Brian, Thanks for the input.  I'm an idiot!  I double checked how my axes were running last night.  It turns out that my X axis was reversed!  I changed that and now all is good.  I think I just had a newbe panic attack.
Thanks again to all.

Thanks for the quick reply Chaoticone.  I just tried to post the G-Code I was using when the machine (Sherline by the way) cut the reversed image.  The forum rejected the file extension I had, so I changed the extention and I'll try again.  To be clear, my axes are running in the right direction and all of the scaleing DROs are positive.  I'll try another attachment.

General Mach Discussion / Help with reverse or mirror image engraving

Hello Everyone,

My name is Gary and I'm new to Mach 3 software, CNC and this forum.  I am struggling with getting everything to run.  Today, I ran into a problem that really has me stumped.  I downloaded a free engraving program called Desk Engrave.  I used this program to generate G-Code for a small, one line tru type engraving program.  I loaded this G-Code into my Mach 3 software and cut my engraving.  I got some beautifully cut engraving, with just one problem.  I need to use a mirror to read it!  The desk engrave and the mach 3 did not display the image in reverse.  It just cut that way!  As a newbe I really don't know how to fix this.  I don't know if the problem is in Desk Engrave or Mach 3.  Could someone point me in the right direction.  Thanks
