The cat is looking exited.... ;)

I used meshmixer to cut out just the joiners, and I stood them upright for easier printing. I tried to tag your post here, but do to the license you chose i couldn't categorize it as a remix. Found here for anyone that wants them:

Upright Joiners for Cat Tent
by dtfiori

Having a hard time successfully printing the Joiners file on my mk3. Should I be using supports?

hello.. i can use this with a 600mm x 600mm square? beacause i have one acrlic whit those dimensiion

I guess it depends on how flexible the material is that you used to print the frames with. If they’re flexible enough to bend to 600x600 size then it may work. PLA can be quite brittle though...

Great thing!
Can You add stl files with separated parts?

I cut away some of the parts if this helps:

Upright Joiners for Cat Tent

This is another great idea and my cat loves it but just a suggestion... make a version with the struts printed in 3 shorter sections (with 2 connectors) instead of just two long ones and more people might be able to print this, right now it takes a good size build platform to be able to print the long struts. Thanks for another cool project though.

Simple and elegant. Did you try to use stiff filament directly instead of printing the arms ?
