A salute to our dealers - OpenBeam applications in the wild

One of the really cool things about designing and manufacturing a really cool construction kit, is that even when you are completely slammed with logistics and day-to-day business operations and building your organization, people are still doing very cool things with it. As many of you now know, Solarbotics signed up as our first (and to date, only) Canadian dealer. But what you may not know is that Solarbotics also uses OpenBeam for some of their production tooling and fixtures. See these videos here:

OpenBeam Screw Counting machine. I am probably going to need to build a couple of these…

Less well known is that we have a dealer down under in New Zealand. Bert from Protoneer is a great guy, and he's been promoting the design of an OpenBeam Mendel 3D Printer. We are working hard to get a OpenBeam Mendel 3D printer extrusion kit going. In the meantime, check out the OpenBeam Mendel on Thingiverse, and check out the video below!
