NopSCADlib

An ever expanding library of parts modelled in OpenSCAD useful for 3D printers and enclosures for electronics, etc.

It contains lots of vitamins (the RepRap term for non-printed parts), some general purpose printed parts and some utilities. There are also Python scripts to generate Bills of Materials (BOMs), STL files for all the printed parts, DXF files for CNC routed parts in a project and a manual containing assembly instructions and exploded views by scraping markdown embedded in OpenSCAD comments, see scripts. A simple example project can be found here.

For more examples of what it can make see the gallery.

The license is GNU General Public License v3.0, see COPYING.

See usage for requirements, installation instructions and a usage guide.

Ball_bearings

Simple model of ball bearings with seals, the colour of which can be specified. If silver they are assumed to be metal and the part number gets a ZZ suffix. Any other colour is assumed to be rubber and the suffix is -2RS.

If a ball bearing has a child it is placed on its top surface, the same as nuts and washers, etc.

Also single bearing balls are modelled as just a silver sphere and a BOM entry.

Sheets

Sheet materials. Rectangular with optional rounded corners. Negative radii make a chamfer.

The "Soft" parameter can be used to determinesif the sheet material needs machine screws or wood screws, e.g.:

  • If soft, wood screws will be used, with a pilot hole.
  • If not soft, either tapped holes or a clearance hole and nuts will be used to retain screws.

The "Color" parameter is a quad-array: [R, G, B, Alpha], or can be a named color, see OpenSCAD_User_Manual.

For speed sheets should be modelled in 2D by subtracting holes from 2D templates made by sheet_2D() and then extruded to 3D with render_2D_sheet(). Note that modules that drill holes will return a 2D object if h is set to 0 to facilitate this.

Box

A box made from routed or laser cut sheet sheets and printed profiles and bezels. It can be arbitrarily large compared to the 3D printed parts because they can be cut into interlocking sections and solvent welded together. The box panels can be customised to have holes and parts mounted on them by overriding the definitions of box_base(), box_front(), etc.

box.scad should be used and box_assembly.scad included.

A box is defined with a list that specifies the inside dimensions, top, bottom and side sheet materials, the screw type and printed part wall thickness. This diagram shows how the various dimensions are labelled:

Normally the side sheets are the same type but they can be overridden individually as long as the substitute has the same thickness.

Functions

Function Description

box_corner_gap(type) Gap between box_sheets at the corners to connect inside and outside profiles
box_inset(type) How much the bezel intrudes on the specified width and length, away from the corners
box_intrusion(type) Corner profile intrusion
box_margin(type) How much the bezel intrudes on the specified height
box_outset(type) How much the bezel expands the specified internal size

Butt_box

A box made from CNC cut panels butted together using printed fixing blocks. Useful for making large boxes with minimal 3D printing. More blocks are added as the box gets bigger.

Offset

3D offset using minkowski with a sphere, so very slow if $fn is not kept small. The offset can be positive or negative.

Can be used to round corners. Positive offsets will round convex corners, negative offsets round concave corners. To round both use round_3D().

Sweep

Utility to generate a polhedron by sweeping a 2D profile along a 3D path and utilities for generating paths.

The initial orientation is the Y axis of the profile points towards the initial center of curvature, Frenet-Serret style. This means the first three points must not be colinear. Subsequent rotations use the minimum rotation method.

The path can be open or closed. If closed sweep ensures that the start and end have the same rotation to line up. An additional twist around the path can be specified. If the path is closed this should be a multiple of 360.
