  1. Today
  2. Would be nice to get an error message box after importing to Rebrickable. Then it is easier to see, how many parts could be not imported and what the problem is. I wonder this is an "outdated" thing. These parts in these colors are available since 10 years... PS: I will try your hint
  3. Yesterday
  4. Yes that is what my problem is now with LDD, if not it is no problem. But it would be great if that can just work so i do not have to write down every part that needs to be that color. There are already so many part problems in LDD without a proper update the last 2 years. And on the moment i have no time to start with there are still to many problems in it for me, just like the conversion to a proper pdf takes to much time.
  5. Ah, I might have misunderstood you, my apologies. Right now, if you import and LDD file with LEGO color 298 Cool Silver it is changed to Rebrickable color 135 Pearl Light Gray. What you are asking is, can LEGO color 298 Cool Silver be translated to Rebrickable color 80 Metallic Silver when importing an LDD file? If that is what you are asking, sure, that can be done, without changing any parts or inventories. Let my check my background documentation tomorrow to see if those colors match enough, if they do, the change can be made immediately.
  6. If needed i can do point 1 no problem(but give me a little time i'm finishing 25 mocs) but Metallic Silver is already split in all sets it is only for the import from lxf files. Maybe i'm missing something that can really be possible, but there is not 1 set that needs to be changed, and also not 1 PART, in all official Lego set the colors are right. My problem on this moment is only that all part colored in LDD with color 298 Cool Silver are changed to Pearl Light Gray and that is wrong, that is why i posted it in Help. And as far as i know ldraw in wrong if they say color 298 is Pearl Light Gray, also Bricklink has it as Metallic Silver. Is it so that if the Lego color 298 moves to Rebrick Metallic Silver all sets are changed to that color???? But if so that would be ok then, in my believe because it is Metallic Silver ore am i completely wrong.
  7. Rebrickable's color table is based upon the LDraw color definitions, just like the Bricklink/Studio color tables. Some colors are not defined within LDraw, so they are merged into an existing color. In this case, LEGO colors 179 ['Silver flip/flop', 'SILVER'] 298 ['Cool silver'] 296 ['Cool silver'] 131 ['Silver'] are all merged into Rebrickable 135 Pearl Light Gray. It is not a problem at all to split off Cool Silver, and create a new Rebrickable 298 Cool Silver for it, but when that is done, two things need to happen: (1) Someone has to check which parts were released in cool silver, and in which sets, and those inventories need to be changed. And only someone who has these parts and sets can do that. (2) Someone has to create that new color definition for POV-Ray and then render all those changed parts with the new color to create new LDraw images. I don't mind doing (2), but I can't do (1). Can you?
  8. The official Lego color 298 Cool Silver(Metallic Silver) is merged with color 179 Silver Flip Flop( Pearl Light Gray) why is that. This gives an error by downloading a lxf file all Metallic Silver parts are changed to Pearl light Gray, is there a reason for that. Brickset also has them as 2 separate colors see here Complete List And is it possible to move 298 to Metallic Silver so the import error will disappear by lxf files????
  9. Nathan is working on it... -smile- THX for reporting the problem!
  10. Hi, Lebostein, I tried your studio file myself, and got the same errors. Detected Stud.IO file Processing file version 2.0.1_127 Found 1 Models Converting parts/sets from scheme: LD Failed to find any items Errors: Part 86210 not found (need Quantity 3 Color 47) Part u9241 not found (need Quantity 4 Color 0) The problem is that a Studio import seems to use the LDraw import mappings, and those are not as up-to-date as our Bricklink mappings. It makes sense, as Studio using LDraw internally, but it does mean you might run into these errors most often. This one I solved by: adding 86210 as BL map to 60603 adding import map for 60603 for LDraw 86210 removing the import map in 57999 for LDraw 55423 adding added import map in 57999 for LDraw u9241 My test works now, obviously you do get some warning about the translation. Does that solve your problem, too?
  11. Plate 2x3 (3021) shows "No image available" for yellow in the gallery of available colors. The image is also missing from my part lists.
  12. For example wheels and windows like that:
  13. Parts in a Custom List are not included in your All My Parts count. They cannot be removed from your part lists or set lists available for building. When you use the Build This Custom List button, it takes you to the Find My Parts page. There is a notice there. "Note that no changes are made to your collection, this is just a way to help you figure out where to get your parts from."
  14. So, I would like to do the following: - Design in LDraw each model I have made physically. - Import the LDraw file into rebrickable as a custom list. - Mark the custom list as assembled so the corresponding parts are no longer marked as buildable in my collection. - Get the list of all my buildable parts. - See whether that list matches the parts in my storage and rework my "loose parts" and "lost parts". Is this possible or would that be a new suggestion?
