Hi! Im new here. Nice to meet you all!. I think this software is awesome, as you can use it in a browser, (making work time better hehe) I was wondering. Is there a way to export your model to make an instruction pdf with all parts and steps in building model like LDD.?

I would like to make a model for my girlfriend and print instructions as i create a box and order parts from pick a brick hehe.

Greating to all!

Hello and welcome

Currently, you can only get the part list of a model (including references for bricklink).
I am planning to design an instruction builder included in mecabricks however, it is a big project that will probably only happen in the second half of 2016.

What you can do, is to take screenshots while you are building your model (shortcut: C) and assemble the images using a software like Word/Pages for example to create your file and export it to pdf.

Hi! I'm guessing, you're still working on the instructions, but I am wondering how much progress you have made given that your revious post was a long time ago. BTW, I LOVE this.

I’ve used Blueprint (if you have your model in LDD as well). Not fancy but works ok. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/108346-software-blueprint-a-building-instruction-generator-for-ldd/

I'm new to this today. How do you build things. I can't quite figure it out.

KikiCollier, go to https://www.mecabricks.com/en/forum/topic/65 and it has pretty detailed instructions on how to get started.

How do you use the instructions tab in the upper right hand corner? Can you make your own instructions from this?

@CivilizedSabers Scrubs has not yet completed this feature. It will hopefully be active eventually.

Hi, I clicked on Workshop but I am getting a black screen. How can I fix this? I reloaded and it's still like this.

@praiselordbean Please use a thread related to your issue or create a new one. If you have a blank screen, it is likely that your browser is outdated. Make sure that you have the latest version.

So far no. If Scrubs reaches a certain level of donations on the MB Patreon page however, he will get to work on this feature and finish it (the page says at least).
