You can make the model solid or hollow to save filament or resin. You can insert as many sloped blocks as you like. Just keep the list in square brackets separated with commas.
If you will use just one angle of 0° (angles = ), than the result will be plain box. Negative angles and angle sizes above 90° are recalculated to fit between 0 and 90°. Type angle 90° to make a bridge instead of slope.
Manual text adjustment is required and model have to be checked visualy prior to exporting as my programming skill in OpenSCAD is not good enough to check all the dependences. Sorry for inconvenience.
You are using this model at your own risk. Whenever you are experimenting with print quality, do not keep the printer unattended. Keep in mind that model created with this
parametric tool may not be printable.

This parametric model is usefull to test your printer slopes, outer dimensions accuracy, moire and other issues.
If you don't want to customize anything there are already uploaded 3 basic STL files with the most usefull models but for fine tuning would be better to create your own.
- Published V1.03 Camera still broken. Now Customizer is drawing solid, but not shells.
- Published V1.02 with ASCII encoding and without chars for degrees, that works in customizer too. Still it have some troubles with certain views so you may have to change the direction of camera and Solid mode is not working.
- Published V1.00, but for some strange reason the SCAD file is working in OpenSCAD but not in Customizer. Looking for a solution.
Normally I would do something like ten different models in Autocad or Rhino for a fraction of time, but today I decided to do just one but parametric so I can also check how Customizer is working. It is nothing special. Just overdesigned slope generator with precise outer dimensions to test my new LCD SLA printer, especially exposure times and shrinkage.
It took me a day to learn basics of OpenSCAD required for this project, but was totaly worth it as it gave me a brand new perspective how to design stuff and how complicated is the math behind 3D drawing. Just keep in ming it is my first OpenSCAD project, so rather don't study the code.
The source projects served mostly as an inspiration of what may be tested beacause my favourite test model for last 8 years with FDM machines was still the plain 20x20x10mm box :D.
