Description

How I printed:

In CURA
1 turn off enable retraction option
2 Fill density 100%
3 print speed 45 (mm/s)
4 print temperature 180

My printer is RepRap from the MOST Athena Printer http://www.appropedia.org/Athena_Build_Overview

I use PLA red 1.75mm ( the real diameter is 1.94 mm)

How I create:

I download the bird image from https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/ae/04/71/ae0471d53045c767e89caaee65ae0d2f.jpg.

I use Inkscape to convert 2D cat image to generate path to openSCAD.

I use openSCAD to design light switch plate with Key Racks. I open cat.SCAD file in openSCAD and then copied all the code and pasted them into my light switch plate with Key Racks.

I use Inkscape to convert 2D image to generate path to openSCAD.

The problem is installing the software.
My laptop is Mac.
I downloaded the Inkscape software from https://inkscape.org/en/learn/books/

I need to download XQuartz software from https://www.xquartz.org/

To use the function OpenSCAD converter from Inkscape, I need to add these two files into Inkscape extension folder from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25036

In Mac, these files are hidden. I need to use terminal to find these files and then move them to Inkscape folder by using these commands.

mv paths2openscad.py ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/

mv paths2openscad.inx ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/
