PROS

Free to Use: LEGO Digital Designer was available for free, making it accessible to a wide range of LEGO enthusiasts.

User-Friendly Interface: It had an intuitive and user-friendly interface, making it easy for both children and adults to create LEGO designs.

Extensive Parts Library: The software included a vast library of LEGO bricks, elements, and minifigures, allowing users to create intricate and detailed models.

Digital Building Instructions: LDD could generate building instructions for your digital creations, making it easier to recreate your designs in real life.

3D Visualization: Users could view their designs in 3D, which helped them visualize how their creations would look when built with physical LEGO bricks.

Undo/Redo Functionality: The software offered undo and redo options, allowing users to easily correct mistakes or experiment with different design ideas.

CONS

Limited Updates: It was not regularly updated, which meant that it may not have included all the latest LEGO parts or themes. This could be frustrating for users looking for the most up-to-date elements.

Offline Software: It was a downloadable offline software, which meant that users had to install it on their computers and couldn't access their designs from multiple devices or share them easily online.

Learning Curve: While it was user-friendly, creating complex designs could still be challenging for beginners, and there was a learning curve associated with mastering the software's features.

No Collaboration Features: LDD lacked features for collaborative design, making it difficult for multiple users to work on the same project simultaneously.

Discontinued Support: As mentioned earlier, the LEGO Group has discontinued support and updates for LDD, which means that users may encounter compatibility issues with newer operating systems or encounter bugs that will not be fixed.
