Save time and money

I often find very nice designs, but not optimized, leading to a waste of filament.
But now, we have these tools:
- use either Riham's online or my python standalone converter to turn your STL file to SCAD;
- use OpenSCAD CSG tools to slim the design.
Keep in mind that things should remain strong enough and printable, at least as much as the original were!
On the screeshot, you can see how I removed a large inner part of the boostersÂ¹. Also note that I used cones, in order to keep parts easily printable. I also removed a quarter of the part, just to show the process.
