Parametric twisted star box
by rhmorrison, published
I liked the twisted star box (which is also parametric) but it requires not only Art of Illusion but also a special under development and undocumented MetaCADEvaluator plugin that is part of the development version of CSGEvaluator for Art of Illusion:
and since I wanted a box with very specific dimensions I decided to make a version using my tool of choice - OpenSCAD!
File size < 3k instead of 12k! :-)
There are three primary variables:
the inner radius (i.e. the size of the hole),
the wall Thickness (used for top, bottom and lip) and
- the star box Height (the height of the box w/o the lip/top).
The remaining variables:
sbLip, tFactor and tGap can be changed if desired.
They are documented in the SCAD design file.
