[OpenSCAD] Using OpenSCAD to drive milling

I've been importing .stl s into fusion 360 and making them into bodies, a
little awkward but any cam software will be able to take the .stls. Fusion
has the advantage of being free for hobbiesists and is a very high skill
ceiling CAD system in it's own right.

I recommend picking up fusion immediately and getting at least passable
with it, there are so many times when an openscad program would be overkill
for what you need, and having your CAD and CAM in the same program has some
serious value.
