Omron Q5MC2 .stl files

I was amazed to discover that there isn’t a .stl or .step file for the Omron Q5MC2 inductive sensor so I decided to create my own.

Along with that, I created a test gauge as the behaviour of the sensor seemed strange until I read the datasheet and discovered that you need at least 8mm from the centre of the sensor in all directions.

I have so many similar sensors here in a box I use to test stuff. I much prefer the round threaded metal-bodied prox’s or eyes 8 or 12mm but the sensing distance is way smaller for them, around 1.5mm
