Customizable Measuring Cylinder

This measuring cylinder can be used to display multiple unit systems at once, it is fully customizable.I preconfigured Metric, Imperial and US volume units, although I’m not quite sure I used the right ones for US and Imperial. For US I used teaspoon, tablespoon, fluid ounce, gill and cup for the ticks, for Imperial I used fluid dram, fluid ounce and gill. For Metric I put the ticks at 5ml, 10ml, 50ml and 100ml. This can be easily changed by adjusting the arrays describing each measurement system, the first element in each array is for the first system, the second for the second, etc.I printed them with 0.3mm, this works fine. If you want to use them for fluids you should make sure to print them waterproof. Transparent filament would make more sense, but I did not have one handy.Edit: I found a workaround for the Customizer bug, labels will now be correctly generated. Names of the units can now be entered as a string separated by commas.”
