## Overview

OpenSCAD is **Open** source software for creating **S**olid 3D **CAD** objects. While not the primary focus, closed 2D shapes can also be created.

## Where to Get It

Links to downloadable binaries and source repositories can be found under the **Download Releases** section of the main OpenSCAD web page.

### RTFM

When in doubt, check the manual: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSCAD_User_Manual
