Taking a look at ManifoldCAD

I’ve been taking a brief look at ManifoldCAD, a 3DCAD program in the style of OpenSCAD that runs in the browser and uses Javascript. ManifoldCAD is a relative new project from Emmet Lalish. 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

In this blog post I’ll continue a previous post about polyhedron in OpenSCAD. Now we create something more exiting, a twisted vase.

A curved 3d printed lithophane in OpenSCAD

Creating a 3d printable lithophane in OpenSCAD is relatively easy. But in this post we use a trick to create a curved lithophane.

Peddle wheel boat (3D printed)

I found an example on Thingiverse, a rubber band powered boat with two peddle wheels, but it has two problems. First of all the author only provides .stl files and second the design is a bit flawed. I therefore decided to design the boat from scratch with the 3d CAD program OpenSCAD. With OpenSCAD I’m […]

OpenSCAD: Polygon and polyhedron

OpenSCAD allows the user to create complex shapes with the polygon function for 2D and polyhedron for 3D. Polygon and polyhedron both accept a list of 2D and 3D coordinates (points) respectively as parameters. A functions can generate a list of points eliminating the need to manually created these lists. This property can be used […]
