z and y axis invert issues
I'm new here and to this world so please be gentle. In universal g code sender when reversing z-axis $3=4, Z axis operates correctly, however Y axis is now reversed, When I reverse Y axis $3=2, Z axis reverts back to reverse operation.
The definition aof insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result, I'm close
@Wayne-K This would be so much easier using T2Laser software, you just select from the menu to reverse the axis but since you want to do it the hard way .
If you set $3=0 all the axis will be "normal", so now, say you need to reverse the Y and Z (I think that's what you're saying) then that requires the 2nd and 3rd bits to be set (the first bit is the X axis).
So you want binary 00000110 or 6 in decimal. Command is $3=6.
If you only need to reverse the Z then you were correct in $3=4 because that would require only the 3rd bit set 00000100.
Thanks for the reply, I will try when I get home later this PM. Does T2 laser support engraving 3 axis?
$3=0 then $3=6 Fixed it. Thanks for your help. T2 seems to be a viable alternative but that 30 minute trial makes it tough to get a handle o n things. IMHO
@Wayne-K You can restart it over and over, no limit. If I didn't have a restriction in some way no one would register and I would quickly stop development as the costs each month are too high for me to personally bear without support from users.
@Zax I understand completely , but a 30 day limit would be a much better trial.
