If you are looking for OpenSCAD, you have come to the right place. We explain what OpenSCAD is and point you to the official download.
What is OpenSCAD?
OpenSCAD is a solid 3D model creator. It cannot precisely be called a modeler, at least not an interactive modeler, since it does not carry the features typically associated with such programs. Rather, it functions more as a compiler. In other words, its main purpose is to take a script file that describes a particular 3D model, read that file, then render the appropriate model described by that file.
As a CAD program, it supplies users with essential tools for 3D component rendering, specifically for machine parts and pieces. One cannot, therefore, describe it as a versatile 3D CAD program: instead, it is a focused one with a very specific area of concentration.
The program is a cross-platform application, which means the user can run it on several operating systems. Compatible operating systems would be Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux/UNIX. The program’s modeling techniques are of the 2D extrusion type (for those generating 3D models out of a 2D outline) and the solid geometry or CSG type. It is capable of working with DXF-extension files and can use the OFF and STL extensions for its models.

About file types supported by OpenSCAD
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files OpenSCAD can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
