STL to OpenSCAD converter
by Riham, published
The best thing about this is that instead of just embedding your stl files in the OpenSCAD you can actually make them part of it, which means they can be used with Customizer.
*********THIS IS A BETA VERSION - I wrote it after a long day at work when I needed such a tool and didn't find one:)
Please report all bugs to me, or just feel free to fix the bugs yourself, the JSFiddle is available publicly, you can fork it and make any changes *******
*********This was tested only on Chrome - several people have left comments saying it doesn't work on other browsers, unfortunately I haven't had a chance to make it work on other browsers, but you can use the standalone version provided by fma at thingiverse.com/thing:64709 *******

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong. it did download a file as "FromSTL" but causes openscad to crash when I try to open it, so I tried open with notepad and that crashed as well, I used Chrome on windows 7
Sorry about that, I haven't tested it on IE, but there is also a standalone version (see remixes) that might be easier to use.
