OpenSCAD is software for creating solid 3D CAD models. The program focuses on accuracy and control of 3D modelling, ideal for 3D models of machine parts. The program functions like a 3D-compiler, reading a script file that describes the object and renders the 3D model.

The program works via constructive solid geometry (CSG) and extrusion of 2D outlines, via Autocad DXF files. In addition to 2D paths for extrusion, it is also possible to read design parameters from DXF files. The program can also read and create 3D models in the STL and OFF file formats.

Note: this program is not natively portable. However, it can be made portable with a yaP config.
