In this project, we'll show you how to use a supported slide rail and 3d printed parts to make a portable slider.

Our 19" (500mm) slide rail is made of stainless steel features plenty of mounting holes that can support up to 5 pounds. The sliding ball-bearing platform slides smoothly along the railing.

These 3d printed feet slide onto the ends and secured into place with machine screws. This keeps the sliding platform from coming off the railing.
