Doing an OpenSCAD presentation this Saturday.

Kevin Crowley
And I have fallen behind on my prep work. Looking  for stuff I can "plagiarize" to help fill it out.  It's geared to beginners with programming experience.  My local LInux Users Group.

TIA, 
Kevin

Check the "Other Tutorials" section on openscad.org. Also, if you find anything new, it would be cool to add it there (the web page is a git repository :)).

Hi,

I wrote a sample program to make cylinders with varrying radius (=columns).
It is on thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23971 .

Enjoy,

Wenn Du gerne mehr lesen möchtest, dann lass es mich bitte wissen.

P.S. In case my e-mail is shorter than you enjoy:
I am currently trying short replies instead of no replies at all.
Please let me know, if you like to read more.

You can find 3D model pix & the corresponding OpenSCAD code on my blog
by searching for "OpenSCAD source code":

http://softsolder.com/?s=%22openscad+source+code%22

The killer project so far has been the case for my APRS + voice interface:

http://softsolder.com/2012/07/09/wouxun-kg-uv3d-gps-voice-interface-improved-case/

It shows off the advantages of 3D printing in a big way. I bought the
printer specifically to make that thing, but I needed a year before
knowing enough to model the case the way I wanted.

This refrigerator shelf bracket might be more comprehensible for
beginners, because the OpenSCAD code doesn't go on for pages:

http://softsolder.com/2012/11/02/whirlpool-refrigerator-replacement-freezer-shelf-bracket/
Short link: http://wp.me/poZKh-30o

I gave a presentation on DIY 3D Printing last year for the local ACM
chapter, with a little bit of OpenSCAD to show how solid modeling works:

http://softsolder.com/2012/05/18/presentation-for-poughkeepsie-acm-diy-3d-printing-hardware-software/
Short link: http://wp.me/poZKh-2Ft

The emphasis was more on 3D modeling gotchas than the source code,
though, but your students will ram the gotchas pretty quickly, soooo...

I recently did a little tutorial on using openscad for 2d machining:

Hi, Matthew,

I already have that blog entry open in its own window.  I've been
using OpenSCAD for STL files for quite some time now, but I also have
access to a laser cutter and I do make enclosures and such with it.  I
like the ability to tweak material thickness (I have 3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm,
and 5mm acrylic in my "end cuts" bin) and automagically resize the
matching slots.

Thanks for posting it!
