This post explains how to install OpenSCAD in Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and Arch Linux. OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models and it is a free software available for Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X. Unlike most free software to create 3D models (such as Blender), it does not concentrate on the artistic aspects of 3D modeling, but in aspects of CAD.

So it may be the application you are looking for when you are planning to create 3D models of machine parts, but it is certainly not what you are looking for when you are most interested in creating movies. In this article, see how to install OpenSCAD in Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and Arch Linux.

OpenSCAD provides two main modeling techniques: First, there is a constructive solid geometry (also known as CSG) and secondly, there is 2D contour extrusion. As data exchange format for this 2D describes the Autocad DXF files are used.
