3.6 Braille in OpenSCAD

Table of Contents

OpenSCAD is a programming language used to create 3D objects. Anyone who has already gained experience with a programming language will be comfortable using it. There are numerous libraries in OpenSCAD that can be used for your own projects. These include, for example, libraries for writing braille. The library “Braille 3D text creator” exports the function label(), which can be used to write any braille text. The size ratios can be adjusted via parameters as required.

For example, the command label(“text”) creates the following object:

OpenSCAD programming window shows a label with braille.

The 3D object can then be exported and used for other purposes. There are many other libraries for similar purposes that can be found, for example, on Thingiverse or GitHub.
