MakerSlide is an open source aluminum extrusion with a built-in V-rail linear bearing system. The Deltic3D, ORD bot, Freedeepee, CNC Router, etc. all use MakerSlide as part of their drive train.

YesRail, apparently designed for the P2f RepStrap, is a rail system "based on Open Rail and MakerSlide".
