Im looking into buying the X Carve, but before I buy it. I was curios on what is the max thickness of material that fits on the x carve. I need to be able to fit about 2 5/8" material. I dont need to to carve that deep, I only need to carve about 1/2" into the material but the material is thick. Would it fit. Can I remove the waste board to make it fit or modify the xcarve?
I think about 2.5" is about it under a stock xcarve. You can buy y axes riser and lift it 2" and have plenty of room then.
You could remove the waste-board if you wanted to, but I would recommend fastening the X-Carve to your table since the waste-board does provide some rigidity and weight to the machine.
You can also purchase/make X-Axis risers if you so desire.
Awesome Thanks. Do you have any risers to recommend? Or are they all about the same?
I can’t really recommend one over the other. Just look around the forum and Google and you will find a few people offering them.
These are the ones I have. Very happy with them. You should also get the Y-Axis stiffeners. See checkboxes on the same page.
I’m no longer using mine and have only a 10 hours on it. Like new if you’re interested.all ready to go along with the computer email me email@example.com
