Ldglite: Create, edit, and view LDRAW models. What is ldglite? Ldglite is a program that lets you view and edit Lego brick models stored in LDRAW format.
Ldglite is a program that lets you view and edit Lego brick models stored in LDRAW format. It was created by connecting the LDLite DAT file parser to an OpenGL rendering engine, making it portable to other operating systems. Along the way the L3 parser from L3P and a few nifty features from other DAT file viewers such as L3Lab were added or emulated. Most recently, an LEdit emulation mode was added. This gives you the ability to create and edit models in ldglite in addition to the viewing capabilities. The LEdit mode has several extensions including a hose maker that can also be used to generate minifig chains. Another new feature is the ability to function as a cheesy scene modeler for l3p and POV. Several internet sites use ldglite as a scripted offscreen renderer, generating many pictures of ldraw parts for inventory lists and such. Possibly the most important feature of ldglite is that all of the source code is available.
