Step 1: Download and Install the LDraw Library
- Go to the LDraw.org download page and download the latest
complete.zipin the directory of your choice - we recommend
~/ldraw/if you don't want to worry about file permissions.
Step 2: Install LDCad
- Go to http://www.melkert.net/LDCad and download the Linux version of LDCad
- Unzip the package into the directory of your choice
- Run LDCad
- When asked for the location of the LDraw Library, use the directory where you unzipped
Step 3: Dive in
