That worked! Now, what is the purpose of the soft limit button once illuminated?

It will stop you jogging outwith the soft limits. You may have to mess around with the slow zone. You want to set the distance so that when you jog towards your limit switch at full rapid the Softlimits will slow the axis  down and stop in time before it triggers the limit switch.

With the light on, it doesn't stop before tripping the limit switch. I have the slow set to 2.0.

Now all of the sudden, the Z axis winds down in the Pos direction like the motor is bad but works well in the Neg direction. I changed the settings back and it still does it. When I take it off of Soft Limits, it goes away. But it was no where near the limit switch.

What I am not getting is why the DRO does not read in inches, which is what I put in the soft limit option screen. When the spindle travels, for example on X axis two inches, it displays something else in the DRO. I dont get it. I have inches set up for units. What I did to begin with was travel to max axis from 0,0 and record what the DRO displayed for each axis. That didn't work but it should read the correct inches, correct? My actual DRO travel for Y axis was 2.7447 and the actual movement in inches is 18". I am so confused.

Ok, Hood but don't laugh because I have been working on this all day and made many mistakes. At least don't laugh within the post, lol.

This is it. Can you explain why the DRO does not indicate inches?

What are you meaning by that? If you zero the X DRO and command a move of 2 inch from the MDI line (G0X2) does the DRO not show 2?
