Just finished a scaled up Rockcliffe Fixed gantry (I'm very excited, but the wife is still not impressed!).
I am in the process of setting up with Mach 3 software, but I read that one should use limit and home switches. I am a complete newbie to CNC so could anyone please offer some advice? I was thinking of fitting simple microswitches to each axis (as electronic end stops) and wiring them to the logic cct? Is this the norm?
Do we have to use them?
Any help would be most gratefully received..
