@jsan31: Thanks for this tutorial!
@Jetro: Good question... I had a look, and it turned out that only 3 unofficial files (primitives) were needed. I slightly modified a bunch of files, and the parts archive on my website no longer needs any unofficial file!
With the imminent release of SnapCAD, here is a quick word about the set of unofficial LDraw parts that will be incorporated into SnapCAD.
when creating the library of parts for SnapCAD, we realized that we could improve the ease of use by changing the origin of many parts (most parts connects directly while using SnapCAD coarse grid).
The drawback of this change is that SnapCAD library is not fully compatible with this preliminary library: when opened in SnapCAD, models built with the old library will show slightly offset parts in many places and will need to be (at least partially) rebuilt. I am sorry for that (I should have had more insight initially!).
This library will not be updated with new parts, but of course SnapCAD library will get them.
So... use the old library only for small projects till SnapCAD is available!
