turtle2d


An OpenSCAD implementation of Turtle Graphics. It moves on the xy plane. You can get the cooridinate [x, y] or angle of its current position.

Parameters

  • cmd : A string command. Different commands use different numbers of arguments.
    • "create" : Creates a turtle data. The command needs three arguments x, y and angle. For example, use turtle2d("create", 5, 10, 30) to create a turtle located at [0, 0] with an angle 30 degrees.
    • "x" : Sets or gets the x coordinate of a turtle. If you provide a turtle data and the x coordinate, such as turtle2d("x", turtle, 20), it will sets the x coordinate. Giving a turtle data only will return the x coordinate.
    • "y" : Sets or gets the y coordinate of a turtle. If you provide a turtle data and the y coordinate, such as turtle2d("y", turtle, 20), it will sets the y coordinate. Giving a turtle data only will return the y coordinate.
    • "angle" : Sets or gets the angle of a turtle. If you provide a turtle data and the angle, such as turtle2d("angle", turtle, 45), it will sets the angle. Giving a turtle data only will return the angle.
    • "pt" : Sets or Gets [x, y] of a turtle. If you provide a turtle data and the coordinates, such as turtle2d("pt", turtle, [10, 20]), it will sets the coordinates. Giving a turtle data only will return the coordinates.
    • "forward" : Forwards a turtle. The command needs two arguments. The first one is a turtle data, and the second one is the length. For example, turtle2d("forward", turtle, 100).
    • "turn" : Turns a turtle. The command needs two arguments. The first one is a turtle data, and the second one is the angle. For example, turtle2d("turn", turtle, 180).
