True, but with minor modifications to the code, or writing out meta-code to a
file with a macro (as I have done with SVG), you can at least use OpenSCAD
https://www.openscad.org/ to do the 3D printing.

It's true - even many of us die-hard SDL-writers would love to have a modeler to
supplement the workflow.  AFAIK, POV-Ray now owns the rights to Moray, and
someone has the code somewhere....
