OpenBuilds V-Slot™ Modular Framing System
V-Slot's building characteristics are much like traditional T-Slot but V-Slot then goes on to add new levels of functionality through it's internal v grooves that allow for linear motion.
V-Slot is compatible with readily available, off the shelf, T-Slot components!
OpenBuilds™ Parts are now available in many easy to use and share formats!
Including STEP / IGES / SolidWorks / SketchUp Please see the OpenBuilds Parts Resource section here to grab'em. http://www.openbuilds.com/resources/categories/openbuilds-parts.5/
Thank you and all the best with your builds!
Building with V-Slot is much like working with lumber.
You can cut it with a chop saw, and simply just bolt together using a screwdriver. And it is compatible with readily available T-Slot components.
"V-Slot can be used for most projects, such as 3D printers, CNC engravers, laser cutters, camera sliders, robotics and furniture. It could increase functionality of your design and drive down the cost of projects as well as the assembly time."
