C-Beam Machine Mechanical Bundle

Here at OpenBuilds, we understand the need for you to have the power to create custom plates for your builds 
because we have the same need as well.

 
 
'How many times have you been working on a design only to find that 'off the shelf’ plates
are not going to work without some type of modification or customization?
Wouldn't you like to be able to create beautiful, custom plates that are specifically made for your build? 
Because really in the middle of a build, who has the time to wait for custom plates to be made? 
Not to mention the super high prices machine shops want to charge for their minimum orders. 
If you’re like us, when you’re building, you want your prototype your plates right away.'
 
  
So, in order to solve this problem the OpenBuilds Team set out to create
an inexpensive plate making machine
which uses all stock OpenBuilds Parts and is super easy to build.

We call it the C-Beam Machine!

'It’s not just a machine, it’s a solution'

C-Beam Machine is a CNC machine design based on the popular V-Slot linear guide system.
The machine is strong as the linear rail incorporates a C shape profile which gives added strength and functionality.

 

 

Now, you have complete control over your builds from start to finish!

 
  • OPEN SOURCE  - The C-Beam machine is Open Source and the Builder community is encourged to modify and build on this design. 
  • EASY TO BUILD - With the V-Slot Modular Framing System and OpenBuilds 'Build a Long Videos', assembly is quick and easy.
  • AFFORDABLE -     OpenBuilds budget friendly parts allow Builders the opportunity to freely create.
  • CUSTOMIZABLE -  Take it to the next level and make it your own! Share your builds with the Open Source Builders community OpenBuilds.com
