Somewhat out of date last time I looked ;)

The .ldr or .dat files are text based, do you can open them and check the comment lines at the top. I've not checked but I'd assume that all the ones included in LeoCAD were the ones covered by the CC BY license.

Inverted my answer - I'd answered "Is it ethical" - but the question's "unethical".

comment Is it unethical to distribute 3D models of Lego bricks?
@abatishchev Not really - there are legal agreements covering the parts, so they should be followed - as some of these allow for derivative and commercial use, there are no real ethics involved. The LDraw Steering Committee ask for donations of time or money if you are profiting from the library, which is where "ethics" might come in to play. Personally if someone wants to convert all these files into a more "native" format for use in traditional modelling apps I'm sure people would be very grateful.

comment How can I make a LEGO heroica scale fountain of youth using bricks from Fortaan or Waldurk?
Is that all the LEGO you've got, or are there other pieces to work with?

comment NXT motor power accuracy
I guess so - I can't say I've tried, but yes, there's possibly some implicit conversions going on.

comment Is it possible to build Lego bricks with a makerbot replicator 3D print?
Good question - I really doubt that the precision of the printers are anywhere close to actual LEGO bricks.
