=SVG2SCAD= svg2scad (0.005) is a perl script and requires some additional modules, which you can install like this: % cpan XML::Simple Math::Bezier Data::Dumper that's all. ==Install Script== % cp svg2scad /usr/bin/ or % sudo make install ==How to use== 1) Draw a path in Inkscape, save it as file.svg 2) Run svg2scad % svg2scad file.svg creates a file.scad 3) OpenSCAD you can include that file: linear_extrude(height=10) include <file.scad> and hit F5 to display the polygon, or make a nice extrusion: % svg2scad -openrot sample4.svg the -openrot switch ensures open polygon prepared for rotational extrusion: first and last coordinate x-position to be the same, making a closed volume; OpenSCAD otherwise cannot compile and create a STL file. rotate_extrude ($fn=100) include <sample4.scad> 4) higher bezier curve subdivision (default = 32) % svg2scad -bzsteps 64 myvase.svg that's it!
