When you make a crosscut sled in the traditional method, you have to tune the back fence. In this version, you use a grid and cut the pockets for the sled rails and both fences, therefore the fences and sled rails are already square (tuned). In my version, I used a t-slot extrusion for the rear fence... and completely forget that my Sawstop sled would trigger the break if it touched the aluminum... that was an expensive lesson to relearn. To cut the rails, I mirrored the SVG and build the grid in the opposite direction to the front. I am not saying this was faster than the traditional method, but it fits together so nicely.
