George,

Many CNC operators "slice" large 3-D parts instead of trying to cut the entire piece at one time. When you realize that the spindle and the Z-axis mechanism interfere with deep Z-axis cuts, you'll see that cutting many layers 20mm at a time is often the more practical approach.

There are several (high-priced) software programs that have "slicing" capabilities.

Meshcam is only $175 and has a slicing facility.

Here is a foam project posted at ShopBot today - it was done with a low height gantry and slicing. More examples
