script file based graphical CAD environment
  4 reviews

OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD objects. It focuses on CAD aspects rather than artistic ones.

OpenSCAD is not an interactive modeller. Instead it is something like a 3D-compiler that reads in a script file that describes the object and renders the 3D model from this script. This gives the designer full control over the modelling process and enables him to easily change any step in the modelling process or make designes that are defined by configurable parameters.

IMO, the best CAD for programmers looking to design accurate components (as opposed to artistic models).

A must for making 3D print designs to work with thingiverse's "customizer" app. Don't be intimidated by the scripting, it's totally doable!

Must-have for 3d printing. 2014 versions are better, but this one (2013.01) works great
