My latest Project…PBC linear GST rail/car

PBC Rail Mount

I have recently been working on designing the parts needed to build a Linear Actuator out of just the PBC GST rail and slide.

Here you see the original idea I had came up with. I ended up tossing this design but you get the idea. The drive screw is a 5/16th threaded rod from Lowes, for like 10$ if I recall. This helps keep the overall price down, which is the goal here..that and AMAZINGLY PRECISE PRINTS.

Moving on, I eventually got a rough design done that worked well during prototyping. I’m really excited about this design because I think it might work better then even my Open X/Y designs.

So here is the design I have been testing and getting great results. Couple more tweaks here n there and I think it will be ready to move to the next phase..PRINTING.

Thanks for checking this out and stay tuned for more, this month is going to be a fun one. 🙂 -papabur
