Does anybody know an easy way of on LDD, if you've made a big model, getting a list of all the parts you've used?
Is there a way or do I have to sit there and write down every individual brick?

Off the top of my head, I think if you make instructions it kind of breaks it down on each page, but you'll still have to total up all the pages. It's half way to a list of parts.

Actually, I checked, it does give a list of parts when you output HTML instructions. Couldn't see part numbers, but a good start nevertheless.

I tried downloading LDD from the LEGO website. It finished downloading and installing. Then I tried to pull it up but once it was up, nothing would work. I think it might be my computer but I'm not sure. My computer has a Windows Vista operating system that has caused other programs besides LDD to not work. Does anyone else have this problem who has a Windows Vista or is it something else that is causing this to happen?

Do you get a window in the middle of the screen? Click on the 'white page' with a green plus sign to open a new build screen.

Also, how do you get pics from LDD? Do you just do a load of printscreens and cut the images or is there a better way?

If you want to add an LDD creation, take pictures by holding Ctr., then pressing K, in either build mode, or view mode. Then if you want to add that MOC, upload the screenshots from your pictures file. Or if it's for your homepage, add the HTML tag of that screenshot into where you want to add the picture. Hopefully this would of helped you.

To get a parts list, I use the program called "Lego Brick List". It is pretty handy and works by analyzing the LDD file that you upload into the program. Just keep in mind that it works on with the regular "LDD" theme, and it will not work with if it has any parts from the "LDD Extended" theme. And Ctrl + K is the best way to get screenshots.

I didn't see this anywhere else here, but you could go under the file tab and select Export BOM. this will make an excell document that lists each brick(piece and color) and howmany are used. this is the format you'd really want it in to order from PaB, BL, and its way easier then sifting through a picture trying to remember where you were. you can even copy and paste.

Wow, that is pretty cool! I never knew that it had that feature. That will be pretty handy in the future. Thank you for pointing that out!

I found a website that does that. Not only that, but it gives you the bricklink & pickabrick pieces IDs, so that you can order them.

That sounds cool as well! What website is it, if you would not mind sharing?

Here's a good site. Sorry for waiting so long. Just post the file and it'll give you the list. It'll also give you the part ID to stick in either bricklink or pickabrick so that you can select the parts you want and order them! :)

PS sorry for taking so long. They unblocked the site on the school computers. :)

Another LLD question: does anyone know how to get POV Ray running on a Mac? Any advice would be helpful!
