After you calibrate for belt stretch, you can extend the soft limits - I adjusted and snuck up on them until I didn’t trip them until i was pretty close to the actual travel. Be aware the soft limits should not be enabled if limit switches are not enabled.
Here is where to set the soft limit travel:
$130=225.000 (x max travel, mm)
$131=125.000 (y max travel, mm)
$132=170.000 (z max travel, mm)
If you see the machine not home all the way back to the switches, and report a homing failure, it’s because the homing travel needs to be made larger. I don’t remember exactly what to set to manage the total travel it can use when homing. I’ve seen some people need to adjust it. There might be something in the forums here.
Back to the regularly scheduled program…
To clear the alarm state you get in when you hit a soft limit:
to home. As I understand it, you should always home from the alarm state - that alarm state can be entered from a number of conditions, some of which are because the machine believes it has reached an unsafe state or lost it’s position (like, say, crossing a soft limit), but the homing cycle will bring it to a known good position.
Hopefully that helps, and isn’t riddled with mistakes
