X Axis is printing mirror of object.



  • Hey guys need some help figuring out this. I am using simplify 3d to generate my gcode. Simplify 3d show the correct gcode as you can see below. I am thinking I need to reverse my x axis in my config file. I try flipping the x and y axis in simplify 3d but output from printer does not match simplify 3d. How can I fix this.

    Your 0,0 origin should be the front left side of the printer, and +X move to the right and +Y move to the back.



  • I have my Y end stop at the back right side of the printer., shown with the yellow circle. Is there a way I can fix it in the config file. I might have to setup up my origin at the center of the bed.



  • @karim You will likely have to modify these commands:

    • M569 to change the direction of the motion on the relevant axes
    • M574 to change the endstop to home at the high end of the relevant axes.

    You would then have to change the home scripts to home to the opposite side of the axis (homeall.g, homex.g, homey.g, etc.)



  • This is my config.g, Are you saying to reverse Y and Y, also this is an IDEX setup.

    See the section about identifying motor direction, and then work out your endstop positions and homing directions from there.

    @karim said in X Axis is printing mirror of object.:

    M569 P1 S0 ; Drive 1 goes reverse

    Change S0 to S1 to reverse the Y motor direction.

    ; Endstops
    M574 X1 Y1 Z0 U2 S0 ; Set active low endstops
    ; Endstops
    M574 X1 Y1 S0 ; Set active low and disabled endstops

    Change to M574 X1 Y2 Z0 U2 S0 (you need only one line).

    Then reverse the Y movement directions in your homey.g file and the XY homing section of your homeall.g file.



  • Thanks Guys, Everything look good.
