Slaved Axis Moves Wrong Direction When Homing
« on: August 03, 2014, 10:48:21 PM »
A friend of mine just bought a CNC router, which has a slaved axis on the gantry.  All works perfectly when jogging, but when homing, the two slaved motors move opposite directions.  What settings can cause that?

Home negative in Config>Homing. Make sure both are the same.

If they are the same, then one axis is backwards, and he needs to reverse it.
