All files have been replaced with 'var' (variant) files. You can add whatever variants you want to your print bed. These work much better in Slic3r than the pre-built arrays.
Currently supports the following OpenLock shapes in Customizer:
A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U, R, S, SA, SB, V
It currently has support for three textures (Cobblestone, Grass and Slate), as well as flat tiles. (These are floor only textures, and do not extend to the walls.) For any tile smaller than 4" on a side, it will psuedo randomize the texture each time you make a tile. This is an easy way to avoid a lot of the same tile in your dungeon.
All uploaded STLs are "Imperial" measurements (standard 1" OpenLock format), but you can customize through Customizer for "Metric" (25mm) tiles, such as used by other systems.
Note: The master repository for all the sources is now at Github: https://github.com/caitlynb/OpenSCAD-OpenLock
The default STLs print with an embedded support in the OpenLock port. Just take a pair of pliers, and rotate it out once printed.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you are using the built in supports, please edit your slicer Layer Height settings so that the support is separated from the main piece. (There is only a 0.2mm gap in the default STLs, so it is easy for your slicer to miss it.) Usually, if you are printing at 0.2mm, then a first layer height of 0.25mm will accomplish this. (But its worth checking before you print many items.)
This thing is inspired by and compatible with the OpenLock system designed by PrintableScenery.
(However, this is a complete remake in SCAD. All the work here-in is original.)
For all the files that are uploaded, they follow this naming convention:
- OSOL: OpenSCAD OpenLock
- E: The OpenLock Part ID
- Imperial: Whether the part is 1" or 25mm based
- 8: Height of the tile in mm
- Cobble: Texture of the top surface
- FF: See array explanation below.
For Arrays: Because these parts are randomized on generation, it is helpful to download the largest array your printer will accommodate. This way, you get the most variety in floor patterns. There are four 'array sizes':
- None: No array, single part (and single pattern) only
- Small: For ~4"x~4" printers
- FF: For Makerbot clone printers
- i3: For MK2 sized print beds.
Note, some parts are so large that there might still only be one pattern in an array file.
