    Hi,
    Had considered the 80/20 5010 beam (50x100mm) beam as a option for stronger x and longer y runs. Are parts from these other sources compatible?

    The slot spacing has to be multiples of 20mm for the other parts to be directly compatible. You will lose support for v-wheels with the likes of 80/20, Bosch, Misumi, and others, as they don't have the same slot profile as v-slot.
