This morning, you are waking up to two OpenSCAD screw libraries, released within hours of each other. While they were created for slightly different purposes — aubenc‘s focused on traditional 3D printed hardware and syvwlch offering a tool that works for generating threaded rods or lead screws with custom threading angles — we are the richer for having both of them available to us.
If you haven’t yet dived into this parametric design application yet via the OpenSCAD Institute of MakerBlock tutorial series, then this is a great time. These new libraries, and a host of other recent innovations by WilliamAAdams, offer some pretty broad shoulders to stand on to unlock the mysteries of OpenSCAD.
Or you can simply take advantage of the work they’ve done and simply 3D print that bolt you’ve been needing!
