OpenSCAD Error

Recommended Posts

Posted · OpenSCAD Error

I've several items about the problem that I am having, but so far nothing has worked.

 

My problem OpenSCAD file has been narrowed down to this:

 

 

scale([1,1,1]) {

import("/Volumes/Storage\ 2/3d/ipadminilandscape_fixed-1.stl");

}

 

 

The file was downloaded from :http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:33418

 

I've run the file through the Netfabb Cloud service, but that did not help.

 

I am still getting "WARNING: No top level geometry to render" when I try to do the "Compile and Render (GCAL)" option in OpenSCAD.

 

I am on a Mac using OpenSCAD 2013.03.06 and have also tried the older, released version.

 

Any ideas how I can fix this?

 

Thank you!

Perlguy

OpenSCAD is very picky with it's STL import, and usually fails at it. I haven't found a way to fix it.

Just tried repairing it in desktop Netfabb but got the same result in openscad.

OpenScad is very sensible regarding path- and filenames. Under Win7 this worked for me (double backslash):

File is stored on drive c: root

scale([1,1,1]) {

import("c:\\ipad_mini_Landscape.stl");

}

Hope this helps
