is there any way to extend a vslot

so i could attach multiple lengths of bar together and use a slide that could travel the distance of the whole thing?

odd question I know but any help is appreciated1


You might want to consider making the plastic go in to the V-slot. I believe it would help a lot with stability. Or maybe there's a reason you didn't do that?

Good tip. I didn't consider that as the plan was to use V-slot nuts/screws to secure it.

With what software do you open the .fun ?
Nice job by the way, very usefull for me.

I made them with Cubify Invent. It only costs 49.99.

Do you have a picture of this as it's printing? I wanna see how your support structure is laid out.

I will take a pic of it when I do the next print.
