that you can export from Stud.io to LXF? If you can you can use the LDD building guide. This will only work for part thats are in the LDD catalog tho. 

If not the only way to see a building guide in LDraw/Stud.io is to have the steps manually created as you build.

You can't directly export from Stud.io to lXF but thanks for the tip: because of it I noticed the export possibility to LDraw, I totally overlooked that! LDraw is again importable in LDD. Had to change some item numbers but it works just fine.
