Talk:OpenSCAD tips for RepRap developers
Page under construction, indeed. Please feel free to add your contributions in the page itself and your opinions here in the Discussion tab. Thank you very much.
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.
