In this build we will put together a quick easy to assemble belt driven linear guide.
If you are interested in purchasing the V-Slot™ Linear Actuator Bundle (Belt Driven) Bundle please click here.
This linear actuator is modular, so there are may ways to build this version and they can be expanded to create large machines.
Please see example models for ideas
Note* This build could have also be done using the Mini V Plate and Mini V Wheels as well as the new V-Slot Gantry Plate - 20mm version for a smaller gantry system. Instead of the larger Universal Gantry Plate.
In fact anytime you are mounting the gantry to the 20mm side of any size V-Slot the Mini V and the V-Slot gantry plate (20mm) can work as the gantry plate.
