"Soft warning on X max Dia Mode" on Mach3 Turn
« on: August 12, 2013, 11:23:32 AM »
When I start a program I get a "Soft warning on X max Dia Mode" message.  Another problem is if I hit continue, the machine starts but only .0005 at a time. I have fiddled around with the soft limits settings and now am completely baffled. I am a new CNC study and confuse easily. Is there a way to turn off Soft limits without changing all of the settings in the Limits setup screen?

If you attach your xml and some code you get the issue with I will take a look.
Also what version are you using as I think 056 would give you the warning message even though there was no problem with it being near a soft limit. However the file would run fine so it sounds like a different problem.

I have the same problem every so often on soft warning. I found that if you click "Rewind" then "Regenerate" fixes the problem. The "Continue" creep seems to be an issue with the software. It usually happens after pressing stop and start command. There are a few posts on this problem.

Hi Hood,
My version is R3.043.022.  The files you requested are attached.  Thanks for taking time to look at the files!

You have a max for X of 0.1 and Z 0 in Soft Limits, that doesnt seem right.

Also the feedrate in that code is 0.004 and as you are in G94 mode that means inch per min.

Thanks for the responses geh 7552 and Hood. Thanks to Hood 1/2 of the problem is solved.  Somehow the feedrate changed in my settings and I didn't notice it.  I still am confused about the soft limits though.  When I move the carriage with my hand controller the soft limits work exactly where I want them with plenty of room to run the code in question.  My main concern is keeping Z from slamming into the chuck which works.  I don't see where Hood gets the .1 in X. I might just reset X back to software defaults and just use Z soft limits to stay away from the chuck.

Unless you are using the same tool all of the time then you will not be able to cater for stopping a tool slamming into the chuck as softlimits are in relation to axis travel and not tool position.

From your xml, see screenshot.
