Re: FW: bending a shape that's only slightly complex

RobWLakes
I chose to disregard the answer.

Is OpenSCAD the best language to extend OpenSCAD? How much do we multiply failings? I don't have confidence in that idea given OpenSCAD's intrinsic structural, functionsl and variable access limitations. Yes, some exotic things can be done(most impressive libraries), but are they elegant , and an extension most users can appreciate and further build on?

I think the argument for OpenSCAD in a Python environment addresses the fundimental dilemma of not just improving the functions that the OpenSCAD paradigm defines, but the language structures that support it.
Clinging to the OpenSCAD language to support itself(no limitation to the truly inspired) is fine for some, but a huge wall to scale for so many other potential contributors.
Cheers, RobW

Thanks Rob. This is not just aimed at you.

EVERYONE, yes there are some cultural discussion in other threads, but,
PLEASE REPLY TO THE TOPIC UNDER DISCUSSION.

This is: bending a shape that's only slightly complex

And follows discussion of sweep libraries, all OpenSCAD, not python.

NO, do not reply to this thread if you have an issue, don't be lazy,
start a new one, easy on the forum (click 'New Topic'),
or for Mailing-list users - send a NEW email,with a NEW Subject, to
[hidden email]

But shouldn't we always consider how a better programming language would help solve these problems? Or is that OpenSCAD taboo?

Rob:

If you want to talk about better programming languages, that is fine.  Just put it under its own topic/thread, not under a "bending" topic where no one will be able to find it later.

If you don't like OpenSCAD for solving problems why not use a language you do like? I don't think OpenSCAD will suddenly morph into Python anytime soon.

Re: FW: bending a shape that's only slightly complex

RobWLakes
My problem I very much like the OpenSCAD paradigm, ie cube(10), and I do not want to jump ship. I just wonder how much easier these problems could be solved if the OpenSCAD language was structured differently, preferably modified? This question could be posed countless times to threads in this forum, and I apologize for the vagueness of the response to this particular thread. However solving some of these problems in OpenSCAD with even more OpenSCAD seems like going down the proverbial Rabbit Hole.

I personally don't have any problem implementing what I need in OpenSCAD, which is why I stick with it as I find it the simplest way to make 3D printable models. There are lots of other languages I could use if I needed something more complicated but I don't.

ATM I'm considering action. But here it is 00:12 hours.

 

So I will tamper my moderator action 'till morning.

 

NO, do not reply to this thread if you have an issue

 

EVERYONE please reply to the thread which is the topic that is relevant.

 

It would also help if you'all ignored off-topic posts, if you must please quote the 'responder' in a NEW topic.

 

I resist debating the 'paradigm' here, but I may elsewhere tomorrow...

Forum ADMIN.

 

No do not reply to this....I believe then 'bending' topic is complete...
