I’m planning the mpcnc primo right now, and I want to have a Z-axis of 200mm. I plan to build a flip table with the machine in a box with a lid.
I am aware that with 200mm Z-axis the footprint height will be 640mm.
However I don’t want to build a box to that full height, but build a box only as high as it has to be for the gantrys / rails / motors on the sides.
I will then have a lid, with a little tower somewhere to encapsulate the tool.
Therefore I need to know the minimum height my box needs to be, in order to encapsulate the side rail components.
How can I find that out?
Because it influences if I even go for 200mm, if that box height is still a lot more than 300mm.
Thank you for your time
