Using Soft Limits....
« on: November 14, 2013, 08:48:13 PM »
I've never used soft limits in Mach3.  Today I tried to set them up on my new Novakon Pulsar mill, and could not get them working.  First, the units and reference are not clear.  I'm assuming soft limits are specified in machine coordinates?  Is there some enable somewhere I'm missing?  I set the Z limits to -0.5, and -11.5, but could still run unimpeded into the hard limits.

There's a Soft Limit On/Off button right below the DRO's, next to the Machine Coordinates button.
