Resistor Lead Forming Tool, Thing #26025, by dnewman

No more guess work when bending resistor leads! Eight models are supplied, to cover the working set of metric/imperial, narrow/wide, and long/short resistor permutations, and each model accurately bends leads to at least nine different standard lengths for perf- and breadboard hole spacings.

    Uhh, parametric models are almost inevitably NOT going to be OpenSCAD. Basically no one uses OpenSCAD in industry. The Parasolid kernel is the most widely used, but Autodesk Inventor and Pro/E both have their own parametric model kernels as well.

      Sorta depends on where you take your sample, doesn’t it? Go look around Thingiverse and see how many .x_t and .x_b files you find versus how many .scad.
