Basic Design and Assembly Concepts

Though there are many potential uses of the MiniTec Framing System, there are a few simple concepts that should be followed when designing and assembling things made with it.

1.  Create profile intersections onto a vertically oriented section of profile.

2.  Support butt joints with a vertically oriented profile section.

3. Profiles can be joined together using screws

4.  Avoid situations where a section of profile may be inadequately supported.

5.  When a stronger joint is needed, use an angle bracket below to provide additional strength.  For even more strength, use a second angle bracket above.

6.  When cutting aluminum profiles, a square cut ensures that a frame goes together as designed quickly and easily.
