Saturday, January 1, 2011 2010-03 Parts Update brings us a third parts update to close 2010, adding another series of parts to the official LDraw Parts Library. Below the official announcement [1]:

The 2010-03 LDraw parts update has been now been released.

This update includes 794 files in the core library, including 456 new parts, and
many more files updated with improvements for Back Face Culling support. A
further 3 parts have been redeveloped by authors who have affirmed the
Contributor Agreement, replacing files that were not redistributable.

Thanks are due to all the authors and reviewers who contributed to this release.

You can preview the new parts in 2010-03 and download the update by going to

The 116 certified files currently on the LDraw Parts Tracker were held back from
this update in keeping our normal practice of not releasing new primitives or
subparts until they are needed for an official part file. There are another 351
files waiting for admin review, many of which I hope can be included in the next

Although not quite as large as 2010-02, this update represents a further
reduction of the backlog on the Parts Tracker
( However, we continue to be dependent
upon a small number of authors and reviewers, which limits the frequency with
which updates can be issued.

In order to take full advantage of this update you may also want to install the latest version of MLCad.ini, (available at ... but which is not available yet ... (It's the holiday season and things are bound to take a little longer - it should be available soon though).

In the meantime you may want to try out J.C. Tchang's unofficial MLCad.ini [2], including unofficial parts as of 2010-12-31. It is available here [3].

Great, I wasn't aware of updated pieces. Do you happen to know if there are any LDRAW files of complete technic sets?

Hi, just google for Technicopedia.
There you will find LDRAW models, for many LEGO Technic sets.
