I am completely new to robotics and engineering and it looks as though I have stumbled at the first hurdle when building a prototype.
I am trying to build a curved track upon which a motorised carriage can run. I know that I need a stepper motor and a cog, however for the tracks I can't find anything similar to the picture below:
The youtube video is as follows: Lumia 640XL mach3 step motor curve motion
There is a slight difference in that I need straight sections and 90-degree bends for the tracks, rather than a circle.
Does anyone know what these sections are called, as "tracks" and "runners" doesn't yield anything.
