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.
