I think we should add in code to look and see if the machine can run the program :) We Know if it is not going to fit..

That would take care of the thud  ;D
Thanks Brian, just out of interest how do "we know if it is not going to fit.."

Cheers

Mach 3 knows the Max and Mins of your program in machine cords and can tell if it is going to run past the softlimits :) SO You will just get an error telling you that it will not fit... Is that any help?

Thanks

Can't you tell now by running a simulation? I think I have tried it before and the simulation said the soft limits would trip or something to that effect. "Simulate Program Run" on the Toolpath screen.

Yes it is in the latest dev version of mach3 :) If it is going to go past the softlimits it will give you a message when you press the cycle start.. or it should ;)
