Well I didn't fully design it in openscad. I designed the hexagonal
components, and the interlocking aspects in openscad so it's fully
parametric. The actual art for the top of each tile and such was done on a
blank hex base in sketchup, and then imported in openscad to be added to the
overall base and parametric parts.
So several of the source parts were done in sketchup, with an overall
wrapper in openscad to process them into usable pieces based on parametric
settings, and spit it out in finished sheets ready for printing.
I'll probably do my lasercut settlers set in openscad as well, with just the
2D tile artwork being imported as external DXF files.
I'll give you a heads up next time I'm coming in for a meeting (Which I hope
is soon) and bring the stuff with me.
