Linear bearings ride on linear rail http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1071, driven by belts or leadscrews. A pair of rails and at least a pair of linear bearings are needed to make a complete linear stage. There are three sizes of the linear bearing: 3.5", 2.5" and 1". The part list is for 3.5" size.
Linear bearing is basically half of aluminum rectangular tube, with R3 bearings mounted on 10-24 screws. The tube pieces are made using SVG templates. There is a 1/16" gap between bearings and the base wall. For 1" size, 1.5" square tube is used.
