    On the open build parts store, it says that the C-Beam has

    "Z Axis Travel 160mm - (6") Actual working depth is 1.250""

    Is it true that one can only mill materials with a height (Z-axis) of 1.25 inches or less? If so, is there an easy way to increase this?

    I have just a smidge shy of 2" of material clearance from the lowest hanging point of the Z-axis to the top of my second 1/2" mdf spoiler board..

    I achieved this by lowering the X-axis gantry plate to be level with the Z-axis cbeam plate vs level with the cbeam itself. As can be seen in this photo..
