Summary:PNG writer and updated POV-Ray writer included in 0.26
Project:ldraw Python Package

Version 0.26 includes a PNG writer and an updated POV-Ray writer.

The PNG writer is currently a work-in-progress that can be used to preview scenes. At the moment, it is designed to render scenes as accurately as possible rather than as quickly as possible. Certain LDraw primitives, such as lines, are not currently rendered, though it is possible to draw outlines around each polygon to show the structure of a scene. This writer requires the Numeric and PyQt4 packages.

The POV-Ray writer has been updated to generate pre-defined objects for each type of piece used in a scene and a series of references to them. This results in smaller file sizes than the previous version, which would write every object as a set of primitives.This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map
