Looking for a freelancer to help / need to know if this is possible through openscad
This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
We have a base 3D model of a piece of jewelry and have a bucket of simple closed path SVGs. Looking for someone to essentially create a script which imports the SVGs and "subtracts" that outline shape from the center of the model. Is this something that can be done fairly easily? We have about 1000 or so models we need to generate this way. We are looking to find a freelancer or someone capable of doing this and we can negotiate a rate (I am assuming openSCAD would be an easy way to do this).
Mods: Please delete if we aren't allowed to post jobs on here and my apologies.
I'm no wizard at OpenSCAD and frequently struggle with what I would expect others might consider simple coding, but what you're asking is very straight-forward. I've performed a similar task a few times, but not one thousand times !
There is an improved version of that inkscape to openscad converter here:
- http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1065500 Supports lines and closed shapes as well as nesting.
Puts the polygons in their own variables for easy reuse.
