Prints mirrored on x-axis

Postby bolweevil » Sat Apr 15, 2017 2:37 pm

My earlier test prints I was using during earlier calibration and testing steps were all basic geometric shapes so I did not notice this issue until last night when printing a test pattern with some lettering and numbering.

Simply inverting the x-axis in the configuration file doesn't appear to be the solution as that simply caused my cheapskate to move in the wrong direction on the tower, as I suspected it would. I suspect there is another variable or setting that needs adjusted somewhere else in order to correct this anomaly. Sadly I have been unable to track down a solution on my own.

Aside from the mirroring it functions as expected. But manually mirroring all my prints in my slicer seems like a clumsy workaround to a problem that can probably be corrected on the printer itself.

With power off, swap your X and Y motor connectors, and your X and Y endstop switch connectors. Then recalibrate at least the X and Y endstop corrections.
