MakerSL MSL-5 Cantilevered 3D Printer
This is a simple cantilevered 3D Printer. It is designed around the OB V-Slot linear rails. I am trying to simplify this as much as possible, all rails will be 250mm long and only one will require cutting (it will be cut in half). The printer will use all OB wheels and gantry plates where applicable, all other plates can be either Laser Cut or 3D Printed (files will be provided for both). I am not set on electronic as of yet, but plan to use a single control board...no Arduino/Ramps control.

CNC FOR EVERYONE!
This build was very complex due to the fact I wanted to create a low cost larger than normal CNC. I did not want a MDF or plastic body. I wanted it to be able to do more than most CNC routers this size on the market.

Cnc Mill using standard and 3d printed cimponents
I used the cad designs for the c beam to find a solution to my initial sourcing problem. I figured that I could use 2x 20x20 and 1x 20x80 Profil to create a c beam actuator. I sourced all of the profiles from a local machin builder and t-nuts and screws in my local hardware store. Some parts are currently in 3d printed pla for testing reasons.

Ball Trajectory Machine
Need to build a machine that accurately positions objects for processing by a computer vision algorithm? Here is an example of a machine that does that for a ball trajectory application. The black anodized V-rails work well for applications in optics and imaging where the machine needs to stay out of the limelight.
