Image to OpenSCAD converter

Project description

img2scad - Convert images to OpenSCAD contours <>

Default syntax:

img2scad [-m|–minimum=N] < input_file


For each pixel in the input, it will create a cube in the output. The height of the cube corresponds to the whiteness of the corresponding pixel.

If -m or –minimum is specified, all values will be shifted by that value. This can be positive or negative.


img2scad < example.png > example.scad
Convert example.png to example.scad.
img2scad -m 1 < example.png > example.scad
Convert example.png to example.scad, with a “bedrock” of height 1.
