What do you need these round places for?

They keep the edges sticking to the bed to prevent warping. Had some issues previously when printing those with ABS.
You can cut them away after printing, or just slice the first .2mm off before converting to gcode.

Hi BJoe I have an 8mm acrylic frame, I don't suppose you would have one of those hanging around anywhere would you :-) I printed the 10 and the 6 and they came out great I must say, perfect design man!!

Hey Lestere1, Thx!
someone recently remixed it for an 8mm Frame, here's it:

Hey BJoe thanks very much for the heads up, I'm printing it now :-) have a great day.

Nice Work!

What do you use to desing your Modells?

Thanks. I use Inventor most of the time

Also gonna use that now cause 3ds Max somehow isnt the best for Modells that need to be accurate in terms of size ;D

Thanks ! :D

Unfortunately I have a 10mm wood frame I3, Is it possible have an appropriate stl fort my printer? Thank a lot!

Nice truss design and even nicer FEM analysis! Thanks for sharing.
