Using external editor for OpenSCAD

The text editor build into OpenSCAD is quite limited, you can't search for example. Luckyly it's really easy to use an external text editor. 
Enable Design > Automatic Reload and Compile. 
You can open the same file in a external text editor, when you save this document the preview is automatically updated in OpenSCAD. 

When you use TextMate or Sublime editor you can add the following bundle to improve autocompletion.

Designing for lasercutting in OpenSCAD

You can use OpenSCAD for designing lasercuttable objects. Benefits are the parametric possibilities and the 3D preview, but it does have some limitatons. OpenSCAD only draws solid shapes. This means it's impossible to draw for example folding lines (withoud a double line). See the following feature request: Better support 2D models by adding lines

Getting started

work flow

Every tuesday FabLab Amersfoort is open from 10:00 to 22:00 hours. We expect visitors to do something in return for using the lab. The system for that is as follows: On entry every visitor pays €50 cash. To earn those back you have to do something that is worth the same as using the Fablab has been worth to you. That can be anything: You can share your design, you can fix the lights, you can give us a tool we need, or leave (part of) your payment behind. At the end of the month we will use that money to pay the rent, do maintenance and buy new machines.
