I think that is the recommended height but if you watch any of the videos on their site, the setups they have are MUCH higher than 1.5″. Talking to one of my guys who is a laser expert (used to work for one the big industrial laser supplier) and he encouraged me to be as close to the part as possible to minimize the losses due to the beam hitting anything in the air. I have mine set up at about 2″ now but I will likely lower it when I come up with a good height tool (spacer block) to allow for easy setup.
