I am currently working on building Slackware Linux packages for some programs to build and visualize Lego constructions. As packages get ready, I'll put them here for everyone to download.

LeoCAD 0.75

LeoCAD is a wonderful CAD program to create your Lego constructions in Linux or Windows. After exchanging some messages with the author, I managed to build packages for both 32 and 64-bits Slackware:

You will need the LeoCAD pieces library package as well.

LDView 4.1

LDView is a tool to visualize LDraw files in 3D. See some pictures of the program running on Slackware:

LDView 4.1 uses QT4 so it only works on Slackware 13.0 or newer (and maybe on 12.2 with KDE4) and has been tested on both the 32 & 64-bits versions. You will also need the TinyXML package and the LDraw_data package.

ldglite 1.2.4

ldglite is both an LDraw viewer and editor. It's main advantage is the ability to create pictures from LDraw files from the command line. Here is an example of a picture of my elevator, created with ldglite:

ldglite has no dependencies, it just needs the LDraw_data package. It has been tested on both the 32 & 64-bits versions of Slackware 13.1.

POV-Ray 3.6.1

Not strictly a Lego package, I use it for creating high-quality 3D images from my LDraw files. See some examples of images created with POV-Ray from Lego pieces:

These images were created from pov-files generated by l3p with the 'lgeo' pieces library. I'll put these on this page soon...

POV-Ray has no dependencies and has been tested on both the 32 & 64-bits versions of Slackware 13.1.
