Currently only supports mendel and sturdy machine variants, the huxley version needs more work.

Add the directory of the OpenScad executable to your search path. For Windows OpenSCAD-2012.02 or later is required. For Linux it will need to be openscad-2011.12 or later.
To get PDF versions of the sheet drawings add InkScape to your search path.

To make all the files for a machine run machine_name

To make just the bom, sheets or stls run, or machine_name.

machine_name can be mendel or sturdy. To make your own variant copy scad\conf\mendel_config.scad or scad\conf\sturdy_config.scad to yourname_config.scad.  Then run make_machine yourname.

To view the model of the whole machine, open scad\main.scad. It will take several minutes to render (about about 8 minutes on my computer) but after that you can pan and zoom it at reasonable speed and changes takes less time to render.  (Note: main.scad will only render correctly if conf\machine.scad exists, which is created by the script.)

To view a sub-assembly, open the individual scad files. Set the exploded flag in config.scad to make exploded views.

To get blender renders of all the parts put blender in your search path and run machine_name.
