Stefan from ConstrAct in Austria sent us a new MakerBeam project: a GoPro slider. For the frame 600mm MakerBeam (10x10mm) was used. The linear slide, also 600mm, was attached on top. It is driven by Arduino Nano with some additional parts from his 3D printer and CNC mill.
Below is a small video that shows the slider in action.
MakerBeam is also very useful to temporarily fix your car window. Anton sent us some pictures to show his improvised window using a MakerBeam frame. He was on the road for the ‘Modell-Hobby-Spiel’-fair in Leipzig where he represented MakerBeam.de (Chartup.com), see picture.
While travelling for this fair he had his car broken into. The car window on the right side was smashed. He made a MakerBeam frame to fill the window space. One side was taped, on the other side some type of glass was put in. The result: he could still make use of his side view mirror.
Alisa sent us this picture above. A coffee table with LEDs inside. MakerBeam black anodised was used to build it’s frame. This coffee table makes for a great eyecatcher.
Below are two pictures showing the build in progress. Plus there is a small clip demonstrating the lights (double click the video).
Stefan Gschroefl from ConstrAct sent us a few pictures from his rotating MakerBeam cube. It looks great.
The rotation platform is custom 3D printed and runs slow. The rotation platform is powered by battery or external power source. It can be used for other things since the cubeholder itself is magnetic mounted.
@ChrisS833 made a new homelab rack and upgraded his Unifi network. Here are some pictures.
It is official. MakerBeam is available in a brick and mortar store #Rotterdam. Yeah!! @metaalwinkel @topclamp #Utrecht and #Amsterdam to come.
We made an overview for you with the specifications of our three beams put together. We believe this will be helpful in your choice what beam to use for your project.
Below is the picture and here is a link to a PDF-file.
Timothy sent us a blog post with all the details of his project. In his project he uses MakerBeam to combine arduino and 8×8 Neopixel matrices by Adafruit. In his blog post, Art, Electrons and Computation, you can read more about his MakerBeam project. Also he added some great pictures that show his building process.

Below you can find some more pictures of his project.
Update: @Raffaello86 travelled around with Panther. Raffaello and his Powerful Autonomous eNTity High-End Robot were present at MakerFaire Tokyo in August and there was a poster presentation of PANTHER closer to our home. In September the GPU Technology Conference was held (GTCEU16) in Amsterdam. Close to Raffaelo’s home he presented Panther at MakerFaire Rome where he met met Grant Imahar (Mythbusters).

We received great pictures through Twitter (@makerbeam) about a really nice robotics project from @Raffaello86.
