I've been building a model steam engine using CAMBAM for some of the parts.  Here's the latest, the most comples thus far with CB:

I used holding tabs for the first time on this part.  Works well!

Nice Job on the part!   8)

The corners were probably not done that way for relief, although square inside corners do crack easier than rounded inside corners.  The way he did it is the only way to get a square corner using a round cutter.  Rectangle parts will not fit in a hole cut with a round end mill.  The relief is a good by-product. :)
