Woodworking and OpenSCAD

mailinglists-openscad-discuss
Hi,

I am currently designing a few woodworking proejects and wondered,
if there is an existing woodworking library and if not, if I should
start building one.

Useful reusable objects for example could be a wooden board thats
automatically retuning its dimensions, so it can be used for a material
list; or a set of milling machine heads ( which could easily be used to
add grooves etc with difference and linear extrude )

Or to rephrase the question:
What does a library need to have, so it can be included in openscad?

I have a library like this, but it's far from generic and done for my own
needs. But I do have parts defined, and get stuff like shopping lists (once
again, tuned for my local suppliers), work tasks, time estimates and weight.

I've made it part by part. Whenever I need a new part, I write a module for
it. As I go, I need fewer and fewer new parts.

It's not really that hard to do, and I really recommend doing it.

I am currently doing it that way too, but my idea was to pool ressources
( and maybe get a list of best practices like including an "explode"
parameter for higher level units like drawers)

I've been working through this sort of thing in projects such as:


under the name "Design into 3D": https://designinto3d.com/



The biggest problem which I'm trying to address is the matter of working up toolpaths (as opposed to relying on exporting an STL and using a 3rd party CAM tool) and representing arcs/curves without using polylines.
