I've written about the process of putting this together over at the Ponoko blog. Check it out:

As long as your printer has a stepper-based extruder, you should be able to print them upsidedown sans support using the "cool" plugin in skeinforge. But on my MK4 Cupcake they turned out like this: :)
How the heck...
See, I've got one of these exactly. And when i learned about 3D printing I reaized I could get a real fix to this problem, so I modeled them myself (except I flipped them upside down so that they'd print without support but have a flat top). But not having a 3D printer I kinda forgot about it, put
them away, and proceeded to get into 3D printing, making more complex models for a printer I still don't have and uploading them to this very site.
Then on an image search to find an image of my Wingman Rumblepad for XPadder today I run into these images taking me to a corner of this site I frequ
ent! The heck, man. Why didn't I search before modeling.
(Tho, I still think flipping them upside down so they can print without support may work better.

However, the SCAD source has some options that you can change:
HOLLOW_POST (default true)
Set to false if you'll drill your own after printing.
THUMB_DEPRESSION (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to be flat.
ROUNDED_EDGE (default true)
Set to false if you prefer the head of the stick to not have a rounded edge.
NUMBER_OF_STICKS (default 2)
Output 1 or 2 sticks for export as STL.
I got the best results when I used ReplicatorG/Skeinforge to flip the model standing up (like a "T") with support materials underneath. It was a pain to clean, but the other way was really blobby on the post.
