Summary

Hello, I just created my first model in OpenSCAD that I cobbled together from researching OpenSCAD on the internet.

This is a tv adapter that I wish to be able to print on my 3d printer - after cutting it down to fit. But at the moment I need help getting the holes to go thru the diamond plate. I put the holes in the first cross piece, then duplicated it with no problem. But when I added the diamond plate for support in the middle, the holes filled in. I don't know how to make them go thru the whole model.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

I find the easiest way to do this is to have a master body and holes function.
Like this...

// This creates the object
main();
// Renders the object and punches the holes
module main()
{
difference()
{
body();
holes();
}
}
// The solid hull
module body()
{
// All the code for the solid hull goes in here

cube(50,center=true);

}
// Holes!
module holes()
{
// All the code for holes or bits to remove goes here
cylinder(r=10,h=55,center=true);
rotate([90,0,0])cylinder(r=15,h=55,center=true);
rotate([0,90,0])cylinder(r=20,h=55,center=true);
}

The parts look okay from my looking at Adapter7,,, Print it with the hex cutouts facing up...
But it should print from what I can tell..

Union your cross pieces and plate, then difference the holes.
