@socalledunitedstates @syndikalista
oddly, it's the www subdomain thats causing the problem (and which Mastodon seems to automatically add). If you type in openstructures.net and just go there it works.

@thinkMoult @lazykat @syndikalista IIRC, it's not difficult at all. If you're cutting something or drilling holes, might as well make those cuts and holes match up with the grid. Then it's just reusing existing modules when you can (which just makes things easier) and making it easy to disassemble (which is good practice anyway)

@socalledunitedstates FYI. Certificate error on that server. "This server could not prove that it is www.openstructures.net; its security certificate is from *.accountservergroup.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection."

@socalledunitedstates that looks interesting, do they have some manufacturers offering the most complex parts at a reasonable cost? Some pieces looks hard to make without a bit of equipment

@Antot They said at one point that they planned to have mass production for some modules, but as far as I've heard that hasn't happened yet. Though since it's all theoretically anyone could start doing that
