Well it’s flat, probably overkill but I had the MDF so I thought I would try it. The U shaped support tub is probably too deep but I do get lots of Z height. This means most cuts are done with the Z carriage extended which is not ideal but your design is quite stiff in the Z axis so it’s not a major problem. My first cut was the XY plate of the MP3DP and it worked very well. I’ll share the clamping and dust collection when I get them tested. Since I have the Z height I’m going to build a vacuum table and try to cut some aluminum but that’s longer term.
