This is a new one. Went to play with my mpcnc and the x axis is backwards. Right is left, left is right, even homes the wrong direction. If I click the reverse direction checkbox, that fixes the the left and right issue, but it still homes the wrong direction. Haven’t made any changes, it’s actually been unplugged for a while, been using the lowrider. Nothing has been changed hardware wise, the only thing that could change would be repetier, but I don’t think I’ve even updated that lately either.June 16, 2018 at 12:56 pm #61736
HAHAHA got you. You were out working and I snuck in and flipped the connectors!
I have no idea how the heck that could possibly happen. Is the Z the other way as well?June 16, 2018 at 1:00 pm #61737
Nope, everything else is the right direction. I’m going to pull the board out and flip the connector, see if that fixes it. It’s weird though. cnc.js does it as well, moves backwards, and homes the wrong direction. Weird.June 16, 2018 at 1:06 pm #61738
Well, that fixed it for now. That was weird. Had to remove 6 screws just to get to the connector, so it’s not like anybody was screwing with it. Not that I ever have anybody over to screw with it in the first place…June 16, 2018 at 1:08 pm #61739June 16, 2018 at 1:45 pm #61742
Yea, that guy is an asshole. I live in the country, we have enough bugs in the house.June 16, 2018 at 2:41 pm #61743June 16, 2018 at 3:08 pm #61749
Bamboo?!? How does it cut?June 16, 2018 at 3:57 pm #61751
Really well actually. I think the 80% stepover for the roughing passes is a little too big, maybe 75% would work better, it splinters along the grain at 80. Kinda like oak. The finishing pass is really smooth though. I got the flip wrong, so I’m running another part, changed the work piece to a whole number this time, trying to cut .46mm is kinda dumb.June 16, 2018 at 4:03 pm #61752
I still haven’t done any really two sided cuts where the second side actually mattered that much. I think I have to try it on a PCB, super accurate and a tool change involved. I mean I have a CNC biz…kinda gotta prove myself right?June 16, 2018 at 4:13 pm #61754
Ends up being a tool change and a flip!

Nice, it does look like it cuts a bit differently. I have to try some bamboo.June 16, 2018 at 4:49 pm #61757
IKEA, cutting board, stupid cheap!June 16, 2018 at 5:05 pm #61758
Top side with some actual detail! Will make a second one tomorrow and print the connecting piece.June 16, 2018 at 6:15 pm #61759June 16, 2018 at 6:24 pm #61764
Yes!!!June 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm #61789
Crap. Messed up the flip again…

The flip is kicking my ass! Just got a beautiful top finished, flipped it to do the finish pass on the bottom, cuts through the center… 🙄June 21, 2018 at 1:24 pm #62028
Noooooo, that sucks.June 26, 2018 at 7:40 pm #62403June 27, 2018 at 4:58 am #62426
I stopped by Ikea and picked up a couple more cutting boards, so once I get some time I’ll redo the cam. Right now I only have two holding tabs, I think three would be better.
