Threaded rod

Idiot question but should the threaded rod be trimmed/ shortened to line up with the bottom of the Z rails?

I only ask because as I cut the intermediate estlcam project in polystyrene the bottom of the rod fouls the workpiece.




Thanks, brilliant response as usual.

Really impressed as I’m getting used to playing with it.


Thanks I was also wondering about this. I just completed the build and move the machine around using the LCD last night!!
