We added a new small product to our product range: sponge rubber rectangular cord 5x5mm for MakerBeam (10x10mm), article number 104454. The rubber cord can be used to create surface protection. Or protection for something else like a tablet, see the tablet stand below.
The cord only barely fits the T-slot of MakerBeam (10x10mm). Part of the rubber will stick out and create a cushioning band.
The sponge rubber can be easily cut into the desired custom lengths. You have to stretch the rubber somewhat to fit the T-slot, see pictures.
The 5x5mm cord will only fit the MakerBeam (10x10mm) like this. We are working to introduce an alternative for MakerBeamXL and OpenBeam shortly.
In this video Simone builds a musical instrument. She combines a number of teeth with a keyboard in order to create music. During the process she uses MakerBeam for a temporary framework to test opening and closing of the teeth.
Andy from Austria made a 3D printer framework based on the items in a MakerBeam Regular Starter Kit (art. no. 100012/100034). You can find some pictures here. Videos of the 3D printing, plotting and milling will be published later. He is also working on a building instruction and a Bill of Materials. Stay tuned for more and enjoy the first pictures!

Andy built a complete
3D-printer-frame out of one “MakerBeam Regular Starter Kit” with just a
few additional screws and parts. The main target of his project is to
construct a low cost 3D-printer/cnc-mill/plotter with easy available
parts. See pictures below.
A new product is available! It is the right angle bracket pictured below. To see the product in our webshop click here or on the picture.
Right angle bracket (b90p12ra) for MakerBeam and OpenBeam
The introduction of a new bracket is a good start for the new year we thought. This right angle bracket is very similar to the 90 degree bracket. It’s right angle shape however gives the opportunity to connect the beams crosswise. And with beams we mean both OpenBeam and MakerBeam beams! This fastener is suited for both. Below are a few more pictures.
Left: right angle bracket. Right: 90 degree brackets
A cross connection of the beams is possible.
A cross connection can be made with both OpenBeam and MakerBeam
The right angle bracket is suited for both OpenBeam and MakerBeam.
Of course we have been tinkering with MakerBeam ourselves. What we noticed is that preparation will speed up the building process. It is so much easier to first prepare some brackets. The next step then becomes real easy. You just slide the beams into place.
