Came out of my LEGO Dark Ages in 2016.  Trying to catch up with the rest of the world when it comes to designing a MOC.  Currently downloading small MOCs and dissecting the Instructions.

To speed up my learning process, I make a lot of what I call "Rat Rods" - all the correct shapes (or reasonable substitutes) and don't worry about the colors for now.

I attend a weekly LEGO gathering in my community.  Usually working with Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, Grandparents, or Great Grandparents.  Therefore, when I make Instructions in LDD my #1 priority is to keep the build flat on the table for as long as possible so they don't have to fight that "Gravity Guy".  I also like to have the 3D view capability that LDD allows.

Takes a lot of time to build LDD instructions, but to me it's worth it because of all the extra learning I do when I try to make the file.

I am "VERY" grateful for all the great MOCs created by the designers I am following.

    Very interesting article!  Thank you for the effort needed to compile all this.

    Click on the Inventory tab above.

    Click on the export parts box - a menu should drop down.

    Click on the HTML Table option.  A list with pictures will show up - be sure to scroll down the entire list to make sure all the pictures are there.  Select all (Ctrl+A).  Copy.  Open Microsoft Word and paste.  Be patient if it is a really large number of parts - if a popup shows up and asks if you want to use the Normal style, click yes.

    Save the file and print it.

    Other than the Corvette (42093) are any other vehicles built in the same scale?  It would be nice to have the trailer full of cars.
