MP3DP V5 Plate thickness?

G’day guys,

Starting to gather the parts to build a V5 and acidently ordered 4mm Aluminium plate instead of 5mm. looking at the CAD I cant see an issue with using 4mm except for maybe the stepper mounts.

Can I get away with 4mm or is there something I missed and therfore better off getting some 5mm?


I think you’ll be good with 4mm I don’t think you’ll have any issues anywhere. @vicious1 will know for sure

4mm should be fine, the only place it could matter structurally is the 2 X rail supports, and I think they will be fine.
