explain soft limits please
« on: April 11, 2012, 12:16:35 PM »
Hello all,

lathe - regarding soft limits

When setting up config/home/limits we are asked to set up soft limits

where is the origin for the point that the soft limit is measured from?

Is my assumption that setting soft limits to +100 and -100 that the
limit of movement will be Home position plus minus 100?

many thank

( lovely weather here in Johannesburg)
regards fred

in it's simplest terms, the softlimits are the distance from the machine coordinates (usually the home point) you wish the machine to have as a limit on each axis.
