I saw that after I made my post.. so I gave it a whirl and it did work but I some how still ended up with a 2020 piece even though I typed in 30. oh well. the bracket worked for testing I guess. was too thick too Thanks for the reply
though I still am seeing a difference in what I "make" in openscad vs what imports into my slicer. like if I make it look like I want, and hit the stl button on openscad, it still outputs all the pieces even though I'm looking at just 1 of the straight pieces
