Trying to open OpenScad

eager

Hi I'm a newbie to Openscad and Download OpenSCAD - and converting .scad files to .stl for 3D printing.


I downloaded Openscad but when I unzip it and choose the .exe file a green Open button appears but pressing it does nothing.


Thanks for your help.


Downloaded here...

http://www.openscad.org/downloads.html - and open the file.

 

  I never reach this point... 

Then under File > Export > Export as STL

That is strange.  You are actually pulling it out of the .zip file right?  Sometimes with windows you can double click on a zip file and it will open it in a file browser.  But the files are actually not unzipped yet.  You have to copy them to a different location, or choose to extract-all.

Maybe post a screen shot?  It works for me.
