Summary

A library to create primitives with 45° chamfers in OpenSCAD.

What it does

The commands chamferCube and chamferCylinder can be used to create chamfered versions of the existing cube and cylinder commands.

The Chamfers are always at a 45° angle to the ground plane and are printable on Fused deposition modelling (FDM) printers in a good quality.

Additionally

  • The chamferCylinder can also produce a circular sector (wedge), what the cylinder command cannot
  • The circleSegments function calculates the amount of segments needed for a certain circle radius, it reproduces a much better quality than $fa and $fs settings
  • A globalCircleQuality variable can be set to globally override the standard setting of 1.0, but the quality setting in chamferCylinder stil has precedence over this variable
