The launch earlier this year of the All-In-One-Installer (AIOI) for LDraw put an end to many years of waiting for an updated version of the LDraw installer. Both here on TBs , in HispaBrick Magazine® and in many other places tutorials and other explanations on how to install an up-to-date version of the most imprtant LDraw related tools have been published, but the AIOI is no doubt the better solution.
The AIOI includes the most important LDraw tools as well as the latest version of the LDraw part library and come with a very easy to use interface. A few months ago I interviewed Willy Tschager, the creator of the AIOI (you can read the interview in HispaBrick Magazine 011) and he explained, among other things that the installation interface is available in several languages.
Currently the available language are:
- German (all three provided by Willy Tschager himself)
- French (by T.C. Tchang)
- Dutch (by Jaco van der Molen - you may want to check out his excelent LPub tutorial)
- Spanish (by me)
The following library files and applications are included in the AIOI. Note that newer version of each application may be available as this installer was created for the release of the latest LDraw parts library update, which happens twice or three times a year.
