So I understand that the Shapeoko Pro has holes in the aluminum extrusions below the hybrid table to screw the machine into the table to secure it in place. That said before I do so I was working on my enclosure yesterday and when my eye was a table height I noticed a little daylight between the aluminum extrusion at the base of the hybrid table and the table surface itself. In other words if 3 corners of the Shapeoko Pro hybrid table are touching, the fourth corner of the machine has a little daylight between it and the table under it. Keeping in mind that it’s probably about 1mm on the entire span of the XXL model but just curious what would be the suggested approach and at what point should someone need to concern themselves with this? It’s possible that the hybrid table is slightly warped but I’m leaning more towards the torsion table I built is not perfectly flat.
In my case with less than 1mm of daylight do I just ignore this and screw it down?
Should I shim the spots that I can see daylight especially where the screws to secure the machine are?
What would be the recommended limit to this before issues could arise with the linear rails and also see tolerance issues in the projects itself?
Personally I’m thinking of adding some cork under the aluminum extrusion holding the hybrid table together to dampen the vibrations of the machine and over time it should pack itself and likely address the flatness of my DIY table + the flattening of the spoilboard.
