Question #: 14190

Question: Is the machining on the ends of these rails good enough to allow them to be aligned to build longer tracks? https://buildyourcnc.com/item/mechanical-rails-linear-guide-rails-20mm

Current Solution

Absolutely. You can create a machine as long as reasonable to carry electric signals to the gantry. The mechanical parts, like the rails and motion transmission are less of a factor. One exception is lead screw will not be able to extend very far, but if you use roller chain or rack and pinion, you will have no problem making very long machines.

Additional Information:
We also put the rails mentioned end to end without any issues.
