Hex Nut Capture Socket sizing for 3D Printing

So, to get the best hex nut capture socket fit, I wrote a parametric OpenSCAD script to produce a simple 3d printable test part to fit a configured screw size. Any screw size with either a hex head or a round head can be configured to produce the calibration test part for 3d printing. I’ve made the OpenSCAD file compatible with the Thingiverse Customizer so that the custom STL files can be produced on-line instead of using the OpenSCAD program.
