# Running

The jscad project picam3 uses gulp to create a dist/picam3.jscad file and watches your source for changes. You can drag the dist/picam3.jscad directory into the drop area on openjscad.org (opens new window). Make sure you check Auto Reload and any time you save, gulp creates the dist/picam3.jscad file, and your model should refresh.

# start

npm start or npm run start will launch gulp, and create dist/picam3.jscad . It also watches for file changes and recreates the dist file.

# clean

Deletes the dist directory when you run npm run clean.

# inject

Run gulp to combine the source files and inject the dependent libraries with npm run inject. Libraries are found using a gulp plugin that looks for a jscad.json file in a package. These files are combined and minimized before injecting into the dist file.

# build

Build the vuepress (opens new window) static site by running npm run build. This script combines the readme with a vue-openjscad (opens new window) component to display a live view of the model. The baseUrl (opens new window) is set with the BASEPATH environment variable. It defaults to /picam3/. When hosted on GitLab (opens new window), the .gitlab-ci.yml CICD file uses this script to publish to GitLab Pages (opens new window).

See the vue-openjscad (opens new window) package for information on modifying options like the grid or initial camera position.

# serve

Run vuepress (opens new window) in dev mode with npm run serve. This script watches for file changes and hot reloads changes made to the README file. Changes to the model are not automatically reloaded; a manual reload is required.

# jscad-utils

The example project uses jscad-utils (opens new window). These utilities are a set of utilities that make object creation and alignment easier. To remove it, npm uninstall --save jscad-utils, and remove the util.init(CSG); line in picam3.jscad.

# Other libraries

You can search NPM (opens new window) for other jscad libraries. Installing them with NPM and running gulp should create a dist/picam3.jscad will all dependencies injected into the file.

For example, to load a RaspberryPi jscad library (opens new window) and show a Raspberry Pi Model B, install jscad-raspberrypi using npm install --save jscad-raspberrypi. Then return a combined BPlus group from the main() function.

main() {

  return RaspberryPi.BPlus().combine();

# OpenJSCAD.org

If you publish the dist/picam3.jscad file, you can open it directly in openjscad.org (opens new window) by using the following URL:

http://openjscad.org/# + the url to your file.

# Gist

You can save your file to a GitHub gist (opens new window) and append the URL to the raw gist.

For example http://openjscad.org/#https://gist.githubusercontent.com/johnwebbcole/43f2ef58532a204c694e5ada16888ecd/raw/d0972463f70222e6d4c6c6196a1c759bb3e2362a/snap.jscad (opens new window)

# Gitlab Snippet

If you save to a gitlab public snippet, you can open it using the following URL:

https://openjscad.org/#https://gitlab.com/snippets/1795323/raw.jscad (opens new window)

Make sure you change the snippet id to the correct value and add .jscad at the end.
