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've had this customizable thing up and working fine for quite a while:
Now I've made some minor improvements, and customizer doesn't handle these at all, apparently handling a "difference" like an "intersection". In the current local OpenSCAD version, the same parameters work just fine.
Here's the improved version ... change "grip cutoff angle" to 20 degrees, and you should (but currently won't) get the same result as with the old, working version linked above:
Any information on the problem, hints, workarounds, or pointers to any mistakes I might have made would be welcome! :-)
Im new to 3d printing. Im having difficulty accessing the entire customizer page. I can change thje dimensions of the object but when I try to create the object the object i cannot see the Name line or anything underneath it. I had trouble with using Thingiverse with EDGE ans switch to Chrome. Im suse the problem is in a setting but i cant figure it out.
