Changing axis dirrection
« on: February 13, 2011, 07:18:04 PM »

I am pretty new to Mach3.  I am running a 4 axis foam cutter with two x and y axis's that mirror each other.  Is there a way to change the dirrection of an individual axis using mach3.  For example, if I want to one or two of the y axis's moving in the opposite dirrection, can I do this? Thanks

There are two ways in which you can reverse an axis, the first is the active state of the Dir signal for that axis in ports and pins, motor tuning. This however should be set to what your drives require and should not actually be used to reverse as such.The proper way to reverse an axis direction is from Config menu then Homing and Limits, there you will see a reverse box for each axis.
