soft limits don't respond
« on: August 15, 2016, 03:53:01 AM »
i am beginner in mach3 and not a native English speaker :-[
when i use "soft limits" and i move any axe manually, it didn't stop exactly at the point that i defined in mach3 parameters
sometimes it exceed the limits and sometimes it didn't reach it, and the big problem is that the value between when it stop and my limits is random for me and not expectable
my question is "can i control this value and how ?"
another problem is that sometimes some axes didn't even respond to the limit although soft limits it's active !!
i am sure that have done something wrong somewhere so please tell me if you have any solution to do . ???

you have homed the machine first - this is a must.

What sensors/switches are you using for the limit/home switches ?

Once set, soft-limit should never change during a session, if the homing switches are a bit rough then it might vary from one session to the next.
