Spiral Phyllotaxis in OpenSCAD

I just uploaded a video here about Spiral Phyllotaxis patterns in OpenSCAD. The video, originally posted by me on YouTube some years ago, is about a script that I made to demonstrate Spiral Phyllotaxis. Phyllotaxis is a term used for patterns that emerge during the growth of plants. Spiral Phyllotaxis is observed in the heads […]

Taking a look at ManifoldCAD

It’s free and open source software (Apache-2.0 license). In case you are not familiar with these kind of CAD programs, instead of […]

Twisted Vase in OpenSCAD

I therefore decided to design the boat from scratch with the 3d CAD program OpenSCAD. With OpenSCAD I’m […]

The BQ Hephestos2 (3D printer), nine months later

After nine months I can say that I’m satisfied with the BQ Hephestos 2 printer. It’s easy to print with and easy to maintain. It doesn’t come with a heated printbed which I consider a shortcoming but for PLA and Filaflex the printer works fine.

Using Filaflex to improve my cooler
