sharing LDD files
Join to comment
I do most of my MOCing in LDD (sadly, I wish I had the resources to make them real) and I'd like to share the LXF files with other members of MOCpages, what is the best method for doing this?

Do you mean by building instructions?

If you do, these are the directions:

1. Make an LDD Model
2. Save it.
3. Go to MOCPages, click add a creation. Then at the bottom you'll see "building instructions".
4. Click the browse button, go to the libraries (if you have them) then click "documents".
5. You'll see a folder in documents that's called LEGO Creations.
6. Click it, then click Models
7. Choose your model or creation out of the file.
8. Click it twice.
9. You're done!

thanks for that - it's actually the Lego Digital Designer file that I want to share with people so they can "play" with the model I've created and sadly you just get pages and pages of code if you try and attach these.

when you create a new moc there is the option to add the LDD file, look for the section marked "Building instructions" you can browse on your own computer using the browse option and upload the ldd file to be included with your moc.

you can only upload one per moc, so if you want to share multiple ldd files, you will need to either create multiple mocs, or, share them via a different website.

brickshelf allows for multiple ldd files to be included in the same folder.

thanks, I've now tried this with my most recent MOC and it's there, but defaults to a .txt suffix (so it reads <file name>.lxf.txt) but seems to download OK. I don't suppose there's a way to address this so I'll just have to put instructions on the page
