    Hi all.

    I'm getting ready to build an OX and would like to know if anyone has built a longer Z axis. I would like to add more height to mine but don't want to reinvent the wheel if someone has already done it. If not, will lit cause any problems with the machine if I do?

    Thanks!

    Do you need just a deeper plunge, or more travel? Im sure you could do 500mm for Z but would want to make some sort of custom gantry plate that used atleast 180mm or more of X axis gantry (s0 3 20x60 rails?)
