Copied over from the Space Group (http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/17), here are my top ten reasons to build in digital Lego:

10) Its easy to reproduce instructions to share or help build copies of a single model

9) Use it as a preliminary design phase for large or complicated models

8) Generate a parts list for ordering Lego

7) With good rendering, you can produce images superior to photos unless you also have an expensive camera with a macro lens.

6) You can take apart another person's creation without getting yelled at.

5) Infinite pieces!

4) Photoshop works better on digital Lego

3) No need for a brick separator (or teeth)

2) Its easier to carry a laptop than tens of thousands of pieces.

And the number one reason to use digital Lego....

1) Digital Lego seldom hurts when you step on it.

All of these are true especially the brick separation lol.

As anyone ever used that big pink quarter round? I went searching for it on the Lego site but was never able to find it in any sets.

it is sometimes used as a base in the ldd galleries on Lego.com, but not often. I've not seen it used in any official set, possibly the Belville ones (maybe).

To be honest I can't think of a reason I'd ever use it as there aren't that many other pink bricks in ldd to colour coordinate a model with. at a pinch you could use it as part of a red and white design, but it would still stand out too much.

edit, it is featured in Belville set 7586 as the floor for the second level of the sunshine home.

I'm using it to build a water tower for Robertsville. I should imagine a huge PINK water tower would be quite a tourist attraction, much like the Hunt's catsup bottle in Collinsville, Illinois. I'll be uploading it this afternoon or evening sometime.

Hi there...
I'm using SR 3D Builder, but there are some actions I can't achieve. Hence I ask, is there any software, which allows to bend hoses/ribbed hoses???

I've been checking all over the place and I can't find any. That doesn't mean it's not out there, though. But, I think it would have to be some kind of supplemental software from the creator company. A tech friend of mine tells me that such an additional program would be as complex as the original program, since it would basically be a total upgrade.

I'm somewhat good at using LDD. I noticed that LDRAW has a MUCH better parts selection, so I tried it. It is the most overcomplicated program ever. (slight exageration)

Sorry for the massive dump of creations, but I had forgotten to add as I go since I joined the group.

Oh, the Humanity! I was working on my 00 gundam last night, and was about 75% done the main gundam itself (not including the armaments or alternate forms or upgrades), and then this morning, when I went to open the file, it said "unable to open file". No matter what I do, I keep getting this message. Its so unfair! I don't know if I can even re-create the steps I took to make that model again! Has anyone else had this problem? More to the point, has anyone else managed to recover their work after experiencing this problem? Any advice would be appreciated. I've already tried re-installing the program, and renaming the file, but neither worked.

Anyone having problems running LDD the past couple days? Run it in offline mode. Lego is having a problem updating it right now.
