I don't have an idea what you mean with c1, c2, etc but Mecabricks currently doesn't add any custom parts. Only parts that have a real id and can be lookup using http://brickset.com/parts are added.

This conversation on eurobricks is what I was talking about http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=79778
there are a number of custom bricks, which seem to be used in mecabricks.

The parts do exist in Mecabricks, but are hidden for public. I don't think that there are any plans to add (more) custom parts among the real LEGO Parts. But yeah, in the experimenting phase more than 3 years ago, everything could happen. Mecabricks has grown alot since then.

What are your plans with Mecabricks? If you want, you can always private message Scrubs about your ideas, and maybe they get implemented! smiling face with open mouth

cool. I think Mecabricks could be the leading digital lego designer program pretty soon. The balance of user friendly interface and powerful tools are great. and the openness to ideas will, I'm sure, lead to a very prominent program/user base. I think that an application version of Mecabricks that could be run offline would be a great (and helpful) feature; as would a piece authoring program or collection of tutorials. personally, I have wanted to be able to design my own pieces for a while now, and would be super exited if Mecabricks could become a place to share, if not design, pieces and decorations. Anyway, this program looks like it has huge potential, and is well on it's way to becoming the most powerful lego building software available!

Thank you for your kind works!

There was a time when Mecabricks was smaller and I had time to experiment features. I think that most custom bricks were design by Nachapon. There are only a handful of them. Nowadays, those pieces are still in the library but hidden. I kept them for backward compatibility with the models that have been built at that time.

Regarding a desktop app, it is not really in my plans. The whole idea behind Mecabricks is to provide the same version of the workshop with the same part library to everybody. No need to download anything. What you have is always the latest version. Besides, I don't know anything about code for stand alone apps winking face

You can check this video. Remember that custom decorations are currently not accessible outside of the part manager.
