Finally got my A8 set up and together but running into a X "soft limit" error when I try and run a test file...Happens on all 5 of the files from the project...I've homed, set origin and touched off Z then chosen file then this error pops up...
Can't find any reference to this in the manual so looking for some insight
You will get that message when your project has the cutter going out of the limit of the machine X, Y or Z axis. Check your orientation of the work piece. I have made the same mistake several times, when I am not paying attention.
A better explanation is the machine is telling you that the way you have your work piece mounted the spoil board, the router bit cannot move that far. I usually have my projects starting at the center of my work piece, but today, I went to make a cut and my setup had me starting in the left corner, which was out of the limit the router could get to.
