We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
You can prototype almost any kind of robotic platform or experimental laboratory equipment with these connectors.
These connectors will allow the fabrication of almost any shape or enclosure, using the 20x20 mm MakerBean type model from dbozec ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27825 ). Especially desinged to facilitate the construction of experimental laboratory equipment and platforms. The connectors are meant to be glue-"welded" to each other with ABS acetone slurry or cyanomethacrylate (crazy glue).
With these connectors you can do end-end, corner, rail, groove, flat top or plate, sliding surface, T-pieces end to side and side to side connections, wire guides and mounting or fixation parts. You name it...
Inspired by dbozec's 20x20 mm OpenSCAD MakerBeam design.
Printed on UP!3D on "Fine" for connectors and "Fast" for Z scaled (extruded) beams.
These are some 20mm connectors.
You can Scale (extrude) the rails on the Z axis to make them longer.
The fit is snug so use a bit of rod to move the connectors in the grooves.
Parts (Scale any on Z Axis to make different lengths):
Back row Left to right: Flat top; grooved, MakerBeam
( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27825 ); narrow part for overlying grooved surface; Flat sliding surface; Different flat top.
Middle row: End cap; footer, flat beam; corner with hole; corner.
Front: Wire guide; end joiner, end joiner, side to side joiner; base piece; mounting piece.
