Crossbeams is an advanced building system for makers. Connections withstand 20 pounds of force. Pieces connect in 8 orientations, maximizing creativity and minimizing piece types. 10 angle and arc beams follow the lines of real-world objects, enhancing accuracy. You can download our free modeling software, virtually build, and share designs with the community. The Crossbeams Introductory Assortment, featured here, is perfect for your first Crossbeams kit. It comes with an optimum selection of 354 pieces to build more than 20 good-looking beginner-level models. Build a 2.5-foot-wingspan jet airliner, a 3.5-foot-long suspension bridge, and a working grabber. Average builders take more than 40 hours to build all the Introductory Assortment models. How’s that for massive play value? Once you’ve mastered the Introductory Assortment, check our website for intermediate- and advanced-level assortments. Crossbeams is made in the U.S.A.
