LDraw.org 2017-01 Parts Update Now Available

Willy over at LDraw has let us know that they have updated their parts list and is now available to download. If you’re not familiar with LDraw, it is a good software to use for MOC design and planning and is a little different than LEGO Digital Designer. It’s a bit more advanced than LDD and it also has a lot more older parts to choose from than with LDD. You can also design your own building instructions if you desire.

The 2017-01 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 717 new files to the core library, including 509 new parts and 33 new primitives. This update also includes updated versions of the colour configuration files (LDConfig.ldr and LDCfgalt.ldr) thanks to Willy Tschager and Magnus Forsberg.

Thanks are of course due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release, including several first-time authors. The reviewers also play an important role in keeping files moving through the Parts Tracker and deserve just as much credit.

You can preview the new parts in 2017-01 here, download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates… to install the update.
