Just as last year the LDraw Steering Committee was keen to award one of what it called: "The unsung heros of the PT " - in short, people who have worked hard to keep LDraw alive. What does add more value to LDraw and keeps it alive than new parts?
Though Magnus Forsberg has joined the LDraw team only at the end of 2009 and could be considered a youngster among LDraw part authors, he has authored 238 official parts and made changes (improvements) to a further 256 official parts. This workload places him among the top 10 of the part authors. Browsing the activity log a the Parts Tracker you'll hardly find a day where Magnus didn't leave his trace. Patterns, highly sophisticated parts, corrections and shortcuts there seams to be no type of parts Magnus cannot master and the LDraw library wouldn't be what it is today without the contribution and dedication of this year's James Jessiman Memorial Award: Magnus Forsberg!
