I am planning to convert an old couch table with a 130cm x 70cm glass-top into a ZenXY v2 table.
Currently, I am in the ordering/sourcing phase and would like to get it most of the things right in my first attempt. This is why I would like to get some recommendations from folks, who already built this great table. The questions mainly concern the box that contains the mechanics and electronics.
How much space should be planned in between the sand-plate and the glass-plate on top?
What is an acceptable thickness for the sand plate so that the magnet is still able to pull the ball?
With how much elevation should LED light-strips be mounted in order to get good lighting for the whole working area?
It would be great if you would share your build know-how/experience!
