Thanks to everyone who responded to my message. Realizing that with any
rp process on a thin walled part you are gonna have some warpage, I did
some things to help the process. The section profile was a "U" shape,
and the ends were open. Because of the warpage they didn't match up.
However, I added a small "webbing" of material at the end sections to
eliminate the problem. That, along with a few settings toggled, we ended
up with a good quality part. I was able to add other parts to it for a
real assembly. Hope this may help anyone else out there who is having
some problems w/ rp parts warping. Thanks again!
