I wanted to create a spoon from an outline in Inkscape using OpenSCAD, this is the first result.


When I printed with MakerWare, it left parts out (left spoon in picture), but ReplicatorG worked fine. As I'll actually be using this for liquids, I prefer the result from ReplicatorG at this time.

I've used free tools as I don't like it when the originals are paid packages, even though its possible to work from a Things .stl it's still better to have the entire toolchain available for everyone.

Photo's are from a print in Yellow PLA, the object is slightly scaled down to be 15cm long.

Makerware 1.1 fixes the missing lines problem (nice job guys!) be sure to clear and then set again 'accelerated printing' when upgrading your firmware.

I appreciate you including the entire toolchain. :) What did you use to convert the SVG into a DXF? Thanks!

Inkscape can do a save as .dxf - the OpenSCAD manual refers to a walkthrough on the rep-rap forums - its a little fiddly, and you have to convert you curve to straight lines by adding points and converting the line type.
