  1. Hi Dump and welcome to Eurobricks. My first suggestion is to modify topic's title (editing the first post), in order to focus on the real problem. A generic request for help could not attract a user that could help you and will not be helpful for other users that could have the same problem in the future. About your problem, I suggest you a simple "strategy": - Select all the model except the two baseplates (you can use the classic selection rectangle) - Cut the model (CTRL+X), all will vanish but will be stored in memory - Drag the baseplates and place them as you prefer, without other elements it should be easy to avoid the "different levels" problem you describe. - Paste the model (CTRL+V) and place it on the baseplates To avoid problems, try this on a copy of your lxf file, maintaining the original one as backup.

    @Kevin Flemming It is your choice where to host files (except in particular situations such as in the LDD Official Sets topic, for example, where some requisites are needed), I suggested brickshelf or bricksafe essentially for two reasons: they ensured a long time presence for the files in the forum (many dropbox, mediafire, etc... links has been lost in time, with users asking us if someone have saved a certain file and can provide it, while for example bricksehlf links are still there after fifty fifteen years!) and they are lego-related hostings, that means that they are thought to provide all the feature useful for a LEGO user (for example stable hotlinks!), cannot be used as "trash can" (brickshelf for example is moderated and not lego related files removed). And, obviously, both are completely free (sorry I used the wrong word, not affordable but reliable, I mean). Note that these are not modern services that gather data and spread SPAM, these are services created from LEGO fans for LEGO fans. I cannot guarantee, obviously, but I can say I never received a SPAM mail from these services. Anyway, as I told before, it is your choice. About creating a separate topic, it is common politic to use an exiting "general topic" if available and still active. It should be the poster that should search and post properly, otherwise he/she should contact moderators and decide with them the better strategy. (especially when we are dealing with a general interest topic like this one)

    Hi Kevin, thanks for your contribution. About hosting the lxf files, I suggest you to use a LEGO related hosting such as brickshelf or bricksafe, that are affordable reliable and allow to host both images and lxf files and share that with hotlink. Both are very used here. Maybe there is a proper topic for decorations, take a look at the Section Index.
  4. As there is a specific tool that allows to create building instructions from a lxf file, you should try it first instead than convert to LDRAW and then use LPub3D. You can find the topic related to Blueprint here.
  5. It is the B model. It seems that the main model has not been built. So, if there is some volunteer....
  6. Index updated with informations reported until here.
  7. Probably the set is too rare and no LDD builder here own it. According to brickset, it is a promotional set sold in Billund only. About the LDD Official Sets topic, for me the scans of the instructions inside the set's box are good enough. So someone should simply find someone that owns the set and is available to share the scans.
  8. Index updated. 31 Sets has been added to the index (0 alternative, 4 duplicate, 0 incomplete). Check your sets and report errors or inaccuracies in the index, if any! No irregular sets this time! Check the irregular sets listed below to see if any of your previous entries need to be fixed. # new (Sub)Themes added Topic's Rules Updated.

  9. Hello Mr Calabar

    I have rebuilt the 42069 with new wheel arch from the Porsche. (parts n°24118)

    How I send you the lxf file?

  10. Please take a look at the Section Index (on of the two pinned topics in this section) where you will find the list of the more interesting topics, surely including the ones you are looking for.
  11. Try: "modify" or something similar instead than "open with", if available. Open the notepad and then drag and drop the icon of the batch file over it.
  12. Index updated with informations reported until here.
  13. Developer mode can disable collision check, but as the name itself says, it is not for production. Open the file in any other LDD installation will remove the bricks. Excluding a bug or a poorly moulded digital brick, the problem is due to something wrong in the building. Instead then try a workaround, the best practice would be to try to understand why the problem happens. Even if real bricks would allow to build the structure, probably the result would be an excessive strain for the bricks that would damage them over time. Anyway in your case the problems seems to be something wrong in the base of the column, maybe a slightly wrong angle that produce the collision in the upper part. Try to select, move and then replace the structure from the basis (or maybe share the lxf file).
  14. Index updated. 45 Sets has been added to the index (3 alternative, 3 duplicate, 0 incomplete). Check your sets and report errors or inaccuracies in the index, if any! No irregular sets this time! Check the irregular sets listed below to see if any of your previous entries need to be fixed. Topic's Rules Update.

  15. Again I remember: Please avoid to edit existing posts to add new modified entries. Besides it would be very helpful for me if you provide me a zippack with updated models if you update a large number of models as explained in the rules (no more needed for the models updated until now).
