Information on tools, and techniques for building
On twitter I noticed someone struggling with OpenSCAD to create nose cone shapes when it occurred to me that I had a macro. I’d originally developed mine in OpenSCAD but quickly moved to FreeCAD and finalized development there. Sadly I have no idea what became of my OpenSCAD original.
It does have some FreeCAD specific stuff, but it’s written in Python so should be usable in other contexts. So it’s time to share.

I am not an affiliate for any of these vendors. Feel free to shop around. There are also many tools by other manufacturers that will achieve the same result, but these are what I use.
