This video sums up openscad as an object design tool really well -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uVCD7_j-L8
This is an updated article on all of the open source parametric cad tools out there -- https://learn.cadhub.xyz/blog/curated-code-cad/
I'm particularly interested in:
* CadQuery (Python library for building parametric 3D CAD models) https://cadquery.readthedocs.io/en/latest/intro.html* SolidPython (OpenScad code generator) https://solidpython.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
Codehub.xyz is in community hub for 3d makers and aims to make community development workflow for cad to be similar to software development workflow i.e. having diffs, PR request, gitsts for 3d models.
