Rostock plywood SCAD dxf by Nudel_P Sep 14, 2012

Description

I did some simple changes to the code so you can now choose to export a 2D dxf file directly from the SCAD source. Also know as the proper method. ;)

Happy to help! :) The DXF from OpenSCAD does look a bit sketchy though, and it doesn't render properly on thingiverse, but I hope it's possible to use it.

It's really quite simple, if you know the basics. You can see in the code what I did was just to change cube() for square(), cylinder() for circle() and do a linear_extrude() of the 2D shape. It's still a bit of a hack though.

Awesome! Glad my hacky method provided the encouragement for someone to do this the right way. :)

The provided SCAD crashes OpenSCAD 2011.12.30 upon rendering for both "generate_dxf = true" and "generate_dxf = false". However, OpenSCAD 2012.8.22 renders it fine. Just though I'd point it out in case others have problems. :)
