How can I reverse the direction of my motors (permanently)?
« on: February 24, 2010, 02:16:47 PM »
My computer died and I am setting up Mach 3 from scratch. When I home my motors they go away from the switches. Can I reverse them in setup somewhere? I did it two years ago, but now I forget how.

I should have mentioned that I am using the milling application.

Config menu, homing and limits then choose to reverse the axis you wish. But if the DROs are working the right way as you jog then it will be the Home Negative option you want to change.
