Hello!!! I love it!. One question, what printer did you use?,

I used a prusa i3. Took a little bit of playing around with the model, especially for the letters/katakana but eventually came out better then I expected

Hi wlky,
First of all, great job !
Can you please share with me, how did you fix minion_heart_base.stl model to work with OpenScad ?
Before I found your model, I tried to fix myself, but what ever I do, OpenScad refuse to render it due CGAL Assertion error.
Thank you !

Hey Paxy,
I don't remember 100%, but I think what I did was open the file in 3ds Max and cap all open borders with polygons, or merge the points. This ensures, that the volumes don't have any holes in them. It's been a while though and I haven't done anything else for OpenScad since so.. yeah xP

Hi All!
I really appreciate this model, but I'm not able to open it in "Customizer" since the application gives me the following error:
"Sorry! No Parameters Found."

Do you know how can I fix this issue?
Thank you!

Hey francesco,
yeah unfortunatelly that doesn't work.. Customizer is limited right now and "Cannot import external files (like .stl or .dxf files)"...
But you can edit the text locally with OpenSCAD and change the text there (see instructions of this thing and comment below) :)

Do I have to download any seperate files to change the name on the heart? sorry the instructions confused me a bit. When I opened it on OpenSCAD it already had a write.scad command in it.

Hey, yeah you need to download the file "write.scad" and a font "FONTNAME.dxf" from thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16193), and put them in a subdirectory called "write"


Broken in customizer?

yeah I think customizer is having problems with external libraries and files, which my scad script needs... but what you can do is download the files and customize the minion with OpenSCAD (see Instructions)
