Re: User Poll: What do you want to see from OpenSCAD development?

I use OpenSCAD for Academic purposes. I definitely would find it very useful if OpenSCAD could compute surface and/or volume.

I think this was mentioned before. Don't remember if there is a hard limit to get this working, or if it is too much work.

I think it would be incredibly useful to be able to click on some point
of the model preview and get a "stack trace" of  geometries, modules and
transforms where the part under the cursor was created and transformed.

One way to do it, would be to have a "debug" mode, where every
cylinder,cube,etc created gets an unique color (unique chromacity)

then every transformation adds some unique saturation level (some prime
numbers magic might be needed).

Assuming that rendering only changes the luminosity of part, analyzing
the pixels color value, we could tell what lines of code are responsible
for its creation in which order - a kind of "call stack"

there might be a better way of doing this, this is only an idea, which
seemed doable.
