Technical Q & A

Error - Not Enough Axes Designated

This occurs when a cut file is run that has commands for an axis that is not currently being used. Most often this is the A or B axis. If needing to add an indexer or second cutting head, go to Values->Display Values and set the "Number of Axes Displayed" to 5.

Most likely, a tool number in the file has been designated for the A axis. Check the file being run, and set the tool number to a number between 1 and 19 if you are using one cutting head.
