Customizer simply will NOT open this file. Shows a script timed out error before I even do anything, then just sits there with the little loading thing going until I close the page. This file also causes SCAD to crash, and I have the latest version AND I'm able to edit other files with it just fine.

Try the new version i uploaded now. It should give a result in a few minutes. At least when you use OpenSCAD on your local PC.

It always says Not Responding for a long time. If it takes more than an Hour though and the word is short (first name only) it shouldn't take longer really. Try a different Font (Impact for example is BOLD and should be on any windows os with word). Edit in notepad or another editor notepad++ first then open in openscad and wait an hour. Hopefully its done in 20-40Mins or less.

Would recommend opening and editing file first in Notepad++ (Notepad etc should also work). Then opening in OpenSCAD to render and build the STL File. And when editing Locally on your PC make sure you've used a Font that's installed on your PC, OpenSCAD has a Font List in the Help Menu.
Good Luck!

Nice work! Thanks for the feedback and picture of the print :)
You can by the way also directly edit in OpenSCAD.

Oh yeah but if it is frozen with an invalid font overnight then gotta use another editor. Also OpenSCAD wanted to render the file on open so editing beforehand will save you time for newcomers ;)

Strange. It doesn't render the file for me when i start up. Maybe check if you use already the latest version of OpenSCAD: 2015.3-2

OpenSCAD-2015.03-2-x86-64-Installer.exe on Windows 7 64 BIT. First Install of openscad. IDK oh well lol.

I use the same.
But I optimized the SCAD file a bit, it is faster now for me. Can you have a try?

Its takes a bit of time to calculate. You can speed it up if you use short words. Or use it with OpenSCAD on your PC.

I get a script run error before I even start on two different Android tablets and two different PC.

I optimized the model a bit, maybe it works better now.

I tried to create one of my own using the customizer, but I got this error message: #<RuntimeError: Failed to get https://www.thingiverse.com/download:4476659 403: Forbidden>

Strange, i also get an error. Its takes a bit of time to calculate. So you can speed it up if you use short words. Or use it with OpenSCAD on your PC.

I tried downloading and installing the latest version of OpenSCAD, it crashes every time I try opening the file.

Hi, try not to use too complex fonts and too long texts. This model is calculation intensive, i optimized a bit, but still. Also try to give more RAM to the geometry engine:
Settings -> extended -> CGAL cache.

My settings:

  • stop rendering: 150000
  • CGAL cache/Poly cache: 104857600

This is Fabulous. Great Work.

Thanks for the feedback!
I hope you can print one and share the picture :)
