Putting a dimensioning component into OpenScad.
Im looking for a dimensioning tool that can be used in a 2d and 3d drawing. The ones I have tested do a job, however most have limited details on use and the text is impossible to enlarge, from what I can see. Also geometric drawing symbols would be great as well.
Does anyone know if this is being investigated, worked on or already done?
Auto 2d ISO Drawing cabability would be great too(from a 3d model)

Design of a desktop uAtx computer case on Openscad

by Watcher_

I have a old uAtx motherboard and decided to design a desktop case for it (horizontal mount) . Maybe mount it under my desk as well.
There are plenty of customizable designs available but unfortunately my Prusa cant print a big enough box for this motherboard so am thinking to print it in two pieces.
Can anyone sugest a good solid way to mechanically join two pieces together. That will peobably be the base as well as the cover of the box.
Any examples would also help :)
