no luck with simulation

Very excited to get ECM2 installed and running with no troubles. Going through the manual now but in the mean time tried out the simulation with no luck. Loading any file and running always fails. Constant 'Program exceeds machine maximum on axiz Z'. You would think one simulation would work nothing. If any one could help it would be great.

Thanks,
Mike

What sim are you trying? If it is Axis Sim and your trying to run the splash file then read the first few lines of the file...

Every sim in the example folder fails when loaded and ran.

The first few say to 'Touch Off the Z axis'. I did this but it did not seem to work. None of the simulations will work. Homing all axis, touching off the z axis all end in fail. The simulation bot in another window never ever moves. Please help. If it could even draw a simple line then I could build from there. At least something.

To strat EMC you should hit the estop button, then turn the machine on (hit F1 then F2) then home each Axis the dro will show they have been homed. Then try a program or jog around.

Loading any file and running always fails. Constant 'Program exceeds machine maximum on axiz Z'. You would think one simulation would work nothing.


In the ini file for each AXIS there is a MIN_LIMIT and a MAX_LIMIT edit these to the proper size of your machine. EMC is telling you the dimensions of the work in the file you want to load is larger than the work area.
In your case it appears your Z axis does not have enough travel.

Thanks again for the help. I'll try homing each axis and possibly editing the ini file if there is one for the simulator. I guess the frustrating part is that ror the simulator I'm not sure if or where or what MIN_LIMIT or MAX_LIMIT sizes should be, what the work area size is or how much travel the Z axis has.
