What is the Parts Tracker?
Right now, the Parts Tracker is the place to send your part files if you want them added to the LDraw Parts Library.
Eventually, it will also be the place to request certain parts be made for LDraw.
When will the parts be released?
Long term, we're aiming towards having quarterly releases subject to there being sufficient certified parts.
How do I request a part?
A request feature is not yet implemented. For now, you can request a part by going to the LDraw Forum and asking.
A lot of the parts in the active list are already official! What's up with that?
Parts are being updated all the time. When we get a fix, it goes into the Parts Tracker for approval, just like new parts.
How do I author a new LDraw part?
See the Parts Authoring FAQ for guidance on authoring parts.
How do I become authorized as an author on the Parts Tracker?
How do I submit my parts?
How can I submit an updated version of an official part?
Email the updated part to the Parts Library Admin. We will put it in the Parts Tracker. Once an updated version of an official part is on the Parts Tracker, subsequent resubmissions do not require admin intervention.

You may get an error submitting your part. There are three possible reasons:
How do I delete a part from the Tracker?
Send an email to the Parts Library Admin, asking us to remove the file.

What should I look for when I review a part?

How do I post a review?
