The camera slider is available in different lengths. They are identical except for the MakerSlide and the belt. The travel is about 175 mm less than the length of the rail, but see note below.

Note 1: Either the 8 mm button head or the 10 mm cap screw can be used to hold the belt anchor. The head of the 10 mm cap screw, used with three washers, also serves as an end stop. It stops the carriage just short of the end of the rail. If you need the extra few millimeters of travel, use the 8 mm long screw with a single washer, which clears the carriage and allows it to travel about 145 mm less than the length of the rail (855 mm instead of 825 mm). Without stops, however, you have to be careful not to run the carriage off the rail, to avoid damaging the V-wheels.
