OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models. It focuses primarily on object design instead of artistic expression.

OpenSCAD is not an interactive modeler. Instead it is something like a 3D-compiler that reads in a script file that describes the object and renders the 3D model from this script file. OpenSCAD provides two main modeling techniques: First there is constructive solid geometry (aka CSG) and second there is extrusion of 2D outlines. As data exchange format format for this 2D outlines Autocad DXF files are used. In addition to 2D paths for extrusion it is
What's New
Version 2013.06:
  • Linear_extrude now takes a scale parameter: linear_extrude(height=a, slices=b, twist=c, scale=[x,y])
  • Recursive use of modules is now supported (including cascading child() operations), see example024
  • Parameter list values can now depend on earlier values: for (i=[0:2], j=[0:i])
  • value assignments in parameters can now depend on already declared parameters
  • Added resize() module Program Features
  • Added basic syntax highlighting in the editor
  • There is now a built-in library path in user-space
  • Commandline output to PNG, with various camera and rendering settings. Run openscad -h to see usage info or see the user manual
  • Attempting to open or drag&drop dxf, off or stl files in the GUI will now create an import statement.
  • The preview operator (%) will now preserve any manually set color
  • The highlight operator (#) will now color the object in transparent red
  • Mac: Added document icon
  • Mac: Added auto-update check

Besides DXF files OpenSCAD can read and create 3D models in the STL and OFF file formats.
