Background

ScorchCAD is an OpenSCAD clone written for Android devices. ScorchCAD executes OpenSCAD code and displays/exports the resulting model. ScorchCAD is a clone of OpenSCAD meaning that it aims to provide the same functions as OpenSCAD but it does not share the same source code. Most of the basic features are currently working. Additional features will be added in future updates. The core Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) functions of ScorchCAD are based on the JavaScript program OpenJSCAD. The CSG functionality from OpenjsCAD was converted to Java for use in ScorchCAD. A completely new interface and ScorchCAD interpretor were written to interpret the OpenSCAD code and display the resulting model on Android devices.

ScorchCAD Features (fully or partially supported)

- 3D shapes: cube, cylinder and sphere
- 3D Boolean operations: union, intersection and difference
- Transformations: translate, rotate, scale, color

Documentation

Use ScorchCAD as you would OpenSCAD. The syntax is the same (for supported functions). To get to the code editor or console windows use the buttons on the bottom of the screen.

In addition You can open STL files using the open button. The OpenSCAD code required to open the selected file will automatically overwrite anything in the editor window. Similarly you can also open DXF files using the open menu.

To inspect the displayed model:
-Rotate the model with one finger using the touch screen
-Pinch to zoom using two fingers
-Use three fingers on the screen to pan left/right, up/down.
