How to use lasercut t-slots properly in a design? Answered

I am in the process of designing a laser cut 3D Printer with some of my friends. I have never used a laser cutter before. We are trying to use t-slots that are similar to those used on the old makerbots. Does anyone have a suggestion of the lengths of the slots and the frequency (spacing between joints)? Thanks!

Depends on how accurate you are and how much force they hae to handle.
Ususally one on each side of the panel plus one in the centre should be more than enough.
