Soft Limits
« on: January 03, 2016, 10:25:33 AM »
I searched and read a lot of posts on soft limits and nothing really applied...maybe I am overlooking something simple...setting seem right and the machine is homed...

Any suggestions?

Not sure what the question is, but do you have Somtlimits turned on?

Hmmmm..cant find anywhere to "turn them on"? I have them set up in home/limits, looked in general config, cant find any toggle to enable them. The original question was why is it running fine when I exceed soft limits?

Thanks

You need to add a button to turn them on and off.
You also want an LED to show you when they are on or off.

They are probably not turned on.

That looks like a modified Aqua screen? The default Aqua has a Softlimits button.

Thanks! Once again a simple solution I missed! Probably in the manual!
