Switches are at each end of travel on each axis.

X axis would have value of 0" and 42"
Y                                   0" and 16"
Z                                   0" and -6"

Hood,

Thanks, no more bounce at value of 10.   Very nice indeed.

I have been tinkering and am getting 200 ipm rapids.

Now all I have to figure out is how to configure Soft Limits and Home. 

Hope you don't mind more questions. I sure appreciate your help.   I think when this machine is properly configured I will have learned a bit and have a good machine.

Regards,

Jack

Hood,

Thanks, got the auto limit override set up!   It seems to require me to reset try jog reset again and then jog works to get off the limit switch.  Is this correct? 

I will look into setting up the soft limits as it makes sense to use software rather than hardware when possible.   I like "belt and suspenders" approach when it comes to a dangerous machine.

I have to say that I like the Mach3-Gecko G540 system!

Again, thanks for your patience!

I just installed limit switches on my gantry router.   I am using a Gecko G540.   The limit switches work great but once they are tripped I don't know how to disable them to start the machine again.  Where is the override button in Mach3 ???

Thanks for any assistance you might offer!!!

When it works Mach3 is a pleasure to use but it has caused me more problems than any other software I use.   I'm at a loss as to how to proceed.   I'm workng on the Gecko drives to see if the problem is in the drivers but I think the real problem is in the software.

Thanks,

Jack

If it is a hardware issue then why do I get the warning light "one or more axis disabled or enabled" ?   It would be nice to know precisely what the warning refers to and how to correct the abnormal condition.

I am going to try a Gecko G540 and see if there is any difference.  I've never installed the G540 so this may take a while.

Thanks for your effort!!!  It is appreciated!

Hood,

Please excuse my ignorance.   I searched for XML files in Mach3 and found backups in the form of .XB  ie.  mach3mill.xb204  Is this what you want?
