Oh boy, now you have no excuse for not building that robot! Nothing is easier or faster than building with extrusion and we've added dual-20mm square aluminum extrusion and components to our catalog. This product is the extrusion itself. Made of aluminum, its exactly 40x20mm and has slots on all four sides. You can use T-nuts that slide into the slots to connect plates, couplers, PCBs, cut-outs, etc. Its sort of like a big-sized Erector set.
We like the 40x20mm for being slim yet incredibly strong. Great for sturdy DIY projects and robots, but not too clunky and heavy. Each piece here is 610mm long (2 feet), and is easily cut down with a hacksaw or bandsaw. Grab some T-nuts, screws and plates to build a frame, then finish off with end-caps.
