such an image for routing, milling or laser work. I hesitate to say it 
would be simple only for the fact I would certainly not find it simple, 
but others could find it easier? Certainly, if possible, it could 
release a lot more of OpenSCAD goodness into these other worlds (eg via 

It would also be handy for documentation and trial fit purposes.
