Parts and Helper
To show how parts fit into each other, building instruction often make
usage of exploded views along with arrows or dotted lines called "helpers".
Here you'll find the helpers as well as high quality 3D-numbers
to label your instruction steps directly in a LDraw scene without the usage of photo
editing or desktop publishing programs.
Many people build models virtually but just a handful know how to create
a part or what’s needed before a part can show up in the preview
window of your preferred building editor. Here’s a crash course in LDraw
part authoring and learn that you don’t have to be a math guru or hack
your way through a jungle of ones or zeros.
