Processing VS OpenSCAD?


To those who know OpenSCAD: is it as esay to use Processing to generate 3d models algorithmically and export them as .STL files? which libraries would you recommend for such purpose? Also, I really like OpenSCAD but its rendering is often terribly slow. Is Processing (in Java or JS) more efficient?

Thank you in advance.

Hi @amundsen,

For 3d related and geometry processing libraries, take a look at the libraries section on the Processing website:

For the rendering performance it depends how many objects you have in the scene and how you are drawing them…

Thanks @josephh. I have checked the libraries but I am first and foremost seeking some opinion, possibly from anyone who has used both Processing and OpenSCAD for 3D modelling.
