writing text on the side of a cone....

bboett
hello!
on another subject my wife wants seedling protectors....
its a cylinder with on top a truncated cone to dissuade the rampant insects/molluscs to get inside and eat the seedling...

without the truncated cone, i can write on the cylinder with the write.scad library...
that library has several possibilities, but i didn't find the one to write on a cone?
did i miss something?

that's what i tried:
<use Writescad/write.scad>
module collerette(d = 60, h=60)
{
  translate([0,0,height-20])
    difference()
    {
      union()
      {
        color("magenta")cylinder(d1=d+2*w+40, d2=d,h = 20);
        translate([0,0,50])rotate([-40,06,0])mirror([0,0,1])writecylinder(label[index],[0,0,0],radius=(d+70+2*w)/2,height=0,rotate=10,east=0,face="top",h=10);
        if(len(label[index]) < PI*5.5)
          writecylinder(label[index],[0,0,0],radius=40,height=105,rotate=0,east=180,face="top",h=10);
      }
      color("black")translate([0,0,-0.1])cylinder(d1=d+40, d2=d-2*w,h = 20.2);
    }
}



now before i consume even more time on this than planned, maybe there's allready some easy solution to this?

thanks in advance
Bruno

Sounds like https://github.com/brodykenrick/text_on_OpenSCAD/
might help too.

ciao,

There are complicated ways of doing this, but the simple way is to simply add
a flat "plate" to the cone, and put the text on that, assuming that the
exact shape of the cone isn't critical. That's how I solved a similar
problem, and it looked pretty neat.

Yep, sorry, forgot to answer, thanks Torsten for the pointer, and as Torsten pointed out, the more recent version of writescad by brody kenrick does write on cones too!
and for Troberg, the cone is hollow (inside are the seedlings) so the writing really has to be on the lower border of the (truncated) cone....
but as says, the newer write lib solved this!
