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
4 projects | /r/ErgoMechKeyboards | 12 Mar 2023
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?
2 projects | /r/openscad | 4 Mar 2023
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.

curv seems to have cad/slicer integration in mind as a long term goal, using f-rep to generate infill as well as the shape itself.
