General Mach Discussion / x axis direction question mach3
« on: March 28, 2019, 11:23:01 AM »
is there a way to change the x axis direction on the screen in mach 3. currently on my screen when I move the x axis in the positive direction  the cursor moves from left to right   but I would like the cursor to move from right to left in the positive direction. I have played with reversing the motors and reversing in homing/limits  and the screen allways moves from left to right? 

when I load a rotary job on mach3  the toolpath does not display properly when first loaded it shows as a round wheel when I home the machine and redraw the toolpath it will display the job correctly but allways puts the job at machine x-0 , y-0  not displayed at the work coordinates of the job and if I start the job I will get a soft limit warning if I ignore the warning and continue  the job will run fine   I suspect the problem has to do with the header of the g-code for a rotary job versus a flat job that is on the table top    but all the things I have tried has not worked so now I am here hoping some one will have the answer to my delima

I am setting a 4th axis and for the most part i have it working just fine but for some reason the toolpath display is wrong my a axis wraps around the y axis  i am trying to have it display like a cylinder but for some reason it is displayed like a plate  it seems to cut properly ( alltho so far all i have cut is air ). I have searched for the solution and could not find it if its there please point me in the right direction thanks in advance  ;D
