BeAM is dedicated to giving its users hands-on experience and building their confidence in creating. This starts with our staff. Our staff members learn by making, meaning each of our staff members is trained to safely use the tools we have in our network of makerspaces. Our students gain experience using 3D printers, Laser Cutters, Vinyl Cutters, Sewing Machines, and Woodshop tools. Once they are proficient in this equipment they then can train others to use it. Part of each staff person’s journey to learn these tools involves making projects that represent BeAM, just like the things in this catalog. We hope you like our current offerings.

|Laser Cut Key Chains||Customized laser etched keychains can be made with your department’s logo, or any other message you would like to include. It is possible to etch images onto the keychains, but flat single-color images such as silhouettes, logos, etc. work best.
|Laser Etched Coaster Sets||Customized laser etched coaster sets can be made with your department’s logo, or any other message you would like to include. It is possible to etch images onto the tiles, but flat single-color images such as silhouettes, logos, etc. work best. Tiles can be produced from wood, clear acrylic, or laser-tiles which look like porcelain with a dark grey/black etched design.
|3D Printed Old Well with Acrylic Base||The old well is the most recognizable icon of UNC. Here we have a 3D printed old well, that sits atop a round base laser cut and etched from white acrylic. The base can have the University’s logo, or can be customized for an additional fee.
|Davie Poplar Pen and Box Set ||This pen and box set are the most distinguished item made at BeAM. The pen is made from wood from the most famous tree in North Carolina, the Davie Poplar. The Davie Poplar is over 300 years old and figures prominently in the history and folklore of UNC. Each pen and box have been produced by the student staff of Beam.
