Thank You Docltf.

You were right.  Apparently I had the "X" axis reversed in the ports and pins setup.

Once I corrected it the text comes out the way it's supposed to.

General Mach Discussion / Backwards Text

Hi Everyone,

I am new to CNC and Mach 3.  With that said I am using Cut2D as the cad/cam program.  In Cut2D there is a sample of text called "rocket".  When I load the G code into Mach 3 and begin to machine it out the text comes out backwards.  You can only read it in a mirror.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or have any ideas as to why the text is backwards?  

It displays correctly in the tool path but cuts wrong.  I double checked the ports and pins setup and the table setup but still haven't found anything out of place.

I am using Gecko G203V's as the drivers for the stepper motors and I am using a PMDX 132 for the computer interface.

Any help would be appreciated.
