Thanks for designing and sharing this!

I printed these and when i installed them, i found these issues.

  1. I assembled the top and the bottom and after snapping the top part of the brace to the frame, when i tried to fit the bottom part, it was not easy. I really had to force it from the outside in to fit the bottom part. According to your instructions, it should go in easy. As far i can see, i have not broke the acrylic frame yet, so there is still some hope of fitting the brace properly :)
  2. Also in the top part, there is a 1mm gap on the inside and almost 2 mm gap on the outside between the brace and the vertical acrylic frame. Can you please see the attached pictures. I guess ideally, there should not be any gap between the brace and the frame, so that the frame is stiff and reduce/eliminate wobble. I have this problem on both the left and right sides. The frame printed perfectly as far as i can see, there is no warp or anything. So i dont know why it doesnt fit snugly.
  3. You have also mentioned that we need to use the extra plates in the bottom part. I am not exactly sure where exactly it goes. Is it on the inside top part of the bottom part, in between the inside and top of the acrylic frame?

I have read all the comments here to see if any of it could help, but i have not been able to find anything that helps Hence, can you kindly help with the above. Thanks!
