You are quite correct. And if I think about doing it again
I will certainly consider that. But, as I said, the source
I gave Jayesh was one I worked on about a year ago when I
was learning OpenSCAD. I have yet to learn pythonOCC. If
Jayesh's experiment turns out well then I guess I will find
myself motivated to learn it. Do you think I should anyway? - Dan
P.S. - Jayesh: I made a mistake in the times I reported.
In the year since I wrote the dragon curve code I have gotten
into the habit of using f5 (with OpenCSG) rather than f6 (with
CGAL). It is with f5 that it takes 12 to 14 seconds & 1.3GB
of memory to render dragon8192 (with 24576 elements). With f6,
it takes about the same amount of memory but I shot it after
10 minutes. So maybe not that much has changed in the last
year after all.
