OneUp V2 SIDEBRACE Redesign
For those who have been reading my OneUp V2 Build Log, you will remember I did a post discussing a redesigned SIDEBRACE piece for the OneUp V2.

The SIDEBRACE piece, as designed by Q3D, is flawed.  In an attempt to remove "dead weight," the part is designed with a very narrow section that breaks.

My redesign is a little bulky, but makes for a much more durable part.

I am still not 100% positive on the end tab dimensions.  That may need tweaked once people start playing with it "out in the field."

The attached ZIP file contains four files: 1) A DXF file (CAD drawing file) that can be converted to GCODE for a laser cutter to laser cut the part out of wood or melamime.  Material thickness is believed to be 6 mm.  2) An OpenSCAD file, which imports/extrudes the DXF file to 6 mm for 3D printing of the part.  3) The STL file generated by OpenSCAD.  4) A README file with some information in it.

I am still trying to get my OneUp functional at the time of this writing, so I am not looking to tear it back down to replace the 3D-printed SIDEBRACE pieces (old design - see the rest of my build log for more details) I am currently using.  Maybe after I get up and running, I will print the redesigned piece for comparison to my one good (original) SIDEBRACE piece.

If you end up tweaking the redesign further, post your updates as a reply to this thread.  That way, we will have all the design changes in one place, making the latest-and-greatest version easy to find.
