I've got some models .lxf and I'd like to order the parts. Is there a way to extract that information from LDD on OS X? All the solutions I have seen so far go via a Windows application.
Bricklink Wanted List Uploader
It is very simple to upload a parts list to Bricklink. You can directly upload your LDD file through the Bricklink wanted page uploader.
The wanted list uploader supports the these four file types:
- LEGO Digital Designer (.lxf)
- BrickStock/Brickstore (.bsx)
- LDraw (.ldr)
- Stud.io (.io)
If the Bricklink uploader doesn't work, you can also use LDD also lets you export a list of parts from within the application.
In LEGO Digital Designer, open your model. Go to File > Export BOM (Ctrl + B) to save a spreadsheet/zip copy of all the parts used in your model.
The file will include information include part name, ID, colour, quantity as well as a thumbnail photo of each piece.
