Helpful post on Make for OpenScad users.
OpenSCAD is an open source solid software modeler that allows you to use a declarative format to specify the shape of the object that you want to create. As a programmer, I find this so incredibly exciting that I got into 3D modeling since it lets me declare my objects in a familiar fashion. I have always been interested in procedurally generated objects; these are shapes that are created by using an algorithm that contains a random element in it. When I started using OpenSCAD, I realized that it was expressive enough to be a good tool to create them.
