Python for 3D Printing: Using Python to enhance the power of OpenSCAD for 3D modeling

English | 2019 | ISBN-13 : 978-1696881944 | 214 Pages | PDF, EPUB, AZW3 | 33.24 MB

Python is quickly becoming the world's most popular programming language, for everything from quick-and-easy hobbyist calculations to running some of the biggest online websites such as Google, YouTube, Dropbox, Reddit, etc.

OpenSCAD is a powerful 3D modeling language for creating 3D printed plastic parts for hobbyists and engineers.

Python for 3D Printing enables the reader to leverage the power, versatility, & simplicity of Python to enhance & super-charge the already powerful capabilities of OpenSCAD for Makers, Engineers, & anyone who wants to create 3D shapes for 3D printing or manufacturing.

Both Python & OpenSCAD are free software tools that run on Windows, Macs, and Linux machines. The symbiotic use of these two tools enables a MUCH SHORTER LEARNING CURVE than when using the expensive software packages, & it puts you in control of your designs instead of your designs controlling you!

The complete source code Python listing for driving OpenSCAD using easier-to-use commands IS INCLUDED WITH THIS BOOK, along with examples of the use of all new commands. You'll see how easy it is to integrate these two tools such that you'll see results instantly on your screen when your Python code runs.
