laserscad - A library for efficient lasercutting with OpenSCAD

mbugert
As of now, designing lasercut models with OpenSCAD is clunky and rather
painful. You are either forced to work in 2D without a 3D preview, or you
are forced to work with predefined shapes. So here's laserscad, a library
which makes lasercutting with OpenSCAD much, much easier.

Key features:
        * Laser whichever shape you want
        * Model in 3D, then run one command to generate a 2D lasercutting template
with all parts
        * Save time, because 2D parts are arranged automatically
        * Add engravings to identify parts (or to make things look fancy)

The code, a tutorial, rich documentation, etc. can be found here:
https://github.com/mbugert/laserscad <https://github.com/mbugert/laserscad>  
Here is a bigger project I realized with laserscad:
https://github.com/mbugert/volca-case
<https://github.com/mbugert/volca-case>  

Feedback and/or bug reports are always welcome.
