LDraw All-In-One
Build your own virtual Lego models

LDraw is a set of free tools for creating 3D virtual Lego models.

You're able to build new models, record models you've physically built, view the creations of others, render photorealistic images of your models, even make animations.

The program comes with over 7400 Lego parts and at least 175 pre-built models to give you an immediate idea what's possible. Launch the viewer (LDView) and browse folders including "Lord of the Rings", "Pirates", "Simpsons", "Star Wars" and more.

Opening the same file into LDCad enables viewing and editing of the model. This is a powerful tool with CAD-like features and functionality, so you should expect a steep learning curve, but just left and right-clicking objects and browsing the menus will let you see what's possible.

There are plenty of other tools included - editors, viewers, converters, parts libraries and more - but again, don't expect to figure them out in a hurry. LDraw has been developed over 20 years by multiple people, and there's now a lot to explore.

What's new in 2018-02 (see changelog for more)?

- Update to LDraw Parts Libary 2018-02
- Update to LPub3D 2.3.6
- Update to MPDCenter 2.5.0.0
- Update to LDFind 1.3.5.4

Verdict:

LDraw is a hugely powerful set of Lego modelling tools. You'll need some experience with CAD or modelling programs to get the most from it, but Lego fans can also just spend half an hour browsing the sample models.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
