Mach3 X Axis Moving The Wrong Direction
« on: February 19, 2017, 02:31:49 AM »
I'm sure you guys have answered this a million times but I came up empty on how to solve this issue. My X axis is moving the wrong direction (mirrored). I tried going in Config-Homing/Limits and checked the reverse box, but it didn't change anything, even after a restart. Am I missing something? Is there a way to reverse this? Or do I need to reverse the wiring or something? Thank you for your time.

Config. / Ports and Pins / Motor Outputs   -   Change the Dir Low Active state for the axis in question then Apply.

 This does not help me because my display reads negative from home in X and when I get it  to read positive it will not bounce of the microswitch it tries to keep going When I get it to  bounce off microswitch it reads negative from microswitch changing the left and right arrow as well
