out of soft limit error

Post by ltasset »

I'm new to using my Axiom machine and am getting an error on a project. The error is "X+ out of soft limit"
Could use some help in explaining the problem.

How big is the piece you're trying to machine? What is the size of your Axiom machine?

Say your bed is 2' wide (x axis) x 4' high (y axis). You zero your spindle to the center of X axis, x=12", y=0". Your piece is 18" wide and you've created the gcode with the material origin at the bottom left. When you go to machine the part, you will get "X+ out of soft limit" because your X axis cannot travel far enough to the right to machine it. It's falling off the right side.