  15. Last week
  16. I was reffering to these:
  17. Thanks for the really apropos description of the problem. There is a solution coming for this, but it may take some time. Suggestion for now: Click on a part with No Image Available to access the pop-up window. If there is a correct image there, it is a thumbnail problem, and should be reported here just for data purposes. If the pop-up image is also missing, use the full detail page to verify that there is an actual element or LDraw image available. If both of these show No Image, use your best judgement of whether it warrants a change request, or it is part of this ongoing problem and report it here.
  18. I was talking about sets, not MOCs. Any MOC designer can add as many links to the MOC description as they please. We can't automate that, because most MOCs do NOT have official LEGO instructions. LDraw might be a third filetype, I agree with that.
  19. in that case some of my old mocs should be linked that way rather than having a MOC entry. I also have some LDraw models of some small official sets.
  20. Sure, but we already have those - in the side bar under instructions we have links to both Brick Instructions and Brickset. Knowing that those PDF are much larger in filesize then 3D model, I think it makes sense to leave the PDF's to sites like LEGO itself, Brick Instructions or ToysPeriod. But I don't think the LEGO website will ever host LDD files, let alone Studio files...
  21. A bit odd order to add things, wouldn't links to instructions be more important than 3D models and why not just have one link for each and don't limit it to a specific instruct or 3d model file type. it would be really good to be able to add these files like you can on MOCS on regular sets/sub sets
  22. I'm seeing the same missing thumbnails as Lebostein (for 4032a it happens twice). I've also been seeing this site wide and it appears to be part/color dependent. For example, 4032a is fine in black and Reddish Brown on this page but broken in Red and White. At least this bug is consistent - once an thumbnail is bad, it is bad everywhere. For example, the part overview page at shows every color but Red and White working. I've submitted a few CRs about particular ones I've noticed and a refresh has often fixed the color/part combo I mention but sometimes breaking a different color/part combo that wasn't broken before. It's kind of became a game of wack-a-mole. Few others I've seen (and this was on a quick check of about 20 sets - around 15 of which had something missing since these are often common parts). I should note there may be other colors of these parts impacted, these were just the ones I saw the "No Image Available" graphic. 2431 Yellow, 2730 Light Bluish Gray, 3021 Yellow, 3680 Black, 3937 White, 15068 Tan, 30377 Light Bluish Gray, 32828 Black Hope the extra examples, help. If you want, we can add more as we see them to this thread until this gets fixed to at least capture the errors.
  23. My order is not in yet, but when i see them that would be great, many parts are imported in the wrong color so that is not the problem. Yes i know that is because you use gmail and that is banned by my provider due to the large amounts of spam send by gmail, sorry. Last week i did have contact with my provider about that and sometimes it gets trough and some times not, it is depending on the main 3 anti spam organizations if you email is in the registry i will not receive you're emails till the registry is cleaned up. By my provider it goes automatically they switch every few weeks my ip address the anti spam registry is gone. You can try the mailing of the forum maybe that will work.
  24. I sincerely hope the folks at Eurobricks don't get mad at me, but I don't like the way they organized their collection of LDD files for official LEGO sets. First, the people who create these files have to store them themselves, so they are stored in many different places, and some times the links aren't working. The Forum based interface is very slow, and it has no real search facilities (other then using Google search). And finally, they have duplicate entries for many sets, as they keep LDD files generated with older version when a newer version is added. I also presume the maintenance of those pages is very, very time consuming. In my *personal* opinion we should not add links to those files, but Rebrickable should host the actual files. At max two files for each set, one LDD, one Studio. No need for images (we already have the set image). For each file a notes field where the submitter can report problems with the model, and a submit procedure similar to sets and inventories, so with approval of an admin. If a file for a newer version is submitted, the old version is deleted. In the set comments people can respond to the quality of the models. In a later stage set photos could be made available, similar to MOC photos. Then people could also submit renderings of official sets. Just my thoughts, no idea about the technical impact or the amount of additional diskspace required, but this would be my preferred solution. If you agree, let's hear it.
  25. Only 1 small problem there are a lot of them which are offline/removed by the owner, i did ask about it and that is the responsibility of the owner of the lxf files to maintain them on there own website. Only the inventory is still there, so a direct link will cause many link errors.
  26. Yeah, I found this too. Just thought it would be awesome if there was a direct link provided within Rebrickable for each official set.
  27. Hard to list. In every set I have I see a handful missing images. For example here: Missing images: 99781, 15068, 33291, 3633, 4032a
  28. Thanks for letting us know where you are seeing the problem. Can you tell us some specific parts? @Nathan has been working on images site-wide and sometimes fixing one thing causes problems in another area.
