Is there a point to this slope/bevel?

Err… well, as the title says really. I am assembling the carriage runners and I see they have an internal sloped piece.

Is this for any particular reason? Does it matter which way it goes?

See attached pic.


My guess is that it serves the same function as the extra slope on the topside of the piece. Makes it printable without supports. Just remember to pair them up so that each axis has one of each, and that those slopes point the same direction (left/right or front/back) for both assemblies.

OK. Thanks. Didn’t want to assemble it all and then find out
