[OpenSCAD] STL without render?

Can you share some image that shows your model in detail?

In OpenSCAD there are fast and slow alternatives to produce a design. If you
stack too many primitives on top of each other, use boolean operations over
too much detail (number of vertices) or special high-level operators like
minkowski() and hull(), rendering gets slow. And it gets even slower, when
you try to clone complex shapes into more complex structures like grids.

There are also ways to create complex shapes by doing most of triagulation
work on your own. So it depends much on the programming approach you use and
of course on the complexity of the design itself.
