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
Update4: finally we released the source code on [GitHub](https://github.com/printingin3d/javascad) under GNU GLP v2 licence. If you have any question don't hesitate to contact us!

Cool. Direct STL export was the main reason for developing it :)
@all Please contribute to JavaCSG and JavaFXScad!
It was quite easy to move the codebase to Java7. Here it is: https://github.com/printingin3...
It does export to STL directly, so I am more than interested to integrate this to JavaSCAD. As far as I see it won't be too hard to do, but we will see how it works out.
