This is simple footwear for makerbeam well euh beams
It is in openscad so u can change the parameters.

There are simple version en versions that are a bit overdesign but both work fine.

O there also a experimental corner piece it is a bit hard to print because of the overhangs

for more info on makerbeam see http://www.makerbeam.eu/ and no i am not working for them ;-)


Wel just print and put it on on your makerbeams
If it does not fit open Foot.scad and change the value
makeSpace = 0.15 into something lager :-)

If you need more then 4 feet then change

nrOfFeetX = 2;
nrOfFeetY = 2;

Cool. If you define a module 'corner' for the corner part, and apply this code, it might be easier to print. This orients the open ends upward at an angle, then chops the corner off to make it flat. I found the angle by eyeball (didn't bother with trig), but it's very close:

translate([0,0,totBeamWidth/3]) rotate([0,-55,0]) rotate([0,0,45]) corner();
translate([0,0,-2totBeamWidth]) cube(4totBeamWidth,center=true);

Thnx for the tip will try it :)
