LDraw Parts: Colour Definitions

Quick help

These two colour files should be placed in your main LDraw directory

They define the various LDraw colours in a way that matches the reality of LEGO bricks. These colours are maintained by the LDraw Colourmaster Scott Wardlaw.

Colour Definition Language Extension

Detailed information about scope, syntax and the definitions of parameters of the LDConfig.ldr file can be found in the LDraw.org Standards.

Files

The colour definitions for LDraw are contained in LDConfig.ldr. The file can be downloaded from:

The main characteristics are:

  • Uses LEGO RGB values
  • Uses LEGO numbering where possible
  • Uses Bricklink names
  • Contains all colours currently listed at Bricklink
  • Lists the matched LEGO name
  • Colours are grouped in categories

There is also an alternative file with different edgeline colours available: LDCfgalt.ldr. It is primarily intended for rendering and those who prefer their CAD models to look more realistic in an editor such as MLCad. To use it in MLCad (version 3.3 or higher), you need to rename LDConfig.ldr to something like LDConfig_BlackEdges.ldr and rename LDConfig_Alt.ldr to LDConfig.ldr. MLCad will load the alternative version at the next start-up. Please don't use LDConfig_Alt.ldrto make instructions. The file can be downloaded from:

Both files should be placed in the main LDraw directory. The colours defined can be found in the Colour Chart below.
