Revisited & customizable: universal hose coupler and funnel maker

You are right, but a slider also require a maximum value. And if I specify a "very big" one, it will shrink the useful range to something not user friendly... Also it looks like they only support integers, but I did not double check as I was a bit lazy.
Of course I could try to circumvent this, eg. by adding a log() on the scale, or by using abs() as you suggest for positive numbers, but this will not make the interface more friendly: we would better make it impossible in the first place imho.
And indeed, if the user really wants a negative nut size, I do not even want to try to guess what he means and "pollute" the openscad source code to fix the case... ;)

This is a parametric hose coupler through a webservice. It can create STL files directly for adpators (adapters?) that couple two hoses or pipes. Hey, you can even make funnels with it!
Just provide your own dimensions and get the file!
The customizer lacks a few control on the values imho (eg. how to force a variable to be positive?). Now, it is probably a work in progress that will get better with time, and it is nonetheless extremely useful.
