  • WILL PAY for help | Cobra Elite Series


    Hello! We are fairly new to CNC machines but we have a CAMaster Cobra Elite series.
    Tech support from CAMaster is almost nonexistent and we're having some issues with our machine..

    we finally got it setup and running, we've created a few different G-code files to run on the machine (using using Mozaik & Vectric)
    but each time we run the code we get an error saying "Error soft limit exceeded (z+)" ...

    I will add that in the middle of the 100x test runs we did the machine actually DID cut the test piece ONE time..
    but since that happened we haven't been able to get it to cut again.. all with the same error before and after we got it to cut the one time.

    (it really doesn't make sense how it happened to work that time) but I'm willing to try any solution because we've had this machine for a year and have only
    been able to cut one test piece and even that felt like an accident haha

    I can't help but feel like it's something small like a parameter adjustment for a setting that we're overlooking but I don't know enough about WINcnc to find the problem.

    any help would be greatly appreciated and if you can help get this working for us we can pay!

    thank you!!

              The z+ error basically is you asking the machine to go higher than it can on the z. For instance, if you have 8 inches of z travel and you ask it to go to 10 inches it will give that error. If you have a long bit loaded and want it to go 5 inches over the material, it will do that. It could be that you zero to the bed in the design file and zero to the top of material at the machine. Many things can create it, but one way or another you are asking the machine to do what it can't do and the built in safety is stopping you.

                Where in Florida? I'm located in Jupiter FL and would be interested in helping out if you are not too far away. However, I don't use Moziak so hopefully James can help you there.

                  I spent some time with them yesterday and the machine set up as it should and works well. Checked the moziak PP alongside mine and it is a perfect match, i have an idea what the problem is and we will get back on line later today.

Machine company tech support can only go so far in teaching operation, We built this forum in 2008 as a simple tool to fill the stopgap of learning curve, it has become so much more. if you have a problem as the British say "Keep Calm and bring it to CAMheads ! " LOL
