Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

Unexpected behavior from rotate_extrude
2 projects | /r/openscad | 29 May 2023
Yep happens here in 2023.03.05, weird - I guess you could lodge a bug and see what happens2 projects | /r/openscad | 29 May 2023
manifold backend is just merged
5 projects | /r/openscad | 18 Mar 2023
1.) Check out the latest github source and follow the build directions: https://github.com/openscad/openscad5 projects | /r/openscad | 18 Mar 2023
Just to share the news that https://github.com/openscad/openscad/pull/4533 is just merged, which uses https://github.com/elalish/manifold for multithreaded rendering. CUDA is not yet enabled but there is already a large speedup over fastcsg. The long standing https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/391 will probably close soon! You can now use multiple cores to do rendering!
I built an online Dactyl Generator, but with fast previews and STL export

https://github.com/elalish/manifold provides fast csg operations (WIP PR for using manifold as backend for OpenSCAD: https://github.com/openscad/openscad/pull/4533) and wasm build (manifoldcad.org).
What is the bottleneck in OpenSCAD rendering?

https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/391 (this issue was opened in 2013, still open)2 projects | /r/openscad | 4 Mar 2023
So OpenSCAD could be sped up of CGAL could be sped up. In the github repository is/was a pull request to do something like that, but the request was not accepted because some of the automated tests did not pass.
For Dactyl Manuform builders using OpenSCAD - huge render speedup with fast-csg

If you catch a performance regression please open an issue! https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues
Is there a way to assign properties to solid objects?
3 projects | /r/openscad | 28 Dec 2022
Sadly, no. There's been a bunch of talk on implementing these functionalities, for various contexts - materials, colors, parts, etc. Sadly, the gist is that those properties won't get through the renderer.
Show HN: Make 3D art in your browser using Lisp and math

There's also ImplicitCAD (https://github.com/Haskell-Things/ImplicitCAD) which produces STLs, as it is designed for CAD. It uses implicit functions, which I believe are similar to SDFs (I believe the idea is not to necessarily correspond to the distance function).

ImplicitCAD is essentially OpenSCAD with bevels.
OpenScad is great, but slow to render.
6 projects | /r/openscad | 15 Apr 2021
You might take a look at ImplicitCAD. It accepts OpenSCAD code (as well as some other more exotic formats) and can render much much faster depending on resolution. There's an online editor/renderer here that would tell you whether it can handle your existing code unmodified.
