Installing LeoCad

LeoCad is a software to make 3D tente models. It works similar to MLCad and it's a good idea install both programs. Leocad runs under Windows or GNU/Linux.

What need us?


  • Run LeoCAD.
  • To load the catalogue of pieces miscat.lcf select -> Pieces Library Manager -> Open.
  • Select File -> Save.
  • Close and open LeoCAD and changes will be effective.
  • If you see 3D tente categories but you can select for seeing pieces do this: copy pieces.bin and pieces.idx from leocad subfolder in LDrawTente_Ultima.zip file to folder where we've just install LeoCAD (this erase lego set of pieces, so you might copy in another place to keep them previously)
