Oh ok. Now I have to figure out where the middle button is on my buttonless MacBook :pir-sceptic:

When I made Brick Studio it didn't really cross my mind that it could be used on a Mac. But now I know that there is also a couple of other people using it on Mac.

I remember that at some point I implemented the same camera controls as LDD but I changed it to be more like blender afterward.
If I remember correctly, I wanted to make it so that you could choose the camera rotation button (middle or right) so I'm sure the code is still there.

When I have some spare time I will try adding back that feature so you can rotate the camera!

Don’t worry. I’m dual booting to windows. I just have to check in the mouse settings how the 3rd button setting is. 

For blender to rotate I am using the x-y-z 'hud' thing at the upper right. Not sure how difficult it is to implement this.

Also would it be possible to add Platform ID 100 (DUPLO) ?

LDD-New-Parts/1005179 - is 98169 now at main · sttng/LDD-New-Parts (github.com) -  98073_41140.fbx

Most interestingly there is an xml file for 41140 (the female connector), but not for the body.

Update:

OK, I think I got the geometry kind of right. Anyway connections and collisions still pending.

Many thanks !!

By the way , speaking of triceratops I think there an issue with the head ( 40389 ) of the old version , it didn't fit in the neck-tail piece ( 40375 ) :

Can you pm me a screenshot of the parts that do appear in the lxf?

Sorry for the delayed response, but here are the details.

Here is the error message, and here is a screenshot of the parts which do appear. I also saved 210116.lxf a second time after the error message appeared and it can be found here. I just checked and the brick count remained the same at 135, so it seems odd for the error message to appear.

There’s two parts missing in your new file: 98169 (Triceratops head assembly, should be behind the legs) and 11947 (Technic panel 2x5, should be behind the arms with pins, in front of the balloon dog).

These two parts couldn’t be loaded and therefore weren’t saved.

As a note, the triceratops head doesn’t load for me either but it may be due to collisions in the file because I can re-add it.

BTW, I just stumbled upon an old post of mine in an old LDD bugs and issues topic. I noticed that part of this issue has already been fixed since the release of the series of un(official) updates, so here are the remaining unsolved issues.

When using the colour filter to select 40-Transparent in the regular mode of LDD, a number of other bricks in different colours will also be filtered in and displayed in the menu, which also means that these bricks are actually partially incorrectly coloured, but after inserting them into the model they’re all fine (except for one), so it’s mostly just something to do with the menu. This issue is now present only in the following two bricks.

1. Part 3069: Flat Tile 1x2 (Image). In this case filtering Transparent will end up with three colours: the Transparent one, the 311-Tr. Bright Green one and another nearly Transparent one. The second one is filtered in since its sides are incorrectly painted in Transparent. The third one should actually be in 294-Phosph,Green (I applied the 294 colour filter and it also showed up in the menu), but other than having most of it painted incorrectly as Transparent, you will end up with the Transparent version if you insert it (unlike the second one which will correctly insert the Tr. Bright Green version, so this specific brick has more underlying problems than just a menu glitch). This glitch has remained unchanged even since the (un)official updates.

2. Part 3626 Mini Head (Image). In this case filtering Transparent will end up with four two colours: the Transparent one, the 311-Tr. Bright Green one, and the 294-Phosph,Green one and the 143-Tr. Fluore. Blue one. The three two extra bricks are filtered in since their tops and bottoms are all incorrectly painted in Transparent (the screenshot is currently outdated as only the 294-Phosph,Green one shows up now).

Hope to see these three incorrectly coloured bricks fixed too and thanks as usual!

Thanks for the information. I successfully reinserted both bricks in alternative locations and saved the file without the error message appearing upon reopening, so I guess it must have been some sort of collision errors in the source file that caused them to be removed, as I made sure to update my LDD correctly and not modify the original file after a direct download.

For the Triceratops head it seems the assembly was missed to be included in the parts pack (the head is a combination of the skull and the pin part - similar to for example the T-Rex or Carnosaurus head).

Oh, yeah, right, that explains why I can’t load 210116.lxf but can see/use the part: there’s only the part, not the assembly.  As it’s not in LDraw, I hadn’t looked further.

Ah, yesterday I re-added the *.g and *.xml files, but I forgot about the assembly file... It will be added to the pack this afternoon.

Seems the heads collision at the back (neck) need to be adjusted. I will have a look at it.

Update:

Fixed - get 40389.xml from my repo and I guess it will be included in the next release.

I have to re-include the assembly file for 98169. 11947 shouldn't be included so the lxf from the pack does not include it anymore.

Update: check Part 90639: Shell A 5M Ball Snap ø10.2 as well, if you filter Transparent the 47-Tr. Fluore.Redd. Orange one and the 297-Warm Gold one will show up, as most of their surfaces are all incorrectly painted in Transparent.

Yes!! Yes!! For the specialized parts and regular parts (tiles, slopes etc.).

You don't have to worry about naming; I will do that for you to make it easier  :)

Hi Stephan and team,

are we going to distinguish between printed parts and stickers ? I think LDD so far only had decals for printed parts - correct me if i'm wrong. Also in that sense, does a printed part for 50746 (cheese slope) exist ? ? I only found stickers.

Hello gang. Check this out!

I finished throwing this together in Blender a while ago. It's a custom combination of parts #10048 and #13565. The goal is to make a custom "Fourth Doctor" hair piece to use in LDD. However, I am stuck on collision and connection set-ups in Brick Studio. I placed the connection and collision where I supposed they needed to be, but once inside of LDD itself, I chose the piece and the program shutdown. Any help or assistance on the matter will be appreciated.

You can send me the xml and .g files and ill have a look.

No, as in, we can add both. For 50746 two prints exist, in the Dragon Boat Race set.

If I remember correctly the small square window was/is decorable with spider webs, coming from the Monster Hunter's Haunted House stickers.

What I did to distinguish between prints and stickers, is adding a 1 pixel thick black line around the sticker png file. This makes it looking like it's lying on top of the part.

 

Stickered parts will be named like this: Sticker sheet ID + sticker number. If the sticker number is <10, there's no problem. If it's >10 it's a bit more tricky (mainly when wanting to add the stickered part to the custom palette.

Which is the 2nd one ?

I always use Brickset’s Database to check everything. According to them, there are actually three Printed versions of the Cheese Wedge: https://brickset.com/parts?query=Roof tile 1x1x2/3, as shown near the end of the list here (set to show 500 items before viewing).

And a quick reminder that the Materials.xml gives all the RGB values for colors (which can be used to create the color of the print/sticker).
