OpenJSCAD to Blender Bridge #3DPrinting #3DThursday
A quick introduction to a Blender addon, Via Falldeaf
OpenJSCAD is great for creating high precision parts and it’s parameters feature makes it possible to quickly create customized variations. I ended up using parts so often in Blender that I thought it’d be really helpful to have the ability to list, adjust and import models all natively in the interface.
The caveat here is that your getParameterDefinitions() function must contain a single array that is properly JSON formatted, due to assumptions I’m making in the python script.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
