Hi Guys, I have a somewhat strange problem using the LDD. I did some search but couldn't find something about: Occasionally I use groups to groups some bricks together. And I occasionally delete the the bricks. And I often do not delete the grouping prior to the bricks deletion. And this seems to be the problem: LDD seems to be not able to handle this correct, the result is an empty group. Of course you can delete this group afterwards, but if you do this to often you end up with a huge (infinite?) amount of empty groups you can not delete. This wouldn't be that great problem, but the LDD considers these groups and suddenly needs a huge amount of RAM (a 4000 Brick LDD, usually 450MB of RAM consumption, suddenly consumes over 1.5GB) forcing the LDD to react very slowly when opening, saving the file and importing a model to this file (up to over a minute). --> so you end up with a somewhat corrupted LDD file you can't use efficient anymore. So my questions are: 1. Did anyone of you also have this problem? 2. Is there a solution to repair this file (e.g. loading the LDD into another CAD tool which ignores the groups and then reexporting it to LDD?) I you want I can upload the file in question later this evening. Thanks in advance and BR, Guenther
Hey y'all, I'm hoping to start a LEGO User Group for TFOLs this summer in Atlanta, and I have a few question I hope people can answer... First off, where is the best place for people to meet, based on experience? I know lots of people say libraries, but seeing as you can't be too loud (even in a study room) or have any food there, I'm not quite sure. I also have my LEGO/Youtube studio in my basement, but I'd be afraid until I get to know the members of the group that they would steal something...possibly? But yeah, that brings me to the next topic: how to get members? I'd prefer to keep the group small (like 12 or under people), and I only want people who are legitimately hardcore LEGO fans. So where to advertise? I mean, my youtube channel is obviously a great place, so there's that, but what about in the public? And finally, the third question: what to do? I know that lots of folks just like to hang out and talk LEGO and probably trade a bit, but I also wonder what else. I also have read about the organized builds, but I feel like until I could get a group started that wouldn't happen for a while, and the group would have to decide as a whole. As far as anything else, I've got nothing. Ideas? Thanks for the help.
