Machine Height?

Hey all,
So, I just placed my order for a Build-Bundle here and I’m pretty excited to get started with this project. I know I’ll have some questions along the way. To start with, though, I’m wondering about the height of my finished machine… Looking over the assembly guides and cut guides I have a guess. If I have a usable height of 5 inches, and I park the gantry with no tool mounted and the mount touching the spoil board, would I be correct in assuming a height of about 14 inches?

I have the luxury of a fairly spacious shop, but I’m busy in there and always trying to plan my space. My plan at this moment is to build with a usable space of 20"x33" (5"-Z).


It will be whatever your z axis tube length is, plus the height of your Z stepper.
