I don't know if it is on your end, or the thingiverse website has some issues right now. But I am recieving this error in the Customizer: /usr/local/bin/openscad/openscad: error while loading shared libraries: libCGAL.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I want to use your generator to get a 46mm filter thread and match it onto a MFT mount to have reverse macro setup.

Not me; it looks like Thingiverse is missing a rendering library for OpenSCAD.

If you download the .scad file, it's pretty obvious what the parameters are in the code at the top of the file... so you can edit that and render an STL using OpenSCAD on your local machine.

I figured that too. I edited the parameter for major size to 460 and exported the STL from OpenSCAD. It printed out really well and did screw on... But somehow didn't hold good enough.

I have to tweak it a little more. But I can just only print the one half of this filter, it takes around 40 minutes with my resolution and print speed.

I will report back once I managed to merge the MFT mount and he filter thread.

Wow, that's slow! I spit these things out in under 10 minutes on my M2. (Usually print at between 120-200mm/s.)

Anyway, reducing tol (the tolerance) should help make it a tighter fit.
