Inverse print - duet3D 2 WiFi - cura - cartesian Printer

  • Anyone know what this phenomenon is, print is correct in position in Cura, when I print it prints inverse mirror it’s self on the Y axis

    In the reprap configuration tool and the printer all axises are in moving forward Direction Correctly

    my zero origin is front left side of the build plate
    Which is the same spot in Cura


    the Y and X axis are flipped - definitely an Visual indication of what’s off,... but the question is how do I sync it with my printer Y and X axis

    Cura’s X is my Y
    Cura’s Y is my X

    Thoughts Oh great duet 3D forum

    Post your config.g and homeall.g

    Where are the endstops physically located?

    X Low
    Y low

    Standard configuration and a G92 set Z zero position

    Z and X seem to be OK
    Y seems to be inverted

    Is the Y endstop at the front or the back of the machine? It's configured as low end, but where is it physically located?

    X+ should move to the right, X- should move to the left.
    Y+ should move the nozzle to the back of the bed.
    Y- should move the nozzle to the front of the bed.

    Also post your homex and homey files.

    Also what is in your slicer start gcode?

  • @Phaedrux Low end on the side of the stepper motor like X axis

    pointing to my zero origin



  • @Phaedrux

    My figuration


    Y = axis mounted on Z
    X = bed plate axis
    Z = vertical axis of course

    Are you possibly sayin my X and Y are reversed

    Should be?

    Y = bed plate axis
    X = axis mounted on Z
    Z = vertical axis

    Very possible, I just followed the schematics from the Cetus MK 3 drawings - which is the base cord hardware - just replace the extruder, Hotend and motherboard

    Actually that would be cool if it was, because that would probably solve the problem

  • @supset shit, is that it,WTF


  • @supset said in Inverse print - duet3D 2 WiFi - cura - cartesian Printer:

    tiertime has a habbit of swapping x and y, and randomly inverting axis as well. probably the reason some use the endearing term teartime instead of tiertime...

  • @bearer A little earlier research, I would’ve figured that out,... WTF lol

    So far so good, carbon fiber nylon.

    after the fix, I can print without inverting first

    This is basically a a Pinto,With new hardware worth more than itself

    Thanks Gentleman!



  • well, most tiertime users are none the wiser as their slicer hides the facts that they swap and invert things so unless you go "off-piste" its not something you're like to find out - and even then its not well documented at all.

    Looks like you've solved it. I didn't realize that the Cetus was switched up like that.
