My first thing with OpenSCAD. I needed a simple pedestal for Alexander the Great http://www.thingiverse.com/derivative:50368 This one is 40mm, but if you edit some numbers in de scad-file, it's easy to scale somewhat. Just open the scad-file in a text-editor and have a look!
I cut a 3mm hole through the middle since I glued Alexander to a short piece of filament.
Some great and easy to read OpenSCAD tutorials: http://www.makerbot.com/blog/2012/11/08/openscad-design-tips/
Easy enough to print. There's some (invisible) overhang on the inside, but it should not be a problem. I made a little cutout at the bottom so it's easier to wriggle the print off the bed with the tip of a screwdriver.
I noticed the print isn't completely level on the table, the inner cylinder in the middle sticks out and should be sanded down a bit. Design could be altered somewhat, maybe lift the middle cylinder so it doesn't touch the table at all.
