OpenSCAD in a browser

jon_bondy
I rarely travel, but will be doing so in the next month.  It would be
useful to be able to work on OpenSCAD designs while away. Are there  any
web sites that provide an OpenSCAD that works in a browser (on an
Android tablet, which I guess means Chrome)?  I know that there are
things like OpenJSCAD, but while they are similar, you cannot just take
the code from one to the other.

Thanks

Jon

I don't think there's anything like that really, aside from thingiverse customizer level of functionality.

It would be interesting if OpenSCAD could be compiled into WebAssembly.  I've never tried something like that, but I have a feeling that all the gui dependencies Qt, OpenCSG/OpenGL, etc would need too much overhaul.

I'm not aware of any big ones. There seems to be some
work going on by Autodrop3d to provide that, but I have
no idea what the state is.

https://twitter.com/autodrop3d/status/1191124430325526528

I just found: https://g3nius.org/openscad-web-editor/

And there's also https://www.rollapp.com/app/openscad which
is like running OpenSCAD on a remote server, I believe.

It would be great to see some more of that, e.g. integration
with or similar service as https://godbolt.org/ and maybe
real browser version like the old fabfabbers version.

ciao,
  Torsten.

Torsten:

Thanks!  I found the g3nius one but had no idea what to do with it.  I
tried clicking on the Browse, but that did not help.  I was expecting to
either be able to open an edit box to copy-and-paste my source code, or
be allowed to select a local file.   Requiring that the code is in a
github repository seems a bit restrictive.

This is based on https://github.com/EiNSTeiN-/openscad-js, which is a partial JS implementation of OpenSCAD using csg.js as a backend.

There's also http://openscad.net/ - which is basically OpenJSCad with an  OpenSCAD-like skin and default to .scad files.

Thanks!  Everything I put into this results in a mass of cryptic and
un-helpful error messages.

One way that I solve this is by using a remote control program such as teamviewer (free for personal use) or Splashtop.  You run the listener on your PC, then run the viewer on the tablet. I know that Splashtop will run directly in the Chrome browser. Then you can remote control your PC from the tablet from anywhere that has internet.  This means you can use any programs on your desktop “from” your tablet.   You do have to keep your desktop pc running (no sleep mode) while you are traveling.

BlocksCAD?

https://www.blockscad3d.com/editor/

I extract OpenSCAD from it for further work.

I used ScorchCAD on my Android tablet last year.  Available in the Google
Play store.
It's supposed to have most but not all of the functionality of desktop
OpenSCAD but at an older version.  
It worked ok for me last year (save often!) but I couldn't get it to
generate the model I copied over a few weeks ago.  I just haven't looked at
it since.
Also serves as an STL viewer.

While it works, it has some severe limitations, most important is that you
cant use include or use, which any reasonably complex project will use.

It's great for doing simple tests, though, or to make modules to add to your
standard lib. For example, I made a few variants of ogive modules (2D, 3D,
hollow, solid, truncated...) for my standard lib while flying to Dublin.
