image flipping
« on: November 03, 2016, 06:57:25 PM »
  I am not sure if this is a Mach3 or an Aspire question, but here it goes.

I recently installed Aspire.  When I finish creating an image, i have to reverse it before I can calculate tool paths otherwise it cuts backwards on the table. It appears to be flipped right side to left, but not top to bottom.  Is there a button or something in Mach 3 or Aspire that needs to be checked so it will cut the image as drawn on the screen without having to software / machine reverse it?

I have a 6040z with no switches.  I basically center the bit on the board that i am working and zero X,Y and Z making center of the board home on each piece. Hope that makes since.

Thanks for any help or suggestions in advance

You're machine is most likely set up with the left to right axis backwards.
