OpenSCAD is an open source programming language and IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for parametric 3D design. It is used to create precise, customizable and easily modifiable designs ready for 3D printing. It has a growing developer community and is the tool used to create designs compatible with the MakerBot Customizer app: http://www.thingiverse.com/apps/customizer

You can download OpenSCAD from www.openscad.org/downloads.html

This group is a place to discuss all things OpenSCAD including (but not limited to) new features, techniques, questions, libraries, works in progress, etc. So post a new Topic or contribute on an existing one!

Share knowledge, get constructive feedback, and ask questions!

Join to add your OpenSCAD designs or libraries to this group's Things. Non-OpenSCAD designs will be removed.

Have fun!
