Printing light structures

A month ago, I designed a light frame structure which I could post tension and use to replace much of the steel in a next generation Reprap printer.

I think it's pretty obvious where this is going.  

Do you want to read more?

please print 9 at a time
( 3 X 3 )

I don't really gain anything doing that except if something goes wrong I screw up nine modules instead of one.

Mind, I can do multiples with Slice and Dice. It's no big trick.
No biggie but, not being a native speaker, Im just slightly confused by the terms pre-stressed and post-tensioned. Before or after what process is intended here?
