I’m looking to add ~4" in height to the machine. Not Z-height, but looking to get the whole thing up a little more off a (theoretical) fixture plate. I have some fixture ideas which don’t need to be reachable by the machine, or even I’d prefer it to be physically impossible for the machine to hit it, so to maximize the range of the already limited Z-height I want to get the whole thing raised.
I did a quick model of 4" blocks, and it seems like that’s enough. I’m a little worried about stability, especially in motion. I’m currently thinking these are bolt through, so 4 bolts into clearance holes and the whole thing gets rigid with the base plate. I could also key it into the slight dovetail on the feet. This might make it a bit more rigid since the load isn’t pure friction.
Ideas or thoughts welcome.
