i'm trying to "cut" threads in openSCAD. i'm using the threads.scad
module i found on thingiverse, like so:
gosh, is it *slow*! i played a game of freecell and the progress meter
hasn't budged from "just started". and now i've finished typing this
email and still no progress.
i put cylinders in the code to check for positioning and depth; once i
got those right, i commented out ONLY the first cylinder and inserted
just the code for the one thread above. my res time (F6) was 45sec; now
it could be hours. from *one* thread - and i have four to gen before
i'm sure the lack of progress is due to threads.scad creating a
bazillion polygons. i'm not trying to complain; i'm just trying to get
my stuff printed.
is there any alternative to threads.scad?
