OpenSCAD version of the bolt maze


Modify the maze array in the .scad and generate a new bolt maze on the fly!

This version includes a captive nut and does not require exterior support from the slicer, unlike the first version which did. Also, the first version had a SCAD problem that made the bolt surface very rough (almost jittery) after slicing... this version has a fix to make the surface smooth.

For fun, here's a link to Wikipedia's random maze generator page, with Python example (see file random_maze.py)

I've added the two required MCAD files for your convenience.

I get an "Ignoring unknown module 'spin'." warning...  Do I have the wrong version of OpenSCAD?

You need the MCAD modules... in a sub-folder (the scad file here has them in OpenSCAD_modules under the parent folder)


The spin module is in utilities.scad
