Mini picture frame from the 3D printer

Idea

For smaller pictures, photos, etc. you often need a matching picture frame to the photo, the drawing etc. As a 3D printer owner, it should make sense to use CAD software to design your own picture frame and then print it out on your 3D printer.
Furthermore, the CAD design process can be a good exercise for improving your CAD-Software-Skills.  In our example, an already existing picture frame made of wood in the small rectangular  format approx. 140 x 140mm is used as a template:

For the latter requirement, I finally arrived at the attachment to the ventilation slot, in which case, in particular, the stable design and solid print of the attachment is important.
