In an update to the news yesterday that LEGO was no long supporting the LEGO Digital Designer (LDD), LEGO Community Support Senior Manager Tanja Friberg has given a clarification on the popular program. Many fans were surprised it was said that LDD was no longer supported but that technically isn’t the case.
LEGO will still continue to support LDD with its functionality but the only difference is that there will not be automatic updates of the elements to the program, however new elements will be added from time to time. There’s no word on when these updates will occur.
Dear Ambassadors, I hope this will help clarify a bit of the confusion and misunderstanding from our end regarding LDD. TLG will remain committed to digital building going forward, in regards to LDD, this means that we will continue to support the current functionality. We will not be doing automatic updates on elements, however elements will continue to be added from time to time. Unfortunately we cannot ensure that all elements are made available. I can see that the message has spread widely in the community since Kevin’s statement and I hope that you will assist us in spreading this message as well. Thank you!
