MLCAD Question 2

Postby Duckman » Wed Jun 10, 2009 6:05 am

Does anyone know if MLCAD has included the 1 x 1 x 2/3 slopes in their parts list? You know, those new little tiny slopes that TLC have started to make?

Having trouble trying to design a MLCAD moc without them. >8(

Does anyone know how to help with this? :'(

Question 2.

Possibly a dumb question, but does anyone know how to shape lego string in MLCAD? It inserts string as a straight piece, but I'll be danged if I can figure out how to shape it???

Just recently this topic came up at 1000Steine.de. Someone posted two links, maybe these help you too.

The Lego part library is free distributed by lDraw organization.
MLCad uses this library to show you available part; updating MLCad does not update part library!!

you can download updated part library from the following links:
Base part library:
http://www.ldraw.org/Downloads-req-view ... cid-1.html (download February 2009 update)
Update
http://www.ldraw.org/modules.php?op=mod ... =&topic=26 (only 2009-1 update)
Unofficial parts
http://www.ldraw.org/Article14.html

Unzip the 3 downloaded files in the order you get them in c:\ldraw folder (check for correct paths) and run MKList utility to rebuild part list for MLCad.
If you do everything correctly u get the most updated version of the part library

Have you tried SR 3D builder also? It includes the full part library in a new fully 3D environment and is a valid Lego Editor, and you can open models built with MLCad

To shape string, hose, chain, etc, you need to use one of the Lsynth, or similar, protocol. Not really sure if string is able to be formed with it, but I know most of the flex hose can be.

Bugger, I have no idea what you are talking about. I know if you select the hose, it automatically lets you mould it how you want, but the string.... does anyone know?
