<label xml:space="preserve">The depth (Z-Axis) and other parameters can be defined through an svg object's description. The menu 'Object-&gt;Object Properties ...' (Shift-Ctrl-O) shows details of one selected object.
If an object's ID is in either name_XXX_mm or name_XXXmm
format, then XXX is translated into zsize in millimeters.
Use . or _ as separator for a decimal number.
Note that all whitespace or comma are saved as '_' in ID.
<label appearance="header">Syntax for the object property description</label>
<label xml:space="preserve">Depth: 10 mm
Linear extrusion length (or Z-Size)) of the object.
Antimatter: true
Object is part of the difference set, which is
cut away from all other objects.
Offset: 4.5 mm
Move an object upwards to create a balcony (or window).
Taper: 90 % or Taper: 120,60 %
Scale the object along its Z-axis. The bottom surface always
is as drawn, but the top surface is scaled to this value.
If two values are given (separated by Komma), different
scaling applies along X- and Y-axis.
Parameters in the objects take precedence over groups.</label>

This extension converts Inkscape paths to extruded polygons in OpenSCAD. Before using, some objects must firat be converted to paths with the "Path &gt; Object to Path" menu item.
Inkscape's units of pixels are converted to millimeters using the SVG standard's definition of 96 px = 1 inch = 25.4 mm. (Before inkscape 0.92 the standard was 90 px per inch, Adobe products often use 75 px per inch)
