I really didn't expect this to work

This little pair of gates for my cattle dock was pushing the Anycubic photon but I thought it was worth a punt even though I thought it unlikely that it would come out. I'm rather happy with the result, particularly as I needed 3 pairs which were identical. I wasn't exactly looking forward to having to make 3 out of scrap etch and wire and that would definitely have taken more than the hour these took to print.

In place they look like they would have kept the cows in.

I had the fact that there was a water trough in the corner pointed out to me on the Scalefour forum so I need to build one of those now.

Not being anything of an expert on cattle dock gates but, like ledged and braced doors, shouldn't the diagonals be the other way up?

Possibly, best raise it with the G.E.R. !

I had a funny feeling you were working from a prototype.

They've obviously hung them upside down!

They're in steel, so I doubt it matters. In wood, a tenon joint is far stronger in compression than it is in tension.

I had a chance to spray a coat of paint of the fencing and I think it pulls it all together nicely.
