OpenSCAD Error

Recommended Posts

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 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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
