  1. Part of the reasons why LDD is popular is because it's an official product from lego. So if you google around for lego digital tools of course it's in the top hit list, and as a starter of course many will go for an official product first. Having said like many others for Mac OS there are not many alternatives (if you don't want to dual boot or fiddle around with wine). Adding to this I like the snapping and 'natural' hinging of parts, plus it's really easy to get you started. Of course grouping could be greately improved, as the overall performance. But then I think most of the casual builders don't target for enourmous builds - and even my 7 year old MacBook Air can handle 2000 parts models quite ok. So I expect more current machines will not feel so many performance problems with LDD. One more point is ease of use, plus that lxf as the official format can be used with lots of other tools. Would be overly happy if lego would support it more or make it open source though.
  2. [MOC] Regensburg type frigate

    Gorgeous!
  3. Star Trek TNG corridor / Opinion

    Thanks for the feedback everyone ! This is what I came up with
  4. I am working on a Star Trek TNG inspired corridor similar to this and asking for your kind opinion. I am trying to replicate these walls: I build the below small scene: In your opinion which Wall is better matching the original? The left (nearer to Rikers minifig) or the right (more far of Riker) ? Any opinion ? Thank you so much !
  5. Sorry to bother again and I only have this crappy picture Anybody know how the lift and the shaft was created? In this Shot it seems the lifts roof round plate directly touches the shaft. Also how where the shafts walls so slim and what about those round sliding doors. Finally the ground of the lift (not in the picture) seems to have a glowing hole - but it's all CGI I guess
  6. Please excuse if this is not the correct forum to ask. But anyone knows from which parts these hangers were made from:
  7. [MOC] TARDIS - Exterior and Interior

    I like the whole build. Very nicely done !
  8. You can see some short scenes here: It seems they used 4.3 and sometimes disabled physics checks.

  10. Google for "airplane lxf" or "airplane LDD" and see what you get. Should give you a good start to build on.
  11. LDD not deleting empty groups is a known issue I think. So heads up for the tip to edit the text file directly. Also LDD doesn't really handle adding to subgroups property I think - that is it will destroy all hierarchies you may have if you add a group of groups to a new group.
  12. I'm just wondering if LDD itself has some limits regarding i.e. maximum number of brick, size (area/volume) of the build, number of connections, etc. Or if a more powerful machine (RAM, GFX Memory) can compensate. Anyone knows ?
  13. This is based on Rick Sternbachs design wich you can see here: and here: It should be possible to connect multiple lifeboats with the magnet :)
