We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A simpe open scad library to generate pcb stand offs. Three types can be generated
Plain (round or hex)
Retained Nut (round or hex)
A Split Pillar, use a dab of hot glue or adhesive tape to hold it down.
v1.1 - made split_base slightly more printable, added example .STL output
v1.2 - added support for captured nut version
If you want to use this as a library comment out the customiser code at the top.
Due to the fact I have factored the code for the customiser app, the hex variable must be used as text rather than boolean i.e. "true" and "false" in quotemarks
Be carful of your size selection in the split_base, I managed to print a usable 3mm dia post but 5mm might be optimal.

So what's this mean?
We're sure doommeister would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
