axis won't reverse
« on: May 29, 2017, 06:27:40 PM »
Hello everyone

I'm new to cnc and mach 3
I have a China 6040 with mkx4 mach3 motion card
Full version mach 3 on hp g56 windows 7
via   xhc mach 3 usbpod

When I jog y and z axis they move correct, on x axis I press left it moves right press right it moves left  both on keyboard and mpg
I opened config homing\limit  all axis had a X in reverse column  I then changed the X with a check thinking it would reverse x axis motor
Nothing changed same thing
I went back to homing limit and changed y and z axis to reverse to see if it was just x axis but nothing changed

I pressed OK to leave homing limit
Pressed save settings on cofig menu

Any ideas would be appreciated

In ports & pins where you setup the motor pins set the X axis only to active low, should go in the correct direction then when you use cursor keys.
