JavaSCAD - Our little model generator framework
by printingin3d, published
This led to the creation of [JavaSCAD](http://www.printingin3d.eu/javascad), a simple framework in Java. The basic concept is to represent the OpenSCAD primitive objects with a Java object and build more complex ones from them. There is still ongoing development around JavaSCAD - for one thing it should be improved and addded more functionality and the other part is to include the OpenSCAD's 2D capabilities (the 3D features are already implemented).
Also uploaded a simple example about the current status - it's just a simple, parameterized Lego brick creator. Two brick is attached as well for those who want to see the result first.
Another example is the [gothic shelf](http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:65836), we published a few weeks ago.
Update: we just released the new version: r405 with two new features: intersection and rounding.
Update2: we just released yet another update: r426 with a new feature: polyhedron thanks for Rob van der Veer for the contribution; and a new rendering option: generation of POVRay output, which is still in a very alpha state.
Update3: yet another update with a few tweaks in the alignment abilities and fixing the rotation which was working only in special cases till now

It depends on your goals. GPL promotes free software but limits adoption, BSD promotes adoption but doesn't promote free software (beyond your framework being free), etc.
Currently we are still trying to decide the most appropriate licence which we could use to publish the source code. It turned out the originally planned GPL would be too restrictive and would prevent most of the customers to use our lib.
So, please give us some time and then we will publish the source code too.
