axis direction
« on: May 11, 2009, 08:27:22 PM »
Hopefully this is a simple question.  How do I switch my axis direction.  I would like to switch z- to z+.  It seems like it should be in the the xml but I can not find it.

Thanks!

Homing/Limits screen, check "Reversed"

simply invert the axis under "motor output" settings... or you can change your hotkey (Config>System HotKeys) but the 2nd step will not change how your cnc will run under the same g code.

Hi, Kurt

You should use Config, Homing & Limits screen "Reversed" Column), Using Motor Output's can cause Issues with some Axis Control Board's.
