Coverer, LDraw sheet generator
creates a sheet of triangle and quads between
two sets of lines.
Dat2QP is a tool
written in C++ by J.C. Tchang. It allows to
convert a LDraw file into a Quad2Dat
describing the use of Lee Gaiteri's Edger,
an optional lines calculator (tutorial written
by J.C. Tchang)
Isecalc, Intersection Line
computes the intersection line of two sets of
triangles or quads.
allows to cut a LDraw file along the intersection
Linetrim, Line trimmer
Linetrim cuts lines
going through triangles or quads (Obsolete tool,
replaced by Intersector).
Richard Baxter's OLC, Optional
OLC is a program
written by Richard Baxter, which adds optional
lines (LDraw line type 5) between polygons of
allows to create a surface by extrusion of a
shape along a path.
PlanarCheck, LDraw Quad Coplanarity
that all quads of a part file are planar enough
to fulfill LDraw.org Parts Tracker requirements.
allows to stamp a flat pattern over a 3D former
optimizes a LDraw file by converting adjacent
triangles into quads and transforms rhombuses
bordered with lines into rect primitives
creates a sheet of triangle and quads from a
set of lines, by extrusion in LDraw Y direction.

tutorial describes how I created the finger
part, using several tools.
