A library to create primitives with 45° chamfers in OpenSCAD.
What it does
chamferCylinder can be used to create chamfered versions of the existing
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.
chamferCylindercan also produce a circular sector (wedge), what the cylinder command cannot
circleSegmentsfunction calculates the amount of segments needed for a certain circle radius, it reproduces a much better quality than $fa and $fs settings
globalCircleQualityvariable can be set to globally override the standard setting of 1.0, but the quality setting in
chamferCylinderstil has precedence over this variable
