I call this piece "A Triptych of Progress":

LOL I call this piece "there must be a better way, this is stupid, surely you haven't backed yourself into that deep of a corner, you need to order connectors and drive to Portland anyway why don't you think on it over the weekend and see if the situation has gotten that desperate"

Can't you...just flatten it?

Right now? No.

Could I have 'em poke out the other way? Prolly. Can I make it smaller? Not really.

see I don't really have room for screws because I have the master valves back there and they'll penetrate.

And frankly the thing is too big to print flat because my bed isn't that big. Print it at a 45 degree angle so the labels don't look like ass? Well you just gained 41% more length lol.

And this is why I design, then think about it, then go "that's not going to work" and reconsider. Somewhere I have my wire carriers as gothic arches... those didn't print worth a shit. Prolly took 4 iterations to end up with what I did. The ECM schema is on Version 3.
