Grid-Beam Construction-Kits

Inspired by Buckminster Fuller, Grid-Beam Construction is a form of DIY backyard engineering and design that sort of took off in the Seventies and might, maybe, possibly make something of a comeback one of these days. It is a lot like a grown-up version of those old fashioned Erector Sets with an IKEA vibe that makes it seem like a possible big-deal in the wake of such things as MAKE magazine and the whole resurgence of the DIY movement.

A system much like the Grid-Beam Construction Kit is at the heart of the Monarchist colony-saucers in Riskail, enabling these groups to disassemble and reassemble various elements of their vessels to establish their base-camps, settlements or proto-towns.

Here are a few links pertaining to Grid-Beam systems that you might find useful.
