Mach 3 Soft Limits Issue
« on: April 10, 2021, 03:02:34 PM »
I am having issues with my Soft Limits.
My machine is capable of
     X - 101.5"
     Y - 54"
     Z - 12.5"
I have set my limits in Motor Home/Soft Limits to these values
     X - Max:101.5 - Min:0
     Y - Max: 54 - Min:0
     Z - Max: 0 - Min: -12.5

Y and Z soft limits work perfectly.

The issues is that I can turn on my Soft Limits when my X is lower than 73.63" and it works all the way up to 101.5 when shuttling. The issue is when my CNC has a X value greater than 73.63" and I turn off Soft Limits I cannot turn it back on until I am under 73.63". Also if I have a job that is larger than 73.63" I cannot run it with soft limits enabled. I have been running without soft limits for a wile and would like to get this issue resolved.

softlimits are allways based to machine coords. so Switch to achine coords to check the values.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

Sorry, I guess that I did not mention that everything is in Machine Coordinates.
