Yesterday I tried LDD for the first time (to take advantage of precise element positioning), and I find its interface truly awful! Maybe I'm too used to MLCad. I don't think I'll be on time to properly give a try at the Challenge. :(

To avoid confusion, you should provide Portuguese time zone in the *from" parameter (p1) of the link:

Great site! I visit it nearly daily!

No, the idea is precisely the opposite and give a more central reference. The reader doesn't need to know where some of the bloggers are from.
The the time reference given, was set on Central European time (CET) and this should be in the "from". Then you set your location and get the local time wherever you are. Portugal or any other place.

Why is the interface so truly awful? I sort off like it. It's easy to place parts and turn them. Hinge align tool works great too. I don't I could make this model in MLCad.

How many entries are there? Are there more people that used LDD, besides me?

Martin said...

@ Conchas:
ok, understand now, 16.00 *CET* was the target time.
Anyhow, you should omit the second parameter ("p2=133") since this means convert to "Portugal - Lisbon" time.


TechnicBRICKs said...


Now that's a good hint!
Despite I don't see any difference without the second parameter. However that's probably because the browser is assuming my actual location, which is the same. Other's will probably see their own country in "convert to".

Will change the code, btw.

There were 10 valid entries, plus one after the time has expired.
Most of the entries were done in LDraw. I'll publish more detailed figures and data soon.
