Step 1: Download and Install the LDraw Library

  • Go to the download page and download the latest
  • Unzip in the directory of your choice - we recommend ~/ldraw/ if you don't want to worry about file permissions.

Step 2: Install LDCad

  • Go to 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 2b: Other editors

  • The Konstruktor editor is also under development and may offer an alternative to LDCad.

Step 3: Dive in

Learning how to use your new editor or understanding the LDraw file format may be a challenge, but with a little practice you will get the hang of it. Check out the tutorials on the wiki or on the main website.
