3D model description


  • Edit 2021/01/24:
    • I removes all my scripts because now i use the plugin from this thing:,
    • But the thing is no longer maintained this is the reason why i forked it from a more recent version,
    • My version of the plugin is paths2openscad


  • The plugin from paths2openscad is an Inkscape plugin,
  • When installed:
    • Select the shapes you want to export,
    • Go to menu "Extensions / Generate from path / paths to OpenSCAD..."


  • From github repository paths2openscad:
    • Copy files and paths2openscad.inx to inkscape extensions folder,
    • On linux this is ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/

Generated names

  • The plugin generates openSCAD modules from selected shapes,
  • The modules are names poly_{shape-ID} (),
  • Then you can control the module name in Inkscape:
    • Contextual menu on the shape / Object properties,
    • Change shape ID as you want,
    • Better change label with the same value to have a consistent display,
    • Button Apply.
  • 3D file format: SCAD
