Hello.
I need some help. One of my cnc router motors is hooked up wrong and thgis makes all the machining make a mirror image. If I machine symetric parts, then this is not a problem, but If I need to engrave some text, I usually make a mirror image already in the cad drawing. But I am tired of doing that. Is there a way in the turbocnc software to change the rotation direction of one of the motors? I looked on the axis config window and could not find anything. I don't want to change the motor wires, because I am not so smart about motors so I rather would like to do it by software means. Can someone point me to a right direction?
Thank you!

Change the Direction Pin for that axis. If it is currently "Hi" select "Lo" and vice versa.
