We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is an OpenSCAD script that facilitates making objects that consist of connected line segments. I wrote it because I wanted to print out a model of tesseract sculpture I had made in a welding class. I had a list of coordinates and wanted to be able to easily turn that into an STL.
The low level routine "DrawStick" will generate a single segment between two coordinates. It is used by "ConnectedSticks" which takes a list of coordinates and generates a sequence of sticks connected together. These routines could be useful as is, or more likely, incorporated into other programs to do more interesting things.

So what's this mean?
We're sure ekpuz would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
