Day 9: Funnel, Parametric

Parametric OpenSCAD Funnel
Thanks to MakerBlock's great tutorials http://blog.makerbot.com/?s=OpenSCAD+Basics, I am able to make things in OpenSCAD easily. I easily figured out the parametric stuff just by looking at some other OpenSCAD designs. Now I am making parametric designs.
I was going to upload a funnel I made inspired by the Foo Funnel http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1234 designed to be bigger and carry more stuff through it, but then I thought, why not whip up a parametric funnel? So here it is.
The script naturally makes it in most printable format and centers it. I just turned it upside down for the picture.
- Mess with parameters.
- Export your customized one and print.4. Now you don't need to go all the way to the store to get a funnel. The default paramters create a funnel nearly identical to one I found at the store.
