2021-10-13 (W) EWC_Panel Footprint adapter

I don't know if I can use the laser cutter at my hackspace or need more training. For now, I'll assume that I can't, but I have my 3D printer and some essential woodworking tools. One thing to avoid when working with electronic components and wood is to stay away from square holes. One of my small screens, for example, has four mounting screws and a rectangular viewing hole. I made the footprint a while ago, so I decided to make an OpenSCAD program that would take those footprints and make me a flanged box to screw that down to a piece of wood. Since the print will cover any unsightly holes, I can drill out a wire passage, and it will look clean. This method would also work if I mounted to metal. I haven't made any provisions for multiple devices in a single box.
