I finally have a permanent home for the SO3 where it’ll actually be usable on an ongoing basis (long story) so I’m getting ready to install the HDZ and make some other mods. I just started looking at how to level it and install a waste board setup. One of the prior mods was to install the C3D black one-piece threaded table. I was thinking about making a torsion box base but then wondered if it’s necessary.
My question is this: since the table is in theory dead flat, and the Y rail metal plates attach to it, can I rely on only this for the basic machine rigidity, and skip right to adjusting the X/Y extrusions and tramming the Z?
Seems to me the table has enough rigidity that I shouldn’t need anything else. Am I being overly optimistic?
