We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A 3D-printable variant of BitBeam, this is a parametric Lego Technic-compatible beam. Specify the number of holes, render it to an STL in OpenSCAD, and you're ready to print. Unlike BitBeam, it does not have holes on all sides, just top and bottom.
Open mybeam.scad, scroll to the bottom where you see "beam(15);" Change the number in parentheses to the desired number of holes. Choose Designâ†’Compile and Render, then choose Designâ†’Export as STL; Once that's done, you can print the STL.
