Introducing Camp Six: an Onshape-based frame design and ordering system (seeking beta testers!)
Fellow Onshapers! After months of using this forum's incredible experts to answer countless questions, I hope at last to return the favor. I'm delighted to introduce an Onshape-driven experience to rapidly design and order custom metal frames.
Using our Featurescript collection (still in closed beta), you quickly sketch your frame as a wireframe mesh, and then we compute all the 3D details (e.g. tube coping and joinery). We rapidly make the elements of the frame on our custom CNC plasma/welding machines (it feels like 3D printing, but with steel!). We flat-pack the elements, ship them to you from our warehouse in Santa Cruz, California, and you can assemble it with simple tools.
This is a very nice alternative to 80/20 in many cases (much cheaper, and no measuring/cutting required), especially where the geometry gets non-rectilinear. The whole point of the system is to help engineers and designers build faster.
We're looking for beta testers to try our Featurescript collection to design and order steel frames. DM me or reply here if you're interested, especially if you have a specific application in mind.
