To clarify the Z Travel distance, this is not the max cutting depth. Z travel is the distance downwards it can travel before hitting the spoiler board supports.
This kit has a Z travel of 69mm, if you had a 12mm spoiler board, this will reduce the Z travel to 57mm. In this case 57mm is maximum thickness of material that will fit on the machine.
To calculate the max cutting depth for a chosen piece of material it is:
Max Cutting Depth = Z travel – Material Thickness
For instance a setup with a 12mm spoiler board, the max Z travel is 57mm, if we wanted to cut into a material 30mm thick the max cutting depth would be:
Max Cutting Depth = 57 – 30 = 27mm
This means with a 30mm piece of material we would not be able to cut the whole way through.
The max thickness that can be cut the whole way through is half the Z travel. So with a Z travel of 57mm, we could cut the whole way through a piece of material 28.5mm thick.
