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 also possible to read design parameters more...
- 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 more...
