    Bought the UC100 USB motion controller- Having issues signs are printing backwards

    Hi guys , I was wondering if you could help me figure something out. We bought the UC100 USB motion controller to test on one of our machines while it works, everything is printed backwards. I have looked online to no avail on how to get our machine to print in the correct direction. We would love to purchase more of these for the other machines in our shop. We just need to figure this out first.

    I have attached some images to further illustrate the issue and I linked a video I posted on youtube showing how it prints.

    Thanks

    Looks like just Y axis is reversed

    Try checking dir low/active for the Y axis only, restart mach3 and see if that works

    Hello thanks for your reply! I tried doing that but it stayed the same.
