 sorry to be a pain but just tried the Z offset that Chris (Creap_Pea) was mentioning a few pages back and it still gives a Z softlimits warning., ie set G54 offset to Z-200 have Tool Z offset to +200.

Thanks a lot Art/Hood, I can see you have both been busy.

Good to see X and Y softlimits warnings seem to be working properly, Just need to sort the Z out then it will be perfect.

Cheers

Just tried version R2.0.008, still no joy with the tool offsets.

I guess you probably haven't had the time to work on it or it's proving to be harder to sort than first expected, anyway keep up the good work.

Any luck with this yet.

Didn't notice any difference in version R2.0.009

Cheers

I think that Art needs a bit more data to show right where the problem is... IT is very hard to get stuff like this fixed when you are sitting at your desk and it is not doing it :(

Hi

This is as simple as I can get it, set Z work offset to say -200 and the tool offset to say 200. Softlimit on -Z must from -10 to -199. This will give a warning but then if you run the code it won't go onto the softlimits.

G90
G43H1Z-1.
G1Z-10.F1000.
G0Z-1.
M30

Then try the same program with a Z workoffset of 0.0 and 0.0 in your +Z softlimit setting.
It will rapid straight on to the softlimits with no warning.

Hope this helps

Chris

Just tried Version R2.0.011, it works a treat  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I did find one little bug but it doesn't bother me but may be worth sorting, if you change a tool offset you have to regen the toolpath before starting other wise it just uses the old data for the softlimit warning, so it could possibly run onto the softlimits, interestingly this doesn't happen when you change a work offset.

Thanks, I'm a happy man now.

I'm don't like saying this but I spoke to soon, I'm having trouble with G2 & G3.

This code gives me a Z- soft warning, with g54 Z set at -70, H3 set at 60 and my -Z Softlimit at -127.0 all in mm.

G21
G17G80G90
T3M6
G0G90G54X0.Y0.
G43H3Z10.
G1Z0.F222.8
G2X5.Y5R5. (something to do with this line)
M30


Sorry, I hope it will be a easy fix
