Instructions for new users
- Download the scad files and keep them in the same directory.
- joints.scad is a library that creates the pins for connecting parts
- plant_shelf.scad contains the meat of the code
- assembled.scad shows a 3D view of the assemlbed box
- cutsheet.scad files are for generating the 2D output for actually cutting
- Open assembled.scad and optionally cutsheet.scad in OpenSCAD
- Make sure Design -> Automatic Reload and Compile is checked
- Edit plant_shelf.scad in a text editor. After saving changes the OpenSCAD windows should update.
- Play with the numbers to create the box you want. A visual representation of what the different variables do is shown below.
- Once complete render the 2D files by pressing F6
- File -> Export DXF or SVG
- The cutsheets aren't smart enough to scale for all box sizes. Some options to fix this:
- Edit functions.scad
- Try to drag the drawings in your CAM program. Some will support this.
- Open the DXF or SVG in Inkscape
- Post a copy of variables.scad on the Maslow forums. I might be able to post a fixed cutsheet module.
Below is a visual representation of changing some of the variables.
- Wood glue
- Nail gun?
