Axis reversed??
« on: August 03, 2011, 10:40:31 AM »
I just know I'm going to feel stupid when I find the answer to this but my poor little brain seems to have stopped working :(

Went to cut the below item out and the red quadrant cutout, was on the right (white circle). SO, I'm assuming my X axis is reversed.
Made a little test file up of 5 holes, centre NSEW, ran it through cutviewer to see the order then tried it on the mill and yes, on the mach3 screen it shows the cutter going left when in fact it's going right.
Changed the dir low active in mach3 but it still does the same. Go on tell me, what really obvious thing am I missing ;)

PS....Hood, I've got my stop watch out ;)

Hi Rikk,

I was going to tell you that but I thought Hood would have got there before I finished typing  ;D
(perhaps he has taken the afternoon off and gone fishing ?)

Yea I was very disappointed, he certainly seems to be slacking ;)

All good now and cut the item out I wanted to :)

So much fun, always something new to learn 8)
