/* Todo:
- implement "dxf" mode
- implement hole cutout pattern - interference based on hole size, compatible with two sizes above and below the currently set size.
*/
// zBeam(segments) - create a vertical gridbeam strut 'segments' long
// xBeam(segments) - create a horizontal gridbeam strut along the X axis
// yBeam(segments) - create a horizontal gridbeam strut along the Y axis
// zBolt(segments) - create a bolt 'segments' in length
// xBolt(segments)
// yBolt(segments)
// topShelf(width, depth, corners) - create a shelf suitable for use in gridbeam structures width and depth in 'segments', corners == 1 notches corners
// bottomShelf(width, depth, corners) - like topShelf, but aligns shelf to underside of beams
// backBoard(width, height, corners) - create a backing board suitable for use in gridbeam structures width and height in 'segments', corners == 1 notches corners
// frontBoard(width, height, corners) - like backBoard, but aligns board to front side of beams
// translateBeam([x, y, z]) - translate gridbeam struts or shelves in X, Y, or Z axes in units 'segments'
// To render the DXF file from the command line:
// openscad -x connector.dxf -D'mode="dxf"' connector.scad
mode = "model";
//mode = "dxf";
