It's like Lego, but cheaper! Our new range of extrusion is fully compatible with OpenBuild's popular V-Slot® standard, and makes it super easy to build 3D printers and CNC machines of all shapes and sizes.
What is V-Slot?
V-Slot is a high-quality aluminium linear rail profile with an extremely smooth v-groove on all four sides. It's precise, easy, and allows you unlimited design control through its modular nature.
V-Slot is compatible with a wide range of readily available off-the-shelf parts. We are carrying brackets, plates, nuts, bolts, wheels - basically, anything and everything you'd need to put together a printer!
How does it work?
Building with V-Slot is much like working with lumber. You can cut it with a chop saw and the rest is as simple as turning a screwdriver to make the connections.
V-Slot's building characteristics are much like traditional T-Slot, but V-Slot goes on to add new levels of functionality through its internal v-grooves that allow for smooth linear motion. This brings your projects to life!
V-Slot is a new concept in building. Professionals, hobbyists and kit makers are sure to love it!
What can be made with V-Slot?
V-Slot's strength is its modularity - you will find that V-Slot is perfect for most projects. Below is a list of a few ideas to get you started - you are the creator, so have fun with it!
