Knurled surface finishing library

In this case the self-replicating polyhedron is intended to give a mechanical touch to your freshly (or not) designed cylindrical surfaces. Hmmmm... you can also thing that those things all-around the cylinder are diamonds and use it for jewelry.

Well, I guess I could :)
There's a lot of "dimensions" here: Diameters, lengths, tolerances, for bolt, nut, knurls and also the dimension for the knurl's pattern...
You'll find them all into "knurledFinishExamples.scad", there's no need to know anything about OpenSCAD, it's just a text file and all the dimensions are easy to find.
Hope it helps!
