History with LDraw

Kevin started using LDraw in 1998 when the first Mindstorms sets were introduced. He was contacted by a publisher that wanted to publish LEGO books. It was decided that LDraw, L3P and POV-Ray would be used to create the instructions. Kevin wrote a perl script to automate much of the image generation process. Later he converted this to a rudimentary C++ GUI program - today known as LPub. He is currently working on version 4, a complete tool for laying out building instructions.

Kevin was a charter member of both the LDraw.org Standards Committee, and the LDraw.org Steering Committee. Kevin has co-authored four books on the topic of LEGO, three are building instructions books, and the fourth is the first book dedicated to the LDraw family of tools, LEGO Software Power Tools.

Kevin's LEGO Dark age ended in 1998 when the LEGO Mindstorms set was first introduced. Kevin is a computer engineer and does both software and hardware at work. The programming for LPub is very different than the kind he does at work, so it is a nice change of pace.

Kevin is an avid fan of technic and robotics LEGO products. He specializes in making walking and crawling creatures, especially ones made out of pneumatics.
