Generate a 3D model from an arbitrary source of data!
This is my first attempt at an OpenSCAD script that takes an MD5 hash of a file as input and creates a unique physical object from it.
OpenSCAD doesn't have a lot of string functions, so it's not quite as streamlined as that, but it's not too bad.
I've written more about it at the Ponoko blog. Check it out: http://blog.ponoko.com/2011/05/25/openscad-project-files-to-physicals
(The example model is created from my copy of Sea Within a Sea by The Horrors.)
Generate an md5 hash of a file
Paste it into my script here to create an fp_data.scad file: http://www.obscenis.com/filestophysicals/
Put fp_data.scad into the same folder as the main script and compile Files to Physicals.scad
