More pictures and a Bill of Materials. Build your own fanless PC with help of this info. Think – Build – Enjoy
Tinkerforge it’s RED Brick is great with MakerBeam. RED bricks will spark your imagination. These bricks offer you easy functionality in sensors and electronics.
With MakerBeam you can create the perfect framework to match your idea.
Here is an introduction of RED bricks by Tinkerforge on CeBIT. Enjoy!
the simplified use of makerteam+tinkerforge equipment makes it possible for me to build an easy weatherstation cube.
Inside power for 6 hours, red brick+2master bricks and some sensors:
– ambient light
– uv light
Especially the last sensor (co2) makes fun in meetings.
Next step is an traffic light for “bad air”
Greetings and thanks for creativity environment!

A customer sent us these pictures. Wim mentioned the following in his mail: “Recently I built a PC ‘Case’ with MakerBeam for a completely fanless PC. Attached are some pictures you can use for your website (if you want to). I mainly used 200mm beams, a fanless ATX power, a mITX board and a fanless CPU Cooler. The MakerBeam frame will be paneled with plexiglas covers (top already done in pictures). MakerBeam was great for this project, light weight products, extremely solid, flexible in design and no machines needed.”
Circular Knitic is a completely open source and open design circular knitting machine that is produced by using digital fabrication tools, and thus, allows to be replicated by everyone, who has access to a 3d printing and laser cutting. By using digital fabrication and makers’ tools, like 3D printing, laser cutting, MakerBeam, and Arduino, we have designed an automated and replicable circular knitting machine.
You can move video and photo-cameras on a slider to make attractive recordings. Moving time-lapse recordings with a DSLR or arbitrary video-camera movements are the main applications of the kit. The kit can also be used for completely different purposes where linear motion is needed (see end of the video below).
Max his tools: clamps and a hack saw.
So I ordered another lot from chartup.com and when this lot arrived they were the new version where the centre holes goes all the way through. Excellent! I cut them to length using clamps and a hacksaw in my kitchen. Then tapped the threads using an M3 tap, a power drill and some bicycle chain oil. It all worked perfectly so it is possible without proper tools 🙂

Thank you Max!
We would like to share with you a work-in-progress, but still an inspiring project: creating a PCB and component holder, which is designed to make soldering easier.
The project is running in the hands of Mark Swinhoe, and he shared with us a little background about it.
“This little tool was inspired by how expensive professional PCB holders are, and how they immediately reminded me of MakerBeam. The holder allows you to angle the component, and use the mounting holes to keep it in place.
The vertical beams can be easily loosened for different width of components and the PCB standoffs slide up-and-down the vertical beams for height adjustments. If you need more space from the vertical bars, then you can add another set of standoffs on top of the existing ones, or just attach longer standoffs. The components are held really well with MakerBeam, and it has a very solid base.” – (by Mark Swinhoe)
Mark, thanks for sharing it with us. We wish you more fun with it and a successful result. We hope, that we can see your robot running-around soon.
