Enter table size?
« on: November 21, 2010, 05:19:40 PM »
Hi,

I'm still setting things up and am a newbie as well...I'm trying to gt everything set, home, soft limits, etc...

Where do I set up my table size so I can see it in the display mode?

Thanks,

Paul

That is controlled by your soft limits settings. You may have to press the Display button to toggle it to table view and possibly have to Regen the toolpath.

OK, thanks, but is the travel vs actual table size a different setting? If so which is which? Sorry to be so ignorant...

Travel is the same as table size in the respect that it is the area you have for cutting. For example a knee mill may have a longer length than the X axis can travel  and table is narrower than the Y axis travel but the actual distance each axis travels determines the cutting area.
So really instead of saying Table view it may be better to say work area.
