# Roller Coaster Gantries
Parametric, low-complexity fabrication linear axis designs using ubiquitous hardware.
At the CBA, we make a lot of our own tools. These are shared design elements and ideas that we use when we're spinning up custom machines: they're parametric, aim to be reconfigurable, and we can make them in the lab with a minimum set of stock hardware.
The goal is to provide a set of components from which most other automation equipment can be composed.
## Usage
This README should help you figure out how to build your own. A typical machine-wide workflow is described [for machineweek, at this link](https://gitlab.cba.mit.edu/jakeread/machineweek-2018).
This repo contains the CAD files, BOMs and Drawings that you'll want to peruse.
