TL;DR Our aim is to sell Grid Kits by the end of this year.
Hello and welcome to our first newsletter, thanks for tuning in! This update covers some of what we’ve been doing the past 18 months and what we’re working on now.
Check out our progress below 🌱
A quick refresh on the bigger picture: we’re extending the public domain modular construction system called Grid Beam ( #gridbeam ) and calling it Grid Kit ( #gridkit ) - as we believe it’s much more than beams. The open source Grid Kit system is metric and includes beams, panels, fasteners and a library of compatible add-on components (hinges, wheels etc). We’ve chosen a base unit size of 40mm which is compatible with existing t-slot framing and standard panel sizes. The Grid Kit website will offer 3D design software to help create, share and discover Grid Kit designs, while also letting you purchase components from a local supplier. Our long term goal is for Grid Kit to become a platform that makes modular construction easy, fun and most importantly, affordable.
