Setup - x axis jogging problem
« on: August 11, 2020, 08:20:58 AM »
when i use my right arrow key, the spindle moves left and vice versa with left arrow key. Also, as spindle moves right, the coordinates decrease (become more negative). is this a software or hardware problem? help!!

search on here for the right hand rule, stand facing machine with your right hand turned up and your thumb facing right, first finger facing forward and second finger facing up,  these are the plus directions of the spindle when moving.  Forget about the table moving its always the spindle that moves.

Hi,

In Config, / Ports & Pins / Motor Outputs  change the 'Dir Low Active' state for your X axis.
