I have been using Lightyear 1.1 for awhile and we have not had any problems
cleaning up the platforms. How are the curtain supports attached to the
platform? I don't think they are that different. We have built some heavy
and large parts with great success. The biggest problem I see are that the
supports do not reach the end of the rectangle and leave it unsupported.
That is corrected by going into custom support.
