All non Descent related stuff. Keep it civilized, this is not an NHB area.

Please feel free to share the models publicly. I wanted to post them on the Lego website anyway but for some reason I can't upload them.

Download the instructions here: Descent LEGO Models.

You need the LEGO Digital Designer to open them. It will give you a license file warning which you can ignore.

Pretty cool!

Neat little program and models.

I didn't look to much into it (lazy), but does the program tell what parts are used from what lego sets they come from?

From what I see, they do tell you what part it is....

LDD can generate a list of pieces and detailed building instructions. It does not tell you which sets the pieces can be found in. I think that probably wouldn't be very useful anyway since the pieces for each of these models might be scattered over 10 or 100 different sets. As Karx has said though, you can buy individual pieces from Lego.com but the selection isn't as big as it could be.

You don't need Lego sets for certain parts. You can purchase as good as all of them in online stores specialized on Lego bricks. What LDD can do is create animated building instructions from Lego models in LDD format, showing the building process step by step, similar to the printed instructions.

If I remember correctly, you can push your finished LDD design via LDD for purchase in a specific ordering system, where it's price is evaluated. But Diedel's way is the certain one.

Lego has discontinued the program where you can buy the models you design in LDD. They still sell individual pieces but their selection is limited.
I just found http://www.squidoo.com/easy-ways-to-buy-individual-lego-pieces. it seems to have a bunch of good information about buying single legos.
