There are no set limits for the quantity of bricks you can place in Lego Digital Designer. The limit on the amount of pieces you can use is entirely dependent on the specifications of your computer. You may find performance will be affected not only by the quantity of bricks placed, but the complexity of the geometry used. Metallic and transparent coloured ...

The top piece shown here is the LEGO Ball Joint with Ball Socket (74261 / 98613) connected to a LEGO Brick 2 x 2 with Ball Socket and Axlehole (Wide Socket) (92013).

18677 IS in latest LDD update (mid march 2016), issued after announcement of LDD end of support... Just make sure to be in LDD Extended mode to find it, along with other plates.

I slid the Technic frame over an axle instead of a pin to see how far it would go. As shown in the picture below, it appears as if the part is too big to fit all the way because the rim (shown level with the red line) is too thick. LDD runs a basic collision detection to ensure that no parts overlap. In real life, certain combinations of parts are ...

I think this has to do with the fact that part 18677 Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Pin Hole on Bottom is a new part (has only been in production since 2015) whereas its counterpart 11458 Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Pin Hole on Top has been around since 2013. Couple that with the fact that LEGO recently announced the end of maintenance for LEGO Digital Designer (...

I agree with SMS von der Tann... I'd upgrade LDD to 4.3.9 and the turn plates 2x2 ARE NOT in any category anymore (I seek it everywhere more than twice). My solution was to save a 2x2 turn plate, from another LDD model I made before upgrading, to the templates and then re-use it when I need. Regards

You'll find them in the hinge parts category (next to minifig one) under the name "Turn Plate 2x2", number 3679 / 3680. Brickset uses LEGO names for parts, this can help finding them in LDD

Copy and paste works, but some parts from extended may not exist in non-extended, so those will be missing.

If you have a LEGO Digital Designer file (.lxf) and want to convert that to an LDraw compatible format so that LDraw-based tools such as Bricksmith can read it, your best bet is to use LDD's Export functionality to save your file as a .ldr file. The full details on this procedure are located here. This post covers both LDraw to LDD as well as LDD to LDraw ...

Here's a great program that takes an LDD file and makes it an .xml file: http://www.nolberger.se/lego/wantedbricks/ From there you can copy the text and paste it into your bricklink wanted list.

I have found the problem: My "AppData/Roaming/LEGO Company"-folder somehow seemed to be a symbolic link to a non-existent folder. It did not help reinstalling the application, but I fixed the link issue -- which in the end fixed the whole not-rendering-problem. However, thank you very much for your answers

I recommend you uninstall the current LDD software completely. You can download a 30 day trial of Revo Uninstaller to remove LDD using the 'Forced Uninstall' feature. It's good for removing partially installed software, but it isn't necessary, you can use the Uninstaller built into your operating system to do a standard uninstallation. Download the most ...
