Soft limits
« on: December 08, 2021, 05:34:25 PM »
Mach 3 will not let me turn on the soft limit icon. Every time I press it I get (Machine out of limits for soft limit activation.) I home in the upper right on my CNC. I have the machine coordinates set to 0.0000 for all axis's with the machine located where I would home it. I also have my soft limits set to 0.0000. I have been trying to get my soft limits set for a long time so I can use my machine with no luck because I can't seem to get the soft limits set. I have mechanical limit switches installed but when the trip I have to turn of the machine and move it off the limit switch. I don't know where I can set that so it backs off one the switch is tripped. Would rather use the soft limits.

with Settings (screen) -> override limits you shold be able to jog off a limit switch.

soft limits are only working with machine coordinates, so you have to have reference switches and
referenced all you axis to use them.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
