V-Slot® 20x20 Linear Rail
V-Slot® Linear Rail
V-Slot Linear Rail is the ultimate solution combining both linear motion and a modular, structural framing system. It's lightweight yet rigid and provides an ultra smooth track for precise motion.
In 2013, OpenBuilds created V-Slot Linear Rail and has added a library of compatible modular Parts which today is known as the OpenBuilds System. Over 1,000,000 feet of V-Slot has been shipped to businesses, classrooms, laboratories and makers all over the world!
Much like working with lumber, you can cut V-Slot on a chop saw (using a metal blade) or even use a hacksaw. From there, you simply use a screw driver to make the connections.

I've been using VRail from Openbuilds for several years now, it has formed the basis for many projects and machines. Not only do I enjoy and appreciate the unique profile (works great with wheels), the quality and consistency from part to part has been outstanding. Everything they ship is ultra straight, clean and ready to cut and use. There's no way I could have achieved as much with ordinary 8020 products. Thanks Openbuilds!
I got this rail with a kit to make an Ox CNC. I liked it so much I decided to use it for a custom PC case I am making. I plan to buy more for a 3D printer. It is strong and easy to cut. I use a miter saw with a blade for aluminum. It takes marks from a carpenters pencil well.
Great quality for the price; simple yet effective design. I would also recommend the Mini V Gantry Set as a complementary product.
