Softlimits warning... read other posts still stuck.
« on: May 28, 2014, 06:40:48 AM »
Hi, I have a soft limits warning on every single program I run. The program does run fine though.

Background: The lathe Z axis homes to the right of the machine and the X axis homes to the front of the machine on limit/homing switches.

X travel from front (home) to back is 185mm.
Z travel from right (home) to left (spindle) is 444mm.

I have included a screenshot of the homing limits and also the warning screen I get. I have read other Soft limits warning threads but can't see the problem.

Simple G-code:
G18 G21 G64 G80 G90 G40 G49 G94
M6 T0404
M0 ( TOOL 04 )
S750
F25
M3
G4 P0.1
M8
G4 P5
( Start Spring cut 01 )
G0 Z-23.14
G0 X10.5
G1 X5.8
G0 X10.5
( End Spring cut 01 )
( Start Spring cut 02 )
G0 Z-25.64
G1 X5.7
G1 Z-23.14
G1 Z-23.4 X6.0
G0 X10.5
( End Spring cut 02 )
( Part Off )
G0 Z-28.14
G1 X0.0
G0 Z50
G0 X50
M5
M9
M30

Any help appreciated

Try an older version to see if you still have the problem, maybe 057.

I tried 057 but exactly the same happened - got me stumped.

Is there no way to just disable the warning? It's obviously showing the warning in error as the program runs without hitting anything and if I jog to the limits then the switches or the soft limits work fine.

Probably not connected but I get this error if I try to start a cut without doing a re-origin first.

If i jog to start position, re-origin the display, then press start it works every time without warning.

This is on a plasma table.

One or two of the versions had this problem in Turn, try another and see. I thought I used 057 but would have to check to make sure.
I certainly wouldnt use 066 for Turn it has some problems.
