Tangible - Python library for parametric 3D visualization

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Tangible - Python library for parametric 3D visualization

Hi all

This might interest some of you. As my student research project thesis in 2013 I created a Python library for 3D design / visualization.

To quote the description from my project page:

 

Tangible is a Python library to convert data into tangible 3D models. It generates code for different backends like OpenSCAD or ImplicitSCAD (not yet implemented). It is inspired by projects like OpenSCAD and d3.js.

The difference from Projects like SolidPython is that Tangible is a modular system with an intermediate representation of objects that is capable of generating code for different backends, not just OpenSCAD. Additionally, its main focus is not general CAD, but printable 3D visualization of data.

Example of a 3D visualization:

So to summarize, this library lets you easily convert data (like time series, for example) to 3D visualizations in the OpenSCAD format, that can in turn be converted to STL.

Project is here: https://github.com/dbrgn/tangible

Docs: http://tangible.readthedocs.org/

Thesis: http://eprints.hsr.ch/351/

Would be great to get some feedback!

Danilo
