Still many bug in uploading lxf files

Recommended Posts

This was allready opened a long time ago by me but there has been nothing done with it.

Problem now in LDD part 3794 is the old one without grove but rebrick makes it the b version with grove and that gives an error in every moc i make.

So when i use in LDD part 3794(without groove) rebrick has to load it as part 3794a can that be changed.

Also part 58120 is now changed to Orange but is only made in lbg/dbg so there is a further error is also new.

And the horses is also still a mess also the same problem with cowes it can be easlily solved but someone has to look into it.

Can't we make a special topic for read errors from LDD/lxf files, then we can solve all these problems for the future.

I build without errors but after uploading my file i allways have to correct many parst by hand, and that should not have to be so.

3794 - LDD doesn't differentiate between a and b does it? In which case, during import we have to assume it's the new current mold which is b.

58120 - how do you get Orange? If I import a file with 58120 Medium Stone Grey it is imported as LBG as expected.

I need more specifics for any other parts if they are not importing correctly.

Hi Nathan

Thanks you for you're replay.

I have made a test file with a few parts i have trouble with.

The 3794 used in LDD is the a version without the groove see also in the test file it is really without the groove, but it is set always to the b version and that is wrong.

I'm working with the 3794 which are only made in te a version so i have to correct all of them because they allways give color errors, the b version is made very short and did became the 15573.

If they have a groove i use the other in the LDD file with groove and that is set allways on 15573, LDD does not have the 3794b.

Also the engine 58120 and the actuator 61927 which get the wrong color after uploading.

And the first wave of parts that are completly ingored and there are more, i did post this allready in the past have to look for the rest.

Also a few colors are completly ignored while they should be set on color error.

@Nathan I don't know how you currently import lxf files, but maybe the newest (and continously updated) ldraw.xml could be of use to you? It's the file that LDD uses to export LDD to LDraw. The ldraw.xml file tells LDD what LDD part numbers should be exported to what LDraw parts numbers (and how to transform and translate the coordinates and rotations). Maybe you can use the LDD -> LDraw part number conversion in that file for (some problematic) parts? Just thinking out loud here :)

Ok I understand now :)

3794/15573 - should be good

I need to figure out the others still.

@legolijntje in v2 I used ldraw.xml with my own fixes (there were a lot of problems with it), but in v3 it's all in the database instead.

Great, send more files if you have them :)

I have improved the 58120 and 61927b imports now too.

For the animals, they are only ever used with printed parts but the LDD file has all unprinted parts. We need to decide which printed assembled part they should be imported as.

Hi Nathan

Sorry was very bussy with the part pictures.

Here my new test file 3 new parts in it, still not found my old error file.

http://bricksafe.com/files/Lucky-Ramses/test.lxf

http://rebrickable.com/users/Lucky-Ramses/lists/8161/ uploaded part test file.

 

For the animals maybe just the basic version to show what it is, for me that also can be the not printed version when i can see it i can change it to a better version to lift the part error.

98496 Bear not printed

64452 Cow not printed

10509 Horse movable legs not printed

4493c01 Horse old not printed same as 75998

Rules updated.

I don't have a way to improve the extension wire behaviour though, without rewriting a bunch of very sensitive code I have no intention of going near anytime soon.
