OpenSCAD is an open-source 3D design platform that helps you bring your designs to life. This book will show you how to make the best use of OpenSCAD to design and build objects using 3D printers.
This OpenSCAD book starts Author: taking you through the 3D printing technology, the software used for designing your objects, and an analysis of the G-code produced Author: the 3D printer slicer software. Complete with step-Author:-step explanations of essential concepts and real-world examples such as designing and printing a 3D name badge, model rocket, and laptop stand, the book helps you learn about 3D printers and how to set up a printing job. You’ll design your objects using the OpenSCAD program that provides a robust and free 3D compiler at your fingertips. As you set up a 3D printer for a print job, you’ll gain a solid understanding of how to configure the parameters to build well-defined designs.
Author: the end of this 3D printing book, you’ll be ready to start designing and printing your own 3D printed products using OpenSCAD.
