'Machine out of limits for softlimit activation"...huh?
« on: April 19, 2011, 04:33:58 PM »
Ok,

I've finally got my motors to run in the proper directions, I've installed X, Y, and Z limit switches.  My table is 2' X 4'.  I'm using inches as the metric.

I'm attempting to home everything and set limits, but I keep getting the message "Machine out of limits for softlimit activation".

What configuration setting does that error msg. refer to?  How can I clear that condition?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Your already in the range of your softlimits. You can't turn on softlimits when your in the area you set up in Config, homeing and limits.  You can set your home off distance to your softlimit max or min depending on which direction your homeing in.  Here is a screen shot and a link that may help in setting up if this is all new to you.
