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.
