OpenSCAD Cookbook: OpenSCAD Recipes for learning 3D modeling


This book is for Makers, Engineers, and anyone who wants to create 3D shapes for 3D printing or manufacturing.OpenSCAD has some great advantages over other software you might choose to use. It's free, runs on Windows, Macs, and Linux machines, has a much shorter learning curve, and it puts you in control of your designs instead of your designs controlling you!Using a fun, recipe-like pattern, this book guides you through simple 3D designs that cover 99% of the operations and techniques used day-to-day with OpenSCAD. You'll be baking and making in no time at all! Guidance is provided where you might need some of the more obscure features of the language, but the focus is on fast and efficient learning of the core basics.OpenSCAD works in a different way compared to the expensive commercial software packages typically used for 3D design. Instead of interactively choosing from a multitude of obscure, hard to remember icons, buttons, menus, and sub-feature options to sketch out your designs with a mouse, OpenSCAD lets you edit a text-based script that creates your 3D objects. You get the best of both worlds, because you can easily pan, rotate, and zoom to see your creations in space, but the creation of those shapes is much more in your control and understanding.
