Softlimits question
« on: February 16, 2010, 11:00:27 AM »
I use softlimits on my Novakon Mill and whenever I load Mach 3 I get a "Softlimits System Movement Aborted" message in the status bar before I do anything  including referencing the mill.

Can anyone tell me what this means and why is it occurring?

Thanks

David

David at the moment i can only think that you have a move in the Initialisation script, i have never seen that problem asked before.

The string is under CONFIG, GENERAL CONFIG...

Nope, just G80.

Thanks Phil.

Dave, if you're not sure about the Pump, go to Gen. Config. and uncheck Run Macro Pump if it's checked, then restart and see if it clears up.

Hi Russ, I already have macro pump unchecked, so it is not that.

You either have your soflimits set wrong or for some reason you have moved outwith them when they were disabled and now you will have to move back before you can enable them.
What do you have the Soft Limits set as?

y max 13 min 0
x max 5.9 min 0
z max 0 min -11.35

I get the message when I start up Mach 3,  if I clear it, I only see it again if I move to one of the softlimit limits which is what I would expect.
