Mirror Image
« on: January 19, 2009, 05:47:25 PM »
I've cut my 1st piece after being certain everything would be perfect...

I now have a perfect mirror image of my name engraved in MDF. :)

The mirror image is from the Y axis.  Rather than changing my Y motor leads, I was wondering if there was a Mach3 setting which would solve this problem?

Also, when I jog using the keyboard, I would like to have it jog slower than it does so I can get closer to the my starting point for my gcodes. Any suggestions?

Thanks much...

Config > Homing Limits, check "Reverse".

Hit the tab key and set the slow jog %
