topic propositions

I'm not an export in designing with OpenSCAD but from what I've read, I think there would be some useful addition to this page :

  • use a low $fn during the draft designs and raise it only when exporting to STL
  • use MCAD
    • namely the polyline module from NopHead to produce correctly sized round holes
  • 3d printer aren't perfect, so prepare a fixed (or better yet, a parameterized) clearance for shapes having to fit another.
  • when making a difference between shapes, make the removed part 'longer' than needed, it will improve the preview display.
