Somehow I manage to miss this yesterday :P AWESOME!

How hard would this be to adapt to trapezium thread? That would be a quick way to generate (split) drivenuts for them.

Not that hard. Would have to upgrade the triangular prism polyhderon to a trapezoidal one, which is not fun (first guess, another four triangles to define with the right winding order) but not rocket science either. I'll take a crack at it.

I think the past couple of weeks have been great for cracking OpenScad wide open. I think we've demonstrated a few techniques for going beyond blocks, and circles.

I'm sure more people will be inspired to use these techniques to make more very interesting things.

Sweetness! Just what the doctor's ordered! I have a use for this...

You are doing great work with openscad , props... ;)
