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

Nice! Now all we have to do is talk Tbuser into supporting alternatives to OpenSCAD on the Thingiverse Customizer! :-)
Exactly. We didn't know about PySCAD, but it seems programmers think very similarly :-) We hope JavaSCAD will be at least as successful as PySCAD was.
The intention was to add convenient methods to the objects which saves us the lots of calculation which was needed in OpenSCAD (see the [Abstract3dModel.align](http://www.printingin3d.eu/jav... method in the documentation, which is the base class for all of the solid objects)
