Create parametric dovetail.

Your printing area is too small ?

No problem, cut your piece and reassemble it !

Updated version : https://github.com/hugokernel/OpenSCAD_Dovetail


Example :

dim = [20, 60, 5];
clear = 0.3;


  • [x, y, z]
    • x : Teeth count
    • y : Teeth height
    • z : Teeth Clearance
      teeth = [3, 4, clear];

intersection() {
cube(size = dim, center = true);
cutter([0, -10, 0], dim, teeth, true);

All Apps

No results.

I'm just learning openscad. I've been playing with your fantastic library and trying to figure out how to break the slab into only two units rather than three. Can you give me some pointers?

Look at the example on this page: cut it into 2 parts
