LDInspector


LDInspector is a Java-program to inspect LDraw models and parts, mainly the ones available at the Official Model Repository or before you submit your model there.
It is discussed in a thread at the LDraw Forum. Some more information you can find at the LDraw Wiki including some howtos and use-case-explanation.

You will need Java (version >=11) and JavaFX (version >= 11) to run, it is reported to successfully start on Linux, Windows and MacOS.
You may try the latest unstable build snapshot (version) or the latest official version 0.3 of 2020-05-06.
If you don't like fighting against the Java module system invented in version 9, you may also give the installer a try (at the moment, Linux and Windows are supported).
This will download Java and JavaFX to the directory where the installer is started, and it will also create a start-script taking care of paths, modules and so on.

Special thanks to Philippe, Willy, Roland, Magnus and Johann for so many helpful suggestions and patient explanation of OMR rules and LDraw format.
If you like LDraw, mpd-files and the Official Model Repository, please also consider looking at MPDCenter written by Michael Heidemann, which discussed here.

The preferred way to send me messages is through the corresponding thread, but you may also write a mail to ldraw at fam-frenz dot de.
