Yes. The way it currently works is:
- run OpenSCAD and adjust settings — when you save a preset, that saves them to a JSON file
- run a LuaLaTeX/METAPOST file which imports the settings from the JSON file — the creates a PDF (currently) which has the geometry for cutting out the box as shown above — note that I haven’t made this available yet — it would require installing MikTeX, and I’m not sure I’m going to stick with it.
- open the PDFs in Inkscape, save out as an SVG
- import SVG into Carbide Create and assign toolpaths
Worst case is I’ll do that for folks and put the files up on Cutrocket or the wiki or something — I’ll put the lualatex file up somewhere as well, but it’s a bit involved to get MikTeX running, and it doesn’t make for that nice an interface. METAPOST, which is the graphical programming tool I’m using can write out SVGs directly, but running it directly is even odder.
I’m hoping that what I can work up is a program (say a LiveCode file) which opens OpenSCAD and works as an external editor (it’ll probably change the JSON file) — adjust that until you get the settings you want (I want to use a separate program from OpenSCAD so that things such as changing dimensions will work properly and one can do data validation and so forth) — once you’re satisfied with the preview of the design in OpenSCAD one could then write out a Carbide Create file complete with toolpaths.
Or, maybe we can get the OpenSCAD files hosted at Libre3D so that they’re interactive, and the site runs lualatex in the background so that it makes an SVG — still working out the details based on how much money comes in.
