The 3 piece buttons are made up using two washers and a spacer that are assembled using a pan head screw when installing then on your rocket.

The easiest way to explain it is that It's basically a railbutton in kit form.

The one piece buttons are injection molded so no assembly is required. They also have a recessed screw, so they will be more aerodynamic.
Either one will do the job of guiding your rocket up the rail, so it's more of a choice convenience or style as to which you choose to use.

Durability and Price.

Nylon has been around for a very long time and because of that, it is a thermoplastic that is less expensive. Nylon is very good and will be more than adequate for most applications, but Delrin is more durable in the long run.

Delrin is a brand name for Actel thermoplastic. It has qualities that make it well suited for use in our hobby. It is very durable, but it is also more expensive.

Mini-Buttons use a 20mm rail and Micro-Buttons use a 10mm or a 15mm Makerbeam rail.

Not all 20mm rails are made to the same specs. I've been told that some of the off brand rails will not work with the mini buttons.

They were made to only be used with the 80/20 extrusion and is available direct from them, https://8020.net/20-2020.html

or through distributors like Grainger, Fastenel, Zoro, and McMaster. Shipping is always the killer if you don't have a local source.

The cost to ship 10 rails is usually only slightly more than it is to ship one.

See if your local club needs  any additional rails or others near you in order to do a group purchase to help save money spent on shipping.

Micro rails can be purchased through Amazon. They only sell them in packages of 2 for 10mm and 4 for the 15mm.

One issue I've heard about is that Amazon's packaging is simply awful and they will sometimes arrive bent.

If you receive them bent, send them back and order again. I've heard from a few that it took 2 or 3 orders to get good and straight rails.

This tends to be a bigger issue with 10mm than the 15mm rails.

Here is a link to the 10mm rails: 10mm Makerbeam

The 15mm rail is called the Makerbeam XL. It is relatively new and it is considerably stronger than the 10mm.
