Breed Customizable 4x Leash Hook by areeve20 Jan 31, 2013

Description

I wanted to make a hook to mount near the door to hang the dog leash, my keys, and a "paw towel" on. I have a cute little pug named doughnut and I thought it would be cool to put a little pug silhouette on it, but then I thought that this might be a good opportunity to utilize the Makerbot "customizer" app for people with other breeds.
I am very new to OpenSCAD, the only other thing I have made is a customizable little tube. However, I am always eager to learn so I started doing some research. I was looking for a way to draw the silhouettes when I stumbled upon dnewman's "Inkscape to OpenSCAD converter v2". thingiverse.com/thing:25036
Perfect! I simply vectored my silhouettes in illustrator and used dnewman's Inkscape extension to convert them to .scad.
I am sure there is a better way to make the "options" then the way I did it (feel free to post in the comments).

Current Available Breeds: beagle, boston, boxer, bull, chihuahua, dachshund, doberman, german, golden, greyhound, lab, pomeranian, poodle, pug, rottweiler, schnauzer, springer, yorkshire.

PS - There are a lot of breeds out there so if you would like me to add one, just let me know. Otherwise, I will be slowly adding more at random.

No corgi ? :(

So I am used to dealing with 'code duplication' and preventing it :-).
For the OpenSCAD things, I just started using OpenSCAD recently. But I have learned a lot from reading this website:

For the preview code for Customizer, it is in the docs:

I see in your openscad-script that you repeat the code for the Hooks for every breed.
Code that is the same every time can be put in a 'module'.
That way you can save some diskspace ;-)

like so: //sample code

module makeCube(){
translate([5,6,7])
rotate(45,[1,0,0])
cube([1,2,3]);
}

//Make a cube
makeCube();

//Make another cube, saves a couple lines of code
makeCube();

I'll check if I make your code a bit shorter (and more simple / easy to read) that way

Done!
Add the module 'hooks' somewhere at the end of your file, and type 'hooks();' everytime you need hooks ;-)

module hooks(){

union(){

translate([-22.5,0,0]){

hookPart();

}

translate([12.5,0,0]){

hookPart();

}

translate([-60,0,0]){

hookPart();

}

translate([50,0,0]){

hookPart();

}

//base-part

translate([0,-40,2])

cube([120,10,4],center=true);

}

}

module hookPart(){

translate([0,-40,21])

rotate([45,0,0])

cube([10,10,5]);

translate([0,-45,0])

cube([10,5,25]);

}

hooks();
