  1. Not really. The pbg files are only a parts list. So you can build a model in LDCad using a limited number of bricks (for example if you want to build an alternate model, or if you just want to digitally recreate an existing model). There isn't a way to turn that list into an LDraw model. LDD Manager used to be able to turn a parts list into an LXF file, but that software has been abandoned. There is (was) also peeron_to_MLCad which creates an LDraw file from a peeron inventory, but A: that software is ancient by now and B: Peeron is ancient too Ah well, this is all a bit useless. It should work on Linux though... If you have any problems, you can always come by the LDraw forums to ask for help
  2. Oh, now I see. I Didn't notice the difference between the text and the link. I already fixed it yesterday myself anyway. Thanks!
  3. Rebrickable part 973c17 is/was a bit wonky, but the Bricklink ID is not 973c73. 973c73 is DBG, which is this one:
  4. I believe this has been discussed by the admins before. And If I remember correctly it was agreed it would be a nice feature, but there was some disagreement about the (technical/under the hood) implementation. But don't quote me on that

    Plan ändern

    I can imagine that is pretty annoying. I think @Nathan should take a look at this.
  6. You can only use the file in LDCad. To use it, navigate to: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\LDCad\partBin\default\sets And put the exported pbg file there. Then open up LDCad and in a part window/tab go to sets and your exported pbg should be there (although without image, since Rebrickable doesn't export an image with the pbg). It's maybe a bit cumbersome, but I believe Roland (the author of LDCad) wants to improve it in LDCad 2.0, but don't qoute me on that To make it a little less of a hassle I added the location of the pbg files to my quick-locations in Windows so I don't have to traverse through all these folders everytime. Hope that helps EDIT: just noticed this post is a week old already. I completely missed it before, because I have some stupid formatting/layout problems with Chrome since recently (long story, doesn't matter). Ah well...
  7. I see I have been summoned by Simon I fully agree. Not only would I like to see tags for parts, but also a category/subcategory system for parts and a reorganization of the categorization of parts at Rebrickable. But, it would take a ton of time and we don't have much admins so progress (if any?) is/will be going pretty slow... But this topic is not about parts so if you have any thoughts on the matter, feel free to make a new topic about it to keep things... organized
  8. Could be this part: But the Rebrickable entry is a bit... incomplete (part number is wrong, missing relationships etc.). Bricklink has more information: EDIT: Or this part:
  9. I don't have that part, but that part is in set 8456 which contains this part which is in set 8421 which contains this motor which I do have. And that motor can be connected to power functions via that PF -> 9V cable. So, I think you can use your parts using that cable, but I'm not 100% sure.
  10. The bottom of the light gray connector is the 9V connection. What light and sounds bricks do you mean?
  11. He was referring to the app and not the website I don't know either how to get a -2 set in the app though... Good question

    Moc search

    Well, there isn't really a filter, but you can go the Build page here: And then under 'Change Build Options' deselect 'Include Official Sets' and only select' Include Custom Sets'. It won't return 100%-only matches, but it's sorted on percentage so the first results should be the 100% matches (or as close as possible with your inventory). Hope that helps
  13. I don't think reporting other element-ids will be that useful. In a lot of cases. In this case, the element-id was added before information from Lego was available, and thus 'refreshing' the element-id triggered the system into trying to download the information again. In a lot of cases that has no effect, because the ids are added 'manually' from instructions etc. and there will never be more information from Lego. There is not an 'official' API, but Rebrickable (and Brickset) use the internal API used for the replacement-parts section of the Lego site. You can look up the requests that that section of the site sends (and receives) and then mimic those to get information from Lego.
  14. That can happen when Lego did not supply information about the element-id in question. You see, Rebrickable (and other websites) retrieve information (element-id, design-id, name and color) directly from Lego, but they don't always supply information for all parts. So, when Lego did not supply a design-id, a part still always has a part-num which is in 99% of the cases the design id, but taken from another color of the part or from the physical part itself. Btw, your element-id 6133767 should return a design-id now
  15. I think what you're looking for is already a feature within Rebrickable. When you press Build on a set or MOC, it shows a page with the parts (if any) you are missing. On that page, there's a button green button that says 'Find My Parts for this Build'. If you click that button, it shows a (big) table which parts are located in which sets from your collection It's not complete in terms of all your sets (as it calculates the best combination of sets), but it's something at least
  16. Technic is certainly not 'in the shadows' as far as I know. I'm also mainly a Technic builder and Technic is by far not a minority. The Technic forum on Eurobricks is one of the most active subforums on there. The best selling Lego sets of last year (in Germany at least) contained the (obviously on AFOLs focused) Porsche set. And the majority of popular MOCs here on Rebrickable is Technic (last year there was a monthly contest where the most popular free MOC of the month would win a prize, I believe 10 out of 12 winners were Technic models). I did hear that Technic is a lot more popular in Europe/Asia than it is in America though.
  17. Well, there are some standards/numbering conventions. The pr suffix is used for parts with a print. the pat suffix is used for parts that don't have a print but a second color plastic, most of these kind of parts can be found in the Bionicle/Hero Factory parts, for example: Granted, the difference can be a bit vague. Especially in the case of this chameleon which has a pattern (the tail) and a print (the face). Since someone once decided to use the pat suffix for the first 2 chameleons (I didn't change the first two) I just used it for the third too. The parts with the pb suffix once came from Bricklink. If I remember correctly Rebrickable once used the same numbering system as Bricklink, but at some point that wasn't allowed and Rebrickable (and Brickowl) had to change the numbers to something of their own. In Rebrickable's case the pr system. There are however some parts left unchanged... You can even find some printed parts with yet another numbering-standard; those are based on LDraw parts. I have no idea why these ever got those numbers, but they are there...
  18. The part number had to be changed to Rebrickable's standards. It's now in line with the other chameleons as you can see here: You can submit a change request for the Bricklink part number, that way you get some points
  19. Feature request of the day: the ability to view which parts I have exactly enough of for a specific set/moc/list. Why? Well, whenever I want to build something I not only check for missing parts but also parts for which I (should) have exactly enough of. Sometimes I might have enough according to Rebrickable, but in reality they are either in use, lost etc. Not sure how to implement it though, maybe another outline-color in the inventory. Something like dark-green for plenty and light-green for exactly enough?
  20. It seems the 'Buy Parts' tab on a custom lists is doubling all parts. I have a list with 751 parts and on the buy parts tab it lists stores with 631 parts as 42%. Even more annoying: the Bricklink Wanted List exports actually also exports all parts twice (after which Bricklink starts to whine that the wishlist contains double entries; well, yeah, the whole list is double ). EDIT: well, that is weird. The problem is gone now
  21. The year-filter on the search page defaults to '1990 to 3000'. When you move either end, the 3000 changes to 2018. Just a minor thing, filter seems to work fine otherwise.
  22. Maybe it already exists and I'm just blind, but it would be nice to be able to exclude alternate mocs from the build results. It's pretty obvious that I have 100% of the parts to build an alternate moc for a set I have. I'd rather see which non-alternate mocs I can build. If that makes sense
  23. Het probleem is al bekend Soms werkt het na een paar keer refreshen. We just have to wait for @Nathan now, since he's the only one with the powers to (hopefully) solve the problem...
  24. But that's about set images. @Rexfelis was asking about part images
  25. Yes, take a look at /api/v3/lego/parts/{part_num}/colors/{color_id}/ in the documentation
