A Feedhorn? No, an ESP

The center mount has a single 'stovepipe' that allows me to attach a pole for the feedhorn. This is the other end.

It's designed to hold an ESP-01 module so that the antenna is directly in the center of the dish.

$fn = 64;

module esp8266(){
    
 union(){   
     translate([0,-4,-2])   
     cube([14.7,25,11], center=true);   
     
     translate([0,-12.5,6])   
     cube([12,8,12], center=true);
 }   
}

module pole(){
 
 translate([27, 0, -21])   
 cylinder(d=6.40, h=30);   
    
}

module holder(){
   difference(){ 
        hull(){
            translate([32,0,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=10);
                
            translate([32,5,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=10);   
               
            translate([32,-5,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=10);  
            
            translate([10,10,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=5);
            
            translate([-10,10,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=5);
            
            translate([-10,-20,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=5);
            
            translate([10,-20,0])
            cylinder(d=4, h=5);     
        }
        
        esp8266();
        pole();
        
    }
}


holder();
