Config menu then Homing and limits and you can set values for the Soft Limits.
X Min Y Min and Z Max should all be Zero
X Max and Y Max should be the distance of each axis
 Z Min should be the distance of that axis but as a negative value.

If your switches are at the positive end of travel for X and Y or Negative for Z you will need to set a home off value for each that equals the distance you are away from the opposite end of travel.

Not sure what you mean by "scale an input to be cut within certain parameters" could you please try and explain a bit more.
