Konstruktor was originally started as a KDE project but not anymore. Recently I was peeling off KDE dependency from the codebase. I wanted Konstruktor to support Windows and Mac OS X together. I really like KDE and its API but it becomes an obstacle when it comes to Windows and Mac OS X. I didn't want to bring those huge KDE frameworks along with Konstruktor. It looked like a tail wagging the dog.
I just finished the lousy task. Changed every K classes to Q, rewrote the main window code, replaced from i18n() to tr(). Now it is a pure Qt app and this is the result:
I'd call it an epic triumph. With minimal effort on porting everything worked like a magic. I hope this to be released in April.
P.S. No KDE in Konstruktor anymore. Should I rename it Qonstruktor? :)

I've been very busy doing my full time job for last two years. Along with my job, I was slowly working on my project called KLDraw (and then Klotz) in my spare time.
Many things have changed. I renamed it Konstruktor (yeah, I know that was an awkward decision), refined UI and rewrote the rendering code from the scratch. Now I believe this one is almost feature complete and comparable to major LDraw-based CADs out there (MLCad, LeoCAD, Bricksmith, ...)
Konstruktor 0.9.0-beta1 is just released. The source code is here: http://konstruktor.influx.kr/konstruktor-0.9-beta1.tar.bz2 Still this is in beta stage, please report bugs as you find them.
This project is now hosted at GitHub. Feel free to participate and fork if you want to. I have project homepage (http://konstruktor.influx.kr) but nothing's there so far. I still suck at designing website, please mail me if you want to help.

Therefore, icon wanted. There's no any complicated demands. Just it looks like an ordinary Oxygen icon and that's all okay.
Mail me if you made one (mastermind at planetmono dot org). If your submission is accepted, your name will be enlisted in the about dialog.

Since I have not so enough time, I'm working on KDE projects in my spare time. Along with Galmuri, KLDraw KDE4 port is well ongoing. Precisely, it's a rewrite rather than port. (The old code was an awful mess!) Thanks to Qt4's MainWindow and MVC, the code is much cleaner and powerful now. While most of features are ported to the new version, now I'm adding some missing features which didn't exist in the last release.
This is what I resurrected yesterday: POV-Ray renderer. Please note that this is not working with POV-Ray 3.7 beta because they dropped the progressive stdout output feature at this moment.
The latest code is not in svn yet. I'll have it uploaded on svn after some annoying bugs get fixed.

in order to use this, expression must be provided with 'py=' prefix.
though krunner's autocompletion seems a bit unresponsive, i hope it would get better soon.
the code is here.
and yeah, here is the obligatory screenshot:
