Create a coin with Circular Gallifreyan text!


Some liberties were taken with the writing style, as laying out the lines would have required much more complicated logic.

If you have a lot of letters, you'll need increase 'pendant_radius' or decrease 'letter_radius'. Some value combinations cause openscad to barf, so try changing them slightly.

See http://timeturners.wikidot.com/circular-gallifreyan for the language reference, and remember that not all letters are valid!

Have noticed one issue, it won't even compile if you use capital letters anywhere or spaces.

Yep, the text needs to be one word, all lower case, no punctuation.

Awesome. I have been fiddling with this idea for ages. I'm glad you made more progress than I did!

It was loads of fun trying to figure out how to parse letters, especially since recursion wasn't an option...

I just made some minor tweaks, adding randomization and making the lines longer. It's a derivative. Feel free to take the code into your original if you want to add it to your submission to the contest (I like my Replicator, don't need a 2X). :-)

I have to say - amazing job you did implementing Gilifreyan in OpenSCAD. It's such a limited language, and you did a nice job, particularly given the lack of variables, etc.!
