From our supplier of all things 3Dprinted (3D end caps and micro stepper brackets) or lasercut (stepper bracket flat) Pieter Bos we received a video with his own creation: a plotter. Have fun watching!
Music with MakerBeam. Zach made an electronic music instrument and used MakerBeam. Find out more about his Electronic Hurdy Gurdy Loch Lomond.
Zach Capalbo shared this with us through Twitter (@makerbeam) on April 22, 2016. Thanks for sharing this MakerBeam project!!! You can hear the Hurdy Gurdy play in the video.
On his website you will find more information about the hurdy gurdy being build. And what a hurdy gurdy is… 😉
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.”
We changed to a new webshop. The blog featured on our website will have all the latest news. This blog will be updated with customer projects and other news items.
Looking forward to keep you updated and communicate with you through these channels.
p.s. This blog was edited on August 12th, 2016. We expected we could no longer make use of it after we stopped using our old website. No updates were posted. Since it is still circulating we reconsidered and started updating again.
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).
