Corners for structural tubing

Corner inserts are one possibility for the Power Cube and for connecting tubular steel members. They would make better use of space that is currently used with the "layering" of tubes in current designs.

Mention was made that adding corners would weaken the overall design, but this has not been proven. A structural analysis would be necessary to find out for sure.
