    Default x axis needs mirror

    Hi, I have a chinese 4030T device. Now I have a problem that picture in software (only x axis) needs mirroring. I am using CNC USB Controller
    Y is OK, Z is OK, but x needs mirroring. I can not see any setting for it... any help?

    The easiest thing to do would be to flip the drawing in your CAD software and regenerate the toolpath in CAM. If that won't work for some reason, you could change the direction bit for the X axis, but you'd have to remember that everything's backwards now, and to change it back when this job is done.
