UberBlox Modular System Lets You Make 3D Printers, Robots and More: Makerstorms

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 3, 2015


UberBlox Systems has designed the industrial equivalent of LEGO Mindstorms. Uberblox lets you make machines such as 3D printers, CNC mills and robots using modular parts and controllers that are based on Arduino or Raspberry Pi.

The magic of UberBlox lies in its aluminum nodes, bars and connectors. Like LEGO pieces, these allow you to make structures with a variety of shapes, sizes and parts. You don’t need to weld or use adhesive on these pieces; all you need is to screw them to each other.

Not only does this system make construction simple, it also makes it insanely flexible. You can easily break down and reuse your UberBlox parts for another project. The same goes with the Brain Box controllers.

Much like Mindstorms, UberBlox will also have specialized parts that are required for popular machines. In this case UberBlox will launch with heads and BrainBoxes that will let you make CNC machines, 3D printers and laser cutters or engravers. But you’ll be able to add off-the-shelf parts as well using nodes. UberBlox Systems says it will also release the 3D files of its connectors and bars for further customization. Just keep in mind that if you print or modify the company’s nodes and connectors you can use those modded parts only for non-commercial purposes.

Pledge at least $99 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive an UberBlox kit as a reward. Be sure to inspect the reward tiers carefully to see which kit is the best for you.
