OpenSCAD images do not match my model

Recommended Posts

Posted · OpenSCAD images do not match my model

It is very nice that you are making renderings from OpenSCAD files uploaded. However I wonder what version of OpenSCAD you are using, because it doesn't match my model. Compare what I see:

with what your software rendered, below. Colors don't translate, OK; but I see the screw heads are missing. Also, the cylinders modelling the caps and toroid on the PCB have the wrong (much too small) diameter. The cylindrical screw bosses in the case top & bottom are completely gone. I am using OpenSCAD version 2014.10.02 (beta) but this file also renders properly in OpenScad version 2014.03 .

With CGAL compile and reender I only get the yellow and greeen colour. Colours are not working with this option (that has to be used before exporting STL files). Correct me when I am wrong.

Colors would be nice to have, but it is secondary. The more important problem is that most of the cylinders were rendered incorrectly, or not at all.

Thanks for noticing. Colors indeed will be more complicated, as they are lost during CSG calculations. Renderings are made based on the STL that is automatically created by executing OpenSCAD command-line.

I indeed see some missing cylinders. The tops of bolts are missing, but also the capacitors (I'm guessing).

I found out it's using a pretty ancient OpenSCAD (version 2012.05.26), which I could upgrade. What's the name of your model. I'd love to repeat rendering it with the old version and then upgrade and then compare the two.
