Yes. Yes, this is all coming back to me now. I tried it and was equally frustrated with how it bowes out the door frame columns.

Sigh.

That was my experience with the door frame too. Seems like in designing it DF forgot that CBS is on a 2" grid and dungeons are on a 25mm grid. Gridgate never ends!

I just tried out using the frame from the double doors and the fit is really bad I have to say.
I had to really cram the CBS piece in and it was bending the supports outwards. So I do like my free standing approach, he says in a self congratulatory way. I wonder if I could use magnets?

Thanks for all the kudos guys.

Although the super awesome thing about your mod is that it is completely freestanding, so you can drop it anywhere and even on a diagonal, up on elevation, etc.

Oh Nuts, you are absolutely right. Too bad Dwarven Forge never has anything in stock, I get 4.

It's an awesome mod and maybe I'm misunderstanding the problem / aim, but don't we already have a DoD piece that accepts CBS walls?

Nice work. Kind-of glad I have the opposite problem. ;)
So few DoD pieces, I'm thinking of ways to get rid of the columns. :lol:
