Museum Exhibit Design Toolkit: An Erector Set for Grownups

Here's a quick one to explore:

80/20 Inc. is a company that sells aluminum T-slotted framing that they call "The Industrial Erector Set."

And just like an erector set, the 80/20 pieces let you quickly put together 3-D realizations of your exhibit designs. Since the T-slotted framing sections assemble quickly, changes are much easier to make than welded frames, so the system is also great for playing around with physical prototypes.

Check out the 80/20 website for images of project examples!
