Track Extrusion

Track extrusions are the primary structural component of the tracks sub-assembly. They can be combined end-to-end in order to create longer tracks. The gantry v-wheels roll along the track extrusions, allowing FarmBot to move in the x-direction.

Gantry Column

The gantry columns are made from aluminum extrusions. They can be scaled to be taller or shorter to satisfy your needs. The two large spaces inside the columns are used to conceal and protect the GT2 timing belts that run along the tracks and up to the gantry pulleys.
