General Mach Discussion / softlimit problems
« on: July 20, 2009, 10:51:56 AM »
I am trying to set soft limits without a home switch.  I made some soft limits in the home / limits menu.  I tried to activate the soft limits and the communications bar read "machine out of limits for softlimits activation".  I need a step by step on how to set up some soft limits and homes to run a few programs for my z axis parts and my optical switches for homing and limits. 

I have an x2 running the probotix red motor 3 axis setup and my table travel is 9" x axis, and 4" y axis.

General Mach Discussion / surfacing wizard
« on: April 11, 2008, 11:23:52 AM »
I am looking at using the wizards for the first time.  Is there any glossary in the help files to tell me what some of the fields are?  I am using the one created by kiran.  What does it want for tool offset for x and y? 

By the way i am using a 2.5" flycutter with coolant on an x2 minimill.  I want to surface a a block 8Wx5Lx2D. 
Is the new fangled wizards worth the $$$$?

Was it neccessary to use what ever size box tubing that is?  I am no machine builder and i understnd the concept of build it right once, but in your opinion would it be safe to use 2x3 box with either a 1/8 or 1/4 wall thickness?

the mach2 is the download available on the download page listed as mach2r6.11n .  Well I will deal with this for now until the new computer arrives for setup.  Do you know if the artsoft group has any postprocessor info available for mastercam x?  I am going to be using mastercam x and the mach3 sofwares with an Industrial hobbies mill and a retrofitted cnc 12x36 lathe helped along by industrial hobbies.

it says file version but i don't know.  I was playing around with it for about a half hour and now it froze again.  I ran the OCXDriver test and it worked again after that.  What could be happening.  After the test is ran the all the numbers are coming up in the range stated in the instructions.
