OpenSCAD

 

Introduction and Download

OpenSCAD is available to download (for PC, Mac and Linux) from here.

The source code is also available from the above link, so if you have a C-compiler, then you may be able to use it on other platforms.

OpenSCAD can be used for generating 2D DXF files for use on the Dyson Centre laser cutters, for example; or 3D STL files for use on the Dyson Centre 3D printers, for example.

 

Tutorials, Cheatsheet and Range of Commands

A very handy cheatsheet / quick reference sheet is available here.

Full documentation and other resources, such as tutorials are available here.

The Engineering Department are delighted to announce a major refurbishment project taking place in the Summer of 2015. 

£2M donation from the James Dyson Foundation, a £2.65M investment from the Higher Education Funding Council for England and £0.6M from the University of Cambridge will allow us to transform the workshop and library facilities for hands-on learning, access to information, and the encouragement of creativity and innovation.
