OpenSCAD for CentOS 6

I am thinking about getting a 3D Printer but before jumping in, I wanted to test out some software to see how hard it is to drive these things.

OpenSCAD

It was suggested that I check out OpenSCAD, the programmers 3D CAD program.

As usual, for CentOS-6, it did not exist. Building it was tricky and required a bit of finesse. You can download my beta build and dependencies from http://www.chrysocome.net/download

Installation Instructions

Note: gmp 5.0 is named gmp5 so it can co-exist with the system version 4.3
Note: mpfr 3.1 is names mpfr3 so it can co-exist with the system version 2.4
yum install gmp5-5.0.5-3.el6.x86_64.rpm mpfr3-3.1.0-2.el6.x86_64.rpm CGAL-4.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm opencsg-1.3.2-6.el6.x86_64.rpm openscad-2013.06-8.el6.x86_64.rpm --enablerepo=epel

I also need to make sure that the MCAD libraries are correctly packaged. I'll try and make an updated version soon.

FreeCAD

 

FreeCAD is a more traditional click and draw interface which is apparently very good and has many features. It can also be scripted with python. RPMs are available from RPM Fusion Nonfree

Conclusion

I need a lot of practice before I will be making any 3D objects!

    1. Thanks for this installation guide. I would like to add that OpenSCAD is a scripted 3D editor for parametric models. The program takes up very little space on your hard drive, while it has extensive functionality that allows you to create complex and multifaceted models. The program has everything a programmer needs, including dividing the program into modules, the ability to write libraries, loops, conditions and functions (for example, mathematical). Using mathematical functions, you can create fairly complex geometric shapes, and then connect them together, resulting in even more complex models. I gathered this information from the posts on Twitter in which the authors talk about different 3D editors. I found a lot of such posts there and noticed that on average they are published by accounts that have about 30 thousand subscribers! Surely, in order to achieve such indicators, the owners of these accounts have resorted to using the services of https://viplikes.net/buy-twitter-followers to quickly increase their number.

  31. These free trade zones offer the opportunity to create an offshore company in a highly developed infrastructure for the banking and financial sectors, business, tourism and entertainment. Free trade zones offer a high standard of living, security and stability, as well as opportunities for children and young people such as kindergartens, schools and international colleges. One important limitation should be noted - the ban on trade in the UAE market. A Free Trade Zone Offshore Company can operate in the local business market only through a local distributor. http://www.confiduss.com/en/info/blog/article/uae-trading-offshore/
