We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a small web page that will convert your STL files to OpenSCAD files, it supports both ASCII STL and Binary STL files.
The best thing about this is that instead of just embedding your stl files in the OpenSCAD you can actually make them part of it, which means they can be used with Customizer.
Please report all bugs to me, or just feel free to fix the bugs yourself, the JSFiddle is available publicly, you can fork it and make any changes
**This was tested only on Chrome - several people have left comments saying it doesn't work on other browsers, unfortunately I haven't had a chance to make it work on other browsers, but you can use the standalone version provided by fma at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:64709
I really wanted to be able to create designs on 3D software and still be able to customize it, most of the software I found generates STL files and I can't find a way to convert it to openSCAD - so I created this small web page. I attached a sample project I created on https://tinkercad.com and the generated OpenScad file for it.
If you find this useful, please make your thing a derivative of this one :)
Update:2/15/16 I finally made the change to use faces instead of triangles
