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.

I got this message from github two hour ago https://github.com/JustinSDK/dotSCAD/issues/32#issuecomment-1318700734
Thank you for dotSCAD. Sad to know that.
Is there a good OpenSCAD like programatic modeling package that uses a more OOP paradigm? OpenSCAD is really amazing. It's my go-to for pretty much anything Laser cut or 3D printed. The ability to easily tweak a variable and have the model restructure around that tweak is incredible. For more complex models it would be great if there classes and objects to simplify the code and make modules more recyclable.
Do you all have any other suggestions?
Ok, i need help. I'm trying to create something like an "hook" (wrong term) with 2 dovetails in the opposite side, so that the object with the male dovetail could be fitted in both direction, normally and upside down.
The top dovetail is working, the bottom one seems a little bit too small, but i'm unable to figure out why.
Probably there is some bad measure that i'm using to create or position the dovetail.
Any help ? (the code is a mess, i've tried to clean a little bit for posting, but it's an extract from a bigger project)
main goal is to have the male dovetail with a little bit friction, easily movable by hand (but not by gravity) (i can change the female, but not the male, because it's already printed)
