Is there just a simple way to turn off the limit switches? or the mandate to do homing?
I don’t understand the need for the homing and limit switches. I always end up “babysitting” my machine anyway. Is it just so that the machine doesn’t hit the edges and keep running. If I recall correctly, the limit switches were an add on.
Problem: (2nd time this has happened; after first time Carbide sent me a new limit switch for the Y axis) When I start up my SO3 XXL when plugged into my computer Carbide Motion always makes me Home the machine first. So, I click on Homing to Begin and then after a few seconds I get the warning that the limit switch is hit. However, none of the three of my limit switches are actually being touched. The gantry is more than 6’’ away from each switch.
The switches do depress when I manually push them so I assume it is not that the switches are mechanically broken. I’m assuming that another one has a bad wire like the first time this happened.
My biggest concern is the projects I need to cut tomorrow but Motion will not let me do anything while the “limit switch is hit.”
