Does Carbide 3D carry these extrusions that the Z plate rides on in longer lengths? ApolloCroweThanks Richard for pic.I want to try a few things for fun ( I cant sleep at night)! Thanks Ray
As I understand it, using the proprietary extrusion is one of the ways that the machine is differentiated from the competition, and lengths are not available separate from complete machines/kits.
Not quite as convenient, but back before the custom extrusions such as those for the SO3, and Makerslide which it is based on were available folks would use steel V-rails bolted to standard extrusion profiles:
