Mirrored X axis

  • Hello I have been printing for a long time and have recently bought a FT5, which I am not thrilled with but oh well. I have recently upgraded the board with the duet 3D wifi and I love it! However my axis in the x axis is still flipped! I had to move my axis end-stop (because it was in the wrong stop) so now it should be homing at the back right. However my x goes in the opposite direction. Please help!

  • the homing moves are defined in the home[xyzall].g files. if you want to change the direction. you will need to edit them.

    Use a M569 command in config.g to reverse the X axis direction. See the GCodes page on the wiki.

  • Hello again, I tried this however when I press home all it still does the same thing. I then changed the home all file and it seemed to work. But when I tried to print something the motors drove in the opposite direction for the x/y and then only the y moved but only a little. So it was 'printing" in the back corner. I am not sure what is going on. I tired recreating the configuration settings and now nothing is moving. Really confused... what should my next step be?

  • Okay I tried uploading new config.g file and now I can't eve connect to the board... 😕 😠

  • Can you post your config files and homing files?

    There have been a few other posts about the FT5 such as this one. The confusion arises from the fact it uses the back right as the 0,0 point rather than the front left.
