Parts Library


LeoCAD uses LDraw's Parts Library

Using a Custom Parts Library

cmd line, env var, preferences

Default Library Path

The default library path is different for each OS:

  • Windows: The same folder where LeoCAD.exe is located
  • Linux: This is set at compile time but it's usually /usr/share/leocad or /usr/local/share/leocad
  • Mac OSX: Inside the application bundle

On Linux you can set the install path prefix at compile time by passing it to qmake:

$ qmake INSTALL_PREFIX=/my/path

This will change the default library path to /my/path/leocad
