Using OpenSCAD to drive milling

I've done this in a number of ways:

 - export to an STL from OpenSCAD, use a 3D CAM tool such as MeshCAM or
pyCAM
 - Project and flatten a design and export a DXF and use a CAM tool which
will import a DXF such as Carbide Create or MakerCAM:

 - match up an OpenSCAD file with an existing CNC generator such as:

 - capture the parameters of a file and then write a METAPOST program to
redraw it: https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Design_into_3D:_box:_fitted

Working on capturing the parameters and then having a Tool Path Language
(tplang.org) file make G-Code.
