Soft limits broke in Turn?
« on: February 09, 2013, 04:43:49 PM »
I have Homing working well on my ORAC now and was attempting (unsuccessfully) to set up soft limits today.

Searches show a range of posts from "soft limits don't work at all in Turn" to "X works but not Z" to "Z works but not X" to "it's on the list to be fixed" to "it works great."

I seem to have trouble setting up anything new so it may just be me but am I wasting my time trying to make it worK?

They were fixed a while back, have them set on the big lathe and they are fine but its an older version of Mach  (057 i think) I use so may be broken in the latest. Wouldnt recommend 066 for a lathe anyway as there is at least one issue regards wear offsets in that and the Dev version and I also had some other weird things happen. Seems fine on Mill but Turn I would avoid the lockdown and Dev versions. Brian was told but not likely to get sorted as nothing ever does get sorted in Turn.

Thanks, I'm using .022 for the moment because I've been shy about updating and unknown things suddenly going tits up.  I guess it's time I should try a later version and see what happens.  Is it difficult to revert back to an older version if things go bonkers?

That may be too old, think you will have to go about 056 or 057 or there abouts.

Yep, I'm a Luddite idjit.  I just read the changelog and softlimits weren't fixed 'til last year sometime.  .022 is 2009 I think.  I'm off now to try a less ancient version.  If ya'll see a huge explosion in west Tenneessee on the 10:00 news, raise a glass in my memory willya? ;D
