NanoBeam: helping makers build the smallest things

$27,242

440

NanoBeam is a miniature construction set for building tiny structures, robots or frames. It is similar to larger systems like 8020 and MicroRAX but is sooo much smaller. I have been working hard on this for months-making prototypes, testing parts and negotiating with suppliers. I already commissioned the die required to mass produce this product. I want to bring NanoBeam to the world! The first production run has a minimum order that must be met so I’m crowdsourcing funds to pay for that order.

When you make a pledge you get some NanoBeam as a reward for less than the expected retail price and the satisfaction that you helped start a new small business. NanoBeam is here to stay! I have a website, NanoBeam.us, where I will continue to sell this product sell a growing line of accessories and post free files for 3d printable accessories.

Rewards!

NanoBeams are cut to 300mm lengths and come with some hardware to get you started.

add $4 for international shipping

Risks and challenges

Products can have delays due to many things but most of those hurdles show up in the design phase. I come with production ready samples and hard tooling made. Any problems here on out should be very minor. If the delivery schedule is impacted I will communicate how and for how long, like any responsible project manager would.
