2- Resizing the parts window causes all sorts of problems. It really is best to leave it at it's size, which is a shame. Could there be an option to have larger images as in MLCad?
This is not a SR3D issue, but a parts library (LDraw) one. LEGO uses two numbers to designates things: the design number, a 4 or 5 digits number that identifies the shape of the part, and the item number (7 digits number) that identifies a shape in a given color. Since virtual parts can be used in any color, it's logical to use design number to identify them. Moreover it was for a long time the only accessible identifier, as it is generally engraved in the part in small characters (parts lists in building instructions containing item numbers are relatively recent).3- The Find part box. I thought this would save a long time and was a great idea, but the parts library has different numbers to the Lego catalogue? For instance, the grey wheel in the image has a reference in the manual of: 4562210, but in the LDraw library it is 62821. If they are different am I missing the point of it being there?
OK, so first i tried opening the model in MLCad, this worked OK but parts were missing. Somehow SR 3D will show parts that other programmes wont. I had to do some googling for the missing parts and add them into the library, after that there were no issues.
Saving as a 3DS file worked a treat and bought in all the parts.
