It sounds like the .scad for this is one huge program? Personally I would have done this in three pieces and assembled them into a single module.

To me this breaks down as:

The upper door frame made from cubes.
The lower door frame (tumble home) printed as a section of a cylinder printed vertically.
The frippery which are simple half cylinders.

When I started in 1973 the O/S was UNIX sys III on an HP computer the size of my freezer it had 64k of ring core memory. Nowadays my humble machine has 12Gb and 16 processors.

I agree with you about the profit motivation, but that has never driven me. I do have to design some Greasly articulateds for my EE-1 to pull. So I will probably donate the .scad files for them to the G3 WIKI.

Ralph,

I will email the file for the guard's door for you to see what I have done.

One aspect of OpenSCAD I have not yet had time to investigate is how to (if it is possible) import a file into another. By that I mean, having separate modules (as you mention) and then grouping them in a single file ..... It sounds as though that may be possible from what you have said? A bit like calling a sub-routine into a main program.

Regards,
John.

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.

John,
You should be looking at CURA to collect your modules in a print.

Ralph
