Laird's Customizable Measuring Cup
by laird, published
And now it's Customizable, making it even easier for you to make exactly the measuring cup of your heart's desire. Or at least, exactly the amount of coffee for your perfect cup of coffee. Or the volume of your brain, etc.
Note: the measuring cup is flipped upside down so that you can see the text in Customizer. Flip it over so that the bottom of the cup is on the print bed to print.
** Now with super built-plate preview goodness!

I found that if you go to Customizer and change the print size, it might raise the letters off the bottom of the bowl. Then the letters won't print correctly. If you change the code for the two write commands then it should work OK.
I suggest a change to the translate portion and to the scale portion. The translate portion should keep things so that the lettering stays on the base as the thickness changes. The scale portion should actually scale the thickness. The original code didn't scale the thickness of the lettering.
The first write command could have the code changed to:
rotate([180,0,90]) translate([0,0,-print/2+.01]) scale([x,x,print]) write(label, center=true, rotate=90, font=Font);
I had to add the +.01 on the translate so that it would push all of the lettering through the bottom of the base. Usually only half of the letters would come through without it. Strange.
The second write command could have the code changed to:
translate([0,0,wall]) rotate([0,0,90]) translate([0,0,print/2]) scale([x,x,print]) write(label, center=true, rotate=90, font=Font);

Set one of the units (cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, mL) and leave the others at zero.
Set the label as you like.
Set the text scaling so your label looks good. 0.3 is small, 1.0 is big.
Set the wall thickness. 1mm is fine for measuring, 5mm if you like a chunky feel.
Set the text depth, if you like the dramatic look. Default should be fine.
