Parametric Printable Meccano

Here a link to a parametric meccano model.

If you know really little about OpenSCAD you can easily configure this file to make meccano-like pieces.
I modeled it because i need often to whip up a mechanical prototype, for hackatons, demo or just playing around :)
At the moment there are the plain piece, the 90° and 45° bent pieces and the C shaped piece, like in the image.
