Another TEDxGreenville project built at the Synergy Mill Makerspace with MakerPipe! This year we had some new letters, but it was overall the same setup. I did some optimizing on the rack design and we only used 10 connectors! That's 4 fewer than last year. Thanks for making a solid, dependable product that works! And, thank you for supporting Synergy Mill and TEDxGreenville!
Here's some closeups of the Makerpipe frame we made for the lasercutter at Synergy Mill. It keeps people from leaning against it and has a shelf for the computer and monitor. This is the second version where we rearranged the shelf so you don't bump your head when you look into the laser. Makerpipe lets you reconfigure your structure when the design changes so you can improve iterations of your ideas easily.
Synergy Mill Makerspace is the home for many TEDxGreenville projects, including the MakerPipe frame that holds the stage letters. We needed a quick to assemble and disassemble method of mounting the 2 foot tall styrofoam letters. The frame was 4 ft tall, 10 ft long, and used only 14 T connectors. We've built this frame design for the last 3 years and we reuse the connectors for other projects after the TEDx conferences. The biggest challenge is efficiently designing the structures to use the fewest number of connectors!
