I wanted to tryout making parametric designs in openscad, and liked this;

But I needed an stl to process in skeinforge and work with my repstrap. I have almost recreated it in openscad. There are some differences in design but similar in outcome. Unfortunately openscad does not have a random function and does not handle recursion...

The provided stl prints a little more fragile than I'd like. And I found it's a pretty good test of a 3d printer for christmas.


open in openscad
change variables in header of file
export stl
process into gcode


open provided stl
process into gcode

Very nice, though an option to configure the spike density would be nice, I'd like less spikes but have them still evenly spaced, if I reduce the spike count I just get a bare center section.

I am making these in NinjaFlex and including inside my Christmas Cards this year - this is an awesome print! See my Make.
