Lego models with fusion 360. LDR to fusion 360 script



Recently to learn fusion 360, I used lego models to train with this models

My fusion 360 models


I'm using the tutorials of DK to build my first parts and models.
DK made lot of pieces in .IPT format (inventor) format. IPT Part numbers follow Bricklink convention.


Maybe someone with python or java skill could make a script to translate .ldr instructions into instructions to build
models using a fusion360 shared library ?

A fusion or inventor assembly is series of components with coordinate, rotation, colors like in a LDR models.
A series of script can import nut, screw in .STL format from a online tools dealer for example. 
I think it's possible to parse a .ldr file and translate *.dat from it to .ipt files or fusion360 library component. for *.ldr file description


For example  Ldr file :

colour  x y z a b c d e f g h i piece1025.dat


Fictive fusion script : 

{ Insert piece1025.ipt

coordinate x y z

Transform a b c d e f g h I}

{Insert piece9990.ipt



.......   So with the help of a develloper it could be possible in fusion360 to load and  ldr file, translate the instruction for fusion, insert the good piece at the right place and finally construct the model  


It's just an idea
