      Here are a few C-Beam example actuator builds to hopefully help inspire some build ideas.
      This is by no means all that can be done with C-Beam, this is only scratching the surface of the possibilities and actually these were just a few ideas that we came up with quickly to share.
      You are encouraged to experiment/mix and match and see what combinations of OpenBuilds parts you can come up with to create awesome actuators for your projects.

      TIP: These SketchUp models can easily be placed into your own SketchUp builds by copying and pasting them. You can open two instances of SketchUp at the same time and copy and paste from one to another!
      This makes it very easy to move models around from different saved models.
