Can you really build a squirrel this accurately ... with only 18 distinct pieces (plus rotating joints for movement)?

Yes! Accurate design with a small number of piece types is one of our distinctives. Check out our latest design: Squirrel (available in two levels).

Attention #STEM club leaders and teachers: Take a peek into one of our Team Build events! Crossbeams Team Builds form a fun group activity while simulating real-world engineering projects. Working together to build a larger model by individually assembling its components, participants learn teamwork, helping the slow, positive feedback, individual importance, and create a well-engineered end-product everyone can be proud of. 12 students, 8 of them beginners, gather together at Colorado Springs' +Pikes Peak Library District - Library 21c on a rainy summer day to build this 950-piece Horse in half the time it takes a single expert builder.

"Making Crossbeams a reality wasn’t easy, particularly with a full-time job and family.  First, I had to enhance my knowledge. During late nights and early mornings, I taught myself mechanics, gear design, and machining.  I studied the limitations of current building systems and identified enhancements."
