View Full Version : DRO backwards

OK guys i may completly be missing the point here but im sure ive seen how to do this, but for the life of me figure it out.

Control box is all wired up perfect by a good friend (AdCNC) however i have had a play so if its withing the box its not his fault!

My table has the following dims:

3mtrs long (X)
1.2mtrs wide (Y)

Now... im running 2 x Nema 34 along the X, motors all run perfect and in the right direction, however when i move the X it shows movement in the Y DRO.!!!

Also when i tune the motors i have to change it in the Y to apply changes to the X

What am i missing here guys

Your missing that you have wired to the X motors to Y axis on BOB. Either change the wires or swap the pin numbers in ports n pins.

OK so no matter what i do it still reads the same.

If you imaging the table, my pc and keyboard are at the bottom of the table with the back of the screen facing the gantry.

So the 'forward' and 'backwards' oporates the X motors as it should, but on the DRO Y is moving...

and when i hit 'left & 'right' X Dro moves lol

only other thing is to mount the PC to the side of the machine. am i right in thinking that the US have different views on which is X,Y,Z?

got me puzzled
