Summary

Since I wanted to stick a DUPLO brick to the feet of other objects, I modified the scad file with an extra 4th parameter (nibbles on or off)

First try was: I imported models to Meshlab and killed the caps of the brick. A dumb way to it as the commenters pointed out :)

This thing gave me the idea for a larger project: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2106

Of course the real solution is to make the presence of caps controlled by another parameter.

Ha thanks, just installed openscad and made it :)
I am not even a real programmer.

Commenting out the caps in the openscad file and recompiling/exporting would probably have be a easier way to remove the caps :-)

Right, I will install this program. My REAL conceptual contribution actually was DUPLOs for adults. 8-)
