  • Online OpenSCAD Editor

    Models is now more than a collection of templates (OpenSCAD scripts) with an online customizer that works reliably. Now, Models includes an online IDE. This initial beta release of the IDE includes syntax highlighting, essential command completion, the ability to save scripts to the model's cloud or location, and testing your scripts with the customizer.

    It fully supports external modules, fonts, and files in a ZIP file uploaded to your workspace and then published with your model.

    The editor uses Microsoft Monaco under the covers, which is keystroke compatible with VSCode. We have a full OpenSCAD linter under development, and the next release of the editor will be available after the first of the year.

    Using the online editor, I will release a free set of OpenSCAD tutorials hosted on the MakeWithTech video channel. Nothing to install. Nothing to configure for creators who want to publish model templates to our site.

    Please take a look and let me know what you think. Then, click on the pencil icon from the main menu to start a script from scratch, or click on the pencil on a model card on the search screen to see the model in the editor.


    P.S. As always, I look forward to any feedback.‚Äč
