Stepper Motor Runs in Wrong Direction
« on: July 16, 2009, 09:41:44 AM »
After days of frustration I have finally got my Taig/Gecko G540 system setup except for one minor caveat.  My x/y home is bottom left, my "Ref All" sends everything to the right place and my Limit and Home switches which areall on one input setup in series all work.  The problem is when I run some G-code it shows the motor direction on the screen going in the correct direction but on the table the Y Axis is running opposite to what the screen is indicating.  I dare not touch another "configure screen" for fear of meshing everything up and having to start all over.  Can somebody tell me what can be done to correct this problem.

Thanks so much

John

Config menu then Homing and limits and choose Reverse for that axis. If it is homing the correct direction at the moment then you will also have to change the state of the Home Negative setting on that page.
