  2. LPUB Issues/Questions

    Can you give me an example? Here is code from the Lsynthed portion. The problem is, the hose is 1.5 studs long which isn't an official part... 0 STEP 0 !LPUB STEP_NUMBER PLACEMENT LOCAL TOP_LEFT PAGE_HEADER INSIDE 0.0457962 1.02617 1 0 -59 -56 -66 0.999999 -0 0 0 0.965925 -0.258819 0 0.258819 0.965925 30377.dat 1 0 -81 -56 74 -0.999999 0 -0 0 0.965925 -0.258819 -0 -0.258819 -0.965925 30377.dat 1 0 -59 -56 74 -0.999999 0 -0 0 0.965925 -0.258819 -0 -0.258819 -0.965925 30377.dat 1 0 -81 -56 -66 0.999999 -0 -0 0 0.965925 -0.258819 0 0.258819 0.965925 30377.dat 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 -85 -15 76 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 -55 -15 76 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 -85 -15 76 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 -85 -55 -68 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 -55 -55 -68 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 -85 -55 -68 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 -85 -55 74 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 -55 -55 74 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 -85 -55 74 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 -85 -16 -68 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 -55 -15 -68 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 -85 -16 -68 -0.0219 10.7892 0 0.9998 0.2362 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 1 0 -54.525902 -14.9812 -68 -0.0395 -19.896799 0 0.9992 -0.7873 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 35 -21 -62 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 65 -21 -62 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 35 -21 -62 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 115 -21 -62 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 145 -21 -62 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 115 -21 -62 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 35 -21 70 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 65 -21 70 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 35 -21 70 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END 0 SYNTH BEGIN TECHNIC_FLEX-SYSTEM_HOSE 0 0 SYNTH SHOW 1 2 115 -21 70 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS01.dat 1 4 145 -21 70 -0 -1 0 1 -0 0 0 0 1 LS02.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED BEGIN 1 0 115 -21 70 0 30 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 LS50.dat 0 SYNTH SYNTHESIZED END 0 SYNTH END -Jeffinslaw
  3. LPUB Issues/Questions

    The LSynth parts do not show up in LDView... hmmmm.... And I have made the switch from LPub 4 to LPub3D last night after having a few too many issues. Noticed a decent improvement so far -Jeffinslaw *EDIT* I created an "Unofficial" folder within my Bricksmith folder and added a "parts" and "p" folder and when I open LDView, the synthesized parts and the constraint pieces now show up. They synthesized parts do not show up in the Parts List however... getting somewhere... I'm on a Mac by the way.

    That looks like it would be a pretty decent substitution. Great idea. -Jeffinslaw
  5. LPUB Issues/Questions

    For those who are interested, there was a line at the top of the file that needed to be removed, the line was: "0 !LPUB PLI INCLUDE_SUBMODELS GLOBAL TRUE" once that line was removed, things have been working well. Now to just figure out why my Lsynthed parts aren't showing up... -Jeffinslaw
  6. LPUB Issues/Questions

    That did not work either unfortunately :( I'd be willing to PM you the file I am working on for you to look through?
  7. LPUB Issues/Questions

    I am using LPUB4 version 0_0_10 for Mac OS X, the latest one for OS X found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/lpub4/files/
  8. LPUB Issues/Questions

    Right clicking on the specific part in the PLI only results in "Change Part Margins."
  9. LPUB Issues/Questions

    Thank you for your assistance! Unfortunately, when I right-click on the PLI, I get the following options: Change Shape Move Bill of Materials Change Bill of Materials Background Change Bill of Materials Border Change Bill of Materials Margins I guess I am going to have to unpack the callout. I can try and fit it all onto one page though. -Jeffinslaw
  10. LPUB Issues/Questions

    I don't necessarily rebuild it but move parts around so they are in the correct step if that makes sense? I create the steps with MLCad/Bricksmith as my stud.io designs are all "one step." -Jeffinslaw
  11. LPUB Issues/Questions

    I do not use LDD, thanks for the suggestion though! My workflow is as follows: create design in stud.io export to .ldr format rebuild model step by step in Bricksmith if I'm on my Mac or MLCad if I'm on my desktop create instructions with LPUB I really wish stud.io would implement some sort of instruction feature as well as Lsynth. The second would be much, much appreciated. -Jeffinslaw
  12. Hi guys, been working with LPUB here the past few days and I am having a few issues that I can't seem to find solutions to. Props to anyone who creates instructions with this program, it is very finicky. My issues: I can't figure out how to remove the complete sub-models from the parts list. I've been able to remove the parts list from the callout but the assembled sub-models still show up in the parts list with all of the required parts. Also, I can not figure out how to move a callout to another page (if this is even possible). This callout is somewhat large and I am having issues sizing it correctly for the page. That brings up another issue, whenever I try to change the margins of an individual callout, nothing changes. This program is highly frustrating to say the least. I've attached a screenshot of the specific step that is causing me so much issues. part_list_issue by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr As you can see, I've crossed out the parts in the part list that I want to remove. I also want the first smaller callout to be displayed underneath step 1 and 2 such that the whole callout will fit within the page. Hopefully you guys are able to help! -Jeffinslaw
  13. Building BMR Freight cars

    They're becoming very rare as well.
  14. Building BMR Freight cars

    Any ideas on what to do since part 48336 in reddish brown has become incredibly rare? Using black just doesn't look as good. -Jeffinslaw
  15. Custom 3d Printed Steam Drivers

    Got my shapeways order today! Somehow ended up with eight! additional wheels! Score! Here is a picture comparing the injection molded LEGO flanged/blind drivers to the "Black Premium Strong and Flexible" and to the "Black Strong and Flexible." 3D Printed Boxpok Drivers by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr As you can see, it is definitely an improvement but still quite a ways off from the injection molded pieces. Wish Ben Fleskes could create some new drivers but injection molding is expensive... -Jeffinslaw
