Python in OpenSCAD

Want to use a stronger language in OpenSCAD? That possibility may not be far off.

I’ve got a basic proof of concept working, and I took the code from here and made a 3d representation of Pascal’s triangle. I’m sure this wouldn’t be too hard in .scad script but I think it was easier in Python. Not just because Python is easy to use, but also because it has a strong user base of folks who like to share code with each other.

For the adventurous (and foolhardy), you can pull from my pyscad code branch. It is VERY rough and the API isn’t fully ironed out, but we could certainly use help polishing it off. Tom started a channel (#pyscad) on FreeNode to discuss development if anyone wants to join in.
