Author Topic: slaved machine running opposite master... z going up when it should be going dow  (Read 1493 times)

I have built a Joes Evo machine with some minor modifications, using Joes plates.  In Mach 3 I have the Left side as the Y axis and the opposite side, as the A (slave) axis.  If just the Y is engaged, it works fine, although not as stable as if the two were running in concert. In a similar vein, the z axis seems to be going up when it should be going down.  (running the open sign path from vcarve)  Everything that has been a major crisis initially so far has turned out to be a simple fix,   I have read and re-read the Mach 3 manual and all of the other materials I have, and this one has me puzzled.  I am sure I am missing something.

I have Mach 3,   Joes Plates, velox 10:1 z slide with drop plate, CNCRP nema 23 kit, gecko 540.    I haven't put alot of time into the ESS from Warp9, figured I would incorporate that later, as things seem to be progressing nicely without it.
Thanks, John

Config menu then Ports and Pins then Motor Outputs  page, change the active state for the Dir pin of the axis you want to reverse.
