i see in the faq that the max height for the z axis when using an MPCNC as a 3dp is about 12 inches, is that an ideal height? or literally the max? I am looking to build a CNC but i really want to be able to use it as a dual CNC/3DP, however im not opposed to only having maybe a 10" z axis if that would be significantly better than 12.
Also, when i put in the z axis at 12 with the dimension calculator it says that my legs should be 11.5 inches tall. That seems a bit too tall for the router to work correctly? maybe not?
I guess what im asking is this:
If i make a CNC/3dp with a usable area of 24/24/12, the dimensions the calculator spits out is 34.4x34.4x19.5, will this work fine for the CNC part, and will the 3dp still be able to print at a reasonably fast speed, say 80-90mm/s along the x/y axis? (thinking of cura where speed settings for infill seem reasonably fast and i get decent prints at 60-90 for me on my anet a8)
