This is my laser project that spawned the whole idea for Makerslide. The design has been changed over and tested.
ShapeOko is a successful Kickstarter project that evoled to use Makerslide. I have seen this in action and it is quite impressive for being around $300 ready to go with motors, spindle, drivers...everything including an Arduino to run it via GRBL.
MendellMax is a new extruded aluminum 3D printer. The latest generation uses Makerslide for some of the axes.
This is an example of a super low cost camera slider. This one is 6 feet long. It uses a lot of stock MakerSlide and a few simple extra bits. The whole thing with motor should cost less than $100 as shown. you need to add a motor driver and something to control the driver like a PC or and Arduino.
I don't know much about this project. Someone sent me a link to the video
