Everything is backwards


  • Active Member

    Just started with elekscam.
    Trial run with TEXTCARVE. Text orientation is left to right (Enlisgh). Laser starts text is engraved backwards - orientation right to left.

    Set 0, approximately middle point of machine.

    How do i get the text to engrave left to right?

    Did you use any software before? This can be one of several things. Your motor could be wired backwards. Unlikely if you had it working before elekscam. Your firmware could be wrong. There is a setting in the parameters that switches the x and y axis directions. Or your settings in elekscam could be wrong. (I don't use elekscam so I don't know it's settings menu). If there is a setting in elekscam to reverse the axis that would be the easiest solution. In t2 software this is an option. That is the software I use.

    I downloaded elekscam. click the button in the picture where the arrow is pointing to reverse the x axis. 0_1489960052880_x axis.jpg
