OpenSCAD Design Tips
Finally I’ve designed a printable Voltron of which I can be proud. It’s designed totally in OpenSCAD using just about every single OpenSCAD trick I know. Additionally, I designed a hinge connector system that, I think, compliments Tony Buser’s Pin Connectors v2 system nicely. In fact, some of the connector pieces for this model are basically a Buser pin connector on one side and a hinge/joint connector on the other. The result is a snap-fit highly articulated/poseable model.
I wanted to share some of these design tricks with you over the next few posts. Here’s a quick preview:
- How to sketch an object with OpenSCAD
- How to easily make regular solids – other than cubes and cylinders, like hexagons, pentagons, octagons, etc
- How to easily make symmetrical solids
- How to easily make irregular, but symmetrical solids
Stay tuned for these ideas!
