    When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.... So I have a C Beam XL and now all my solutions seem to flow from plate making.. lol. In an attempt to eliminate the need for the 3D printed parts from this design I am trying to use plates for the joints. Here is a few pictures of my latest attempts:

    Keep in mind that these are being designed for 80/20 (not V-Slot) and that they are prototypes, therefore I wont be uploading any 3D files or drawings until I've made them an confirmed they fit. The geometry made to slot into the 80/20 will need to be filed to fit but I wanted to attempt to get some extra mechanical support for the verticals without adding any more plates.

    I look forward to your feedback!
