I get a unnecessary softlimit warning when doing this code, with the Z work offset set at -128 and the tool offset H3 set at 50, oh my Z minus softlimit is -127mm.

G21
G17G80G90
T3M6
G0G90G54X0.Y0.
G43H3Z10.
G1Z0.F222.8
G1Z5.
M30

Here's the screen shot of the diagnostics page when running the code, the abs max is -73 but it goes to -68 and the abs min is -128 but it only goes to -78 in the program if you run it.

Cheers

Chris

Just wanted to say that 2.013 works for me,ver 2.020,and 21 are back to giving the softlimit warning.I use G54 fixture offsets for x and y only,no z.Use g43 tool offsets,all offsets are minus.Just like Haas or other VMC.Will they be changing back in the later versions?

Yeah version R2.0.011 to R2.0.014 where nearly there, there is just one slight problem with this version, if you use G2 or G3 codes you may have problems as reported a few post back.

I have a brigdeport boss machine with a knee so find it very usefull to set all the tool offsets as positive and use a Z work offset, this way I can do different jobs with different table heights without having to reset all my tool lenghts.

Cheers

Just tried ver 2.022,still giving softlimit warning,rolled back to ver 2.013 for now,wish it had the new dros on the diagnostics page,was gonna compare them.I havent noticed the problen when using g2 or g3,but will try a circle program with different tool lengths to see if it does.I have a bridgeport boss also,is yours servo or stepper?

Hi Guys:

  I knew adding those DRO's would show me something. The problem trurned out to be in a section I wasnt in. It IS fixed for the next version, it should be
out in th emorning, Im pretty sure we can consider it dead.. I now get proper readings in all areas in the test file..

Thanks

Chris:

  By the way, if you loaded that program, and set your work offet to -128 and the tool was not yet applied, then if Z was at zero, then -128 woudl be the minimum.. The first move woudl be x0, y0, z-128 in machien coords when the G0X0Y0 was seen..

It's a series 1 Boss 6.1 using the original drivers and stepper motors, It's a metric machine with 0.01mm steps.

Just out of interest do you reset all your tool offsets for each job or do you only do one job on your machine, I'm intrigued as to how you work?

Chris,mine is a series1,but a boss 2 or 3,dont know for sure,control was gone when i got it.Has original steppers,with gecko drives.On my offsets I touch off a 1.00 block with the tool on top of the part,or the longest tool if more than 1 is used.Then if you change to a different part height just raise or lower the table and retouch the tool,or longest tool off of the new workpiece.The offset values will remain the same,your just moving the work to a known distance from the tool tip when the machine is at zero.Thanks for your interest,I was wondering what kind of rapid your able to get with the factory stepper drive,im getting 140 ipm with the gecko on x and y but only 100 on the z,my z motor is a little weak.

Joe, I also have a Series 1 Boss 6.1 but like you I use Geckos and also I replaced the original motors with 916 oz/in hybrid steppers. I get 2500mm/min which is less than you but I am curious what the reduction on yours is, the Boss6.1 had a 2.5:1 reduction, I think maybe the Boss 6 only had a 2:1 but not sure.
